Renovations Set To Begin On Mississauga City Centre Transit Terminal at Square One

Work Scheduled for Completion by Fall, 2021; Elevator to be Out of Service from April to July, 2020

In February, the City Centre Transit Terminal (CCTT) will undergo a complete interior renovation to transform the City’s busiest facility into a modernized space with improved accessibility and services for MiWay customers. The project is expected to be completed by fall 2021.

“Exciting things are underway this year. The CCTT was built in 1996 and is a 23-year-old facility. It is located in downtown Mississauga with more than 45,000 commuters accessing it every day. The building requires upgrades to meet the growing needs of our community,” said Geoff Marinoff, Director, Transit. “This facility is an important part of the customer experience for many MiWay riders. Every effort will be made to ensure disruption is minimal and that fare and customer information services will continue to be provided onsite.”

During the renovations, the CCTT will remain accessible to the community with some areas temporarily out of service. It is anticipated that the elevator will be temporarily out of service from April until July 2020. Customers are encouraged to look for directional signage indicating access points. Customer service for the information booth and fare booths will be relocated, but will remain onsite throughout construction to serve commuters.

Steelheads to recognize Caledon minor hockey player Reese Meyer for Superhero game.

On Sunday January 26th, the Mississauga Steelheads host the Kitchener Rangers in the club’s first ever Superhero Game.

The Steelheads will be wearing speciality superhero jerseys, Black Panther themed, that will be available for auction following the game at CHL Auctions. Fans are also encouraged to join in on the action and dress up as their favourite superhero.

This game will also be recognizing a special individual who is fighting his own battle off the ice. In association with the Caledon Hawks, the Steelheads are showing support for 13-year-old Reese Meyer of Caledon East who was diagnosed with a brain tumour back in November. After learning about what Reese and his family were going through, the hockey club reached out to the minor hockey association to get involved and have partnered on a ticket fundraiser for the game where proceeds from all tickets sold by the association will be directed back to the family. To date, they have sold upwards of 900 tickets.

 Owner and President of the Mississauga Steelheads, Elliott Kerr commented on the game. “The hockey community is a very tight, very supportive family. I was touched by the strength of Reese and his family and by the positive energy surrounding him and the overwhelming desire by so many that wanted to help. The hockey community is one amazing community.”

Owner’s of 401 Dixie Kia Katie and Eric also spoke to the special tribute. “As proud partners of the Steelheads and members of the local hockey community, we’re very excited to be the official sponsor of Superhero Night in support of Reese Meyer and his family. Supporting events like this and being able to make a difference in our community is very important to us and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of the day. We’d like to encourage hockey fans in the region to secure their seats to the game through the Meyer family and help us make the game a resounding success.”

Flood Watch Issued by Credit Valley Conservation

The Surface Water Monitoring Center of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry advises that an intense low-pressure system will reach Southern Ontario Friday night. Rain and freezing rain totals ranging from 40 to 65mm is expected Saturday and Sunday. 

Heavy precipitation, melting of snow and frozen ground conditions could generate high runoff along all watercourses in the area. Flooding may occur along the Credit River, its tributaries and tributaries draining directly to Lake Ontario. 

Strong winds could gust over 100 km/hour on Sunday morning as the low-pressure system moving through and out of Southern Ontario. Depending on wind and wave direction, flooding and erosion may occur along the shorelines of Lake Ontario. 

As a result, local streams, rivers, and shorelines could become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. The public should be warned to stay away from all watercourses, especially children and pets. 

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. This Flood Watch will be updated by 2pm on Tue-Jan-14-2020.

City of Mississauga Seeks Public Input on Updates to Noise Bylaw

How Much is Too Much Noise? Have Your Say on How Noise is Regulated in Mississauga

The City of Mississauga is updating its Noise By-laws to make them more responsive to community needs. As the City evolves from a suburban community to an urban centre, there is an opportunity to modernize how noise is regulated. 

City staff are currently reviewing the Nuisance Type Noise By-law and the Noise Control By-law and will consult with residents and stakeholders on a range of proposed options. The potential changes will cover aspects such as the complaint response process, residential and construction noise exemptions, permitted periods for amplified sound and noise thresholds.

Residents are encouraged to have their say by attending an upcoming public meeting, or providing feedback online by taking a survey, asking a question or sharing their ideas.
