Background

According to the City of Mississauga’s Strategic Plan, one of the City’s strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound, functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we build a City for the 21st century.

Sections of the municipal road network require rehabilitation as per the City’s two-year program. Required work includes removal and replacement of existing asphalt, improvement/installation of subgrades, replacement of concrete curbing and adjustments to manholes and catchbasins.

Project details:

  • Estimated cost: $26.2 million
  • Contractor
    • Four Seasons Site Development
    • Associated Paving
    • Furfari Paving

Objectives and benefits

This project allows for the rehabilitation of roadways at an optimum point in their life cycle, such that the life of the road will be extended without extensive road reconstruction. This reduces future maintenance and capital cost. This also increases the averaged pavement condition index of the municipal road network, therefore contributing to the effective movement of people and goods, and improving road safety.

Lighted pathways within the parks system are used by pedestrians, cyclists, roller bladers and serve as pedestrian linkages connecting centre of activity, such a schools, public facilities, natural areas, institutions, shopping centres and connections to transportation routes.

Light standards along the City’s parks and trails are past their serviceable life. Some surfaces of pathways are deteriorating and are in need of repair or complete replacement.

Objectives and benefits

The electrical lighting infrastructure will be replaced, including underground wiring and conduit, poles, ballasts, bulb fixtures, etc. Rehabilitation of the pathway will involve reconstruction of pathway drainage and asphalt surface.

The refurbished lighted pathways will provide safe park access and encourage participation in leisure and recreation activities within park settings.

High efficiency bulbs and ballasts with code compliant supply systems will reduce energy consumption.

This project has environmental and safety benefits such as energy savings and avoiding hazardous situations.

Wastewater facilities, which are designed to remove and collect sediments and other contaminants from local urban stormwater runoff, are very near capacity for sediment collection. Major maintenance is essential to restore stormwater quality treatment function and performance of the facility; to protect the downstream natural water resources and aquatic contaminants associated with urban runoff; and to extend the useful life of the facility.

Project details

  • Estimated cost: $500,000
  • Consultants: Sernas & Associates Limited
  • Contractors: Hollandia Land and Environmental Services

Objectives and benefits

Dredging and rehabilitating the existing stormwater management pond facilities will remove and dispose of accumulated sediments and will re-instate aquatic and upland vegetative plantings within the pond block.

Stormwater quality treatment function will be restored and downstream natural water resources and the aquatic environment will be protected from the release of harmful sediments and other contaminants associated with urban runoff.

The useful life of these facilities will be extended and the City’s capital investment will be protected. Environmental benefits include the protection of downstream aquatic life, habitat, and surface water resources.

This project improves efficiency of the transportation network specifically related to local and inter-regional public transit vehicles in the Mississauga City Centre.

The Rathburn Road Transit Priority Measures project has been updated with an interim design to provide for new bus stations and shelters along the existing boulevards of Rathburn Road from Hurontario Street to Duke of York Boulevard to accommodate the need to facilitate the transit ridership demands.

This interim design/construction is in advance of the future re-allocation of existing road space between Hurontario Street and Duke of York Boulevard in the Mississauga City Centre that will allow for installation of median reserved bus lanes on Rathburn Road. This project incorporates the existing Mississauga Transit City Centre Terminal as well as the GO Transit Station Gate Terminal.

Objectives and benefits

This project improves efficiency of the transportation network specifically related to local and inter-regional public transit vehicles in the Mississauga City Centre. Providing priority to public transit will attract additional transit ridership and reduce automobile trips, with the aim of ultimately reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Redevelopment will address current deficiencies in the areas of accessibility, safety and energy consumption. Work will include resurfacing the floors in high traffic areas, adding non-slip coating to floors, and reduced energy consumption through more efficient power and communication routing.

Project details

  • Estimated cost: $2.7 million
  • Project management: SMG Canada
  • Architect: Parkin Architects
  • Contractor: PCL Contractors

Background

According to the City of Mississauga’s Strategic Plan, one of the City’s strategic goals is to build and maintain infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound, functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we build a City for the 21st century.

The Hershey Centre SportZone is the City’s major public assembly facility, comprised of a 5,400 seat spectator arena, a three ice pad community arena, indoor regulation soccer field, triple gymnasium, gymnastics centre, outdoor sport fields and expansive parking area. It is home to Mississauga cultural and sports organizations, boasting an attendance of over 3 million users per year.

