Help Shape our City! Planning for a Vibrant and Connected “Uptown Node”

The City’s Uptown Node is growing rapidly. Located around Eglinton Avenue and Hurontario Street, the Uptown Node has several buildings under construction with new mixed-use developments on the horizon. The Uptown Node will also be served by a stop on the future Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT). To help guide this growth, the City of Mississauga is preparing an Official Plan Amendment (OPA) for the Uptown Node. We want to hear your feedback on the draft policies we’ve developed to address:

·       Retention of office and retail space

·       Affordable housing as part of new developments

·       New street locations

·       Block sizes

·       Future park locations