Since it opened in 1998, there have been minimum requirements for facility design and long-term Capital upgrades. Today’s more stringent standards have resulted in the need to upgrade multiple components of the Hershey SportZone’s infrastructure, such as installation of power and communications throughout the complex to improve public safety and meet a range of new activities; redevelopment and construction of public facility operation areas including equipment and fixtures; upgrading the kitchen; painting, flooring and other improvements in the public and back-of-house areas. Redevelopment will extend the lifecycle of the facility while correcting deficiencies in safety and accessibility.

Objectives and benefits

As host of the 2011 Memorial Cub and the combative arts competition of the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games, the Hershey SportZone will see a dramatic increase in attendance. Redevelopment will address current deficiencies in the areas of accessibility, safety and energy consumption. Benefits of this redevelopment, to the community include: the ability to better serve Mississauga’s aging population by resurfacing the floors in high traffic areas and adding non-slip coating to floors; reduced energy consumption through more efficient power and communication routing; increase usability by the community through improvements to technical and production areas; increase ability for multi-lingual messaging to facilitate use by multicultural groups.

Details and project schedule for the redevelopment of Civic Square (now known as Celebration Square).

Background

According to the City of Mississauga’s Strategic Plan, one of the City’s strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound, functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we build a City for the 21st century.

The City’s Civic Square is the premier location for large events, connecting residents and community groups through arts, culture and heritage. The “My Mississauga” Events Program including Canada Day attracted over 250,000 residents in 2008.

Existing physical and mechanical infrastructure including the outdoor skating rink, fountain, waterfall and waterproof membrane are at life expectancy. Constructed as two separate spaces separated by City Centre Drive, the square is not capable of supporting large events. Performance infrastructure including stage, sound and lighting are inadequate.

Project details

Objective and benefits

The City Centre has seen significant residential growth over the past five years creating a more vibrant downtown. Revitalization of the square has been proposed following extensive public consultation. An aging infrastructure will be replaced, including the skating rink and fountain and the Civic Square will be developed as an outdoor community centre with amenities to support “My Mississauga” cultural and heritage events. Based on the design concept, the square is expected to achieve recognition as one of the great public spaces in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

The principles of placemaking have been incorporated in the design. The plan provides for one large square, an interactive water feature converting to a skating rink in winter, a permanent stage with performance infrastructure, a market area to support cultural events, and upgrades to the amphitheatre to address deficiencies.
A linear digital media wall in line with the permanent stage will support events, provide interactive art capability and opportunity for commercial advertising. The design will incorporate improved access to City Hall and linking of events on the square to the Great Hall and the Central Library.

Design concepts and features

One Larger Square

  • Link the two squares together by removing sections of existing walls at the southern edge of the Civic Square and improving the grade transitions by redesigning the steps from the Square to the City Centre Drive Boulevard
  • Redesign City Centre Drive as a street through a pedestrian precinct to serve as a route that moves vehicular traffic that can be easily closed during event programming

Expansion of the Skating Rink

  • Double the size of the existing ice surface on the square and replace the existing outdated ice refrigeration unit with new dependable ice-making technology to allow a longer skating season and greater certainty to maintain ice during the season

Interactive Water Feature

  • Replace the existing reflecting pool on the Civic Square with a zero-edge water feature, meaning that the surface of the new water feature will be at the same grade as the surrounding square, using recessed water jets provided, thereby maximizing flexible use and programming of the square

Redeveloped Amphitheatre

  • Open up the amphitheatre by removing walls that currently separate it from the square and raising the low floor to connect it with the redesigned square; construct washrooms and a greenroom to support regular event programming for up to 350 people and install a permanent shade structure

Large Open Lawn

  • Reconfigure the lawn surface on the Central Library Square at a level grade condition with proper drainage to host activities

Permanent Stage

  • Develop a permanent outdoor stage with a sound system at the southern boundary of the Central Library Square to support My Mississauga event programming and all major event programming year round. This location would require the removal of the existing water fountains.

Media Wall

  • Install a media wall along the southern boundary of the Central Library Square, which could incorporate programmable and interactive digital arts

Market Area

  • Establish an area for a variety of specialized seasonal open air markets with approximately 40 vending stalls on the Central Library Square (a section of the market area will be protected by a permanent open-sided roof structure – any new market development would be done in consultation with the Mississauga Central Lion’s Club
