The City is reviewing the Plan to ensure it reflects the changing needs of the community while conforming to updated provincial legislation. The details of this meeting are as follows:

· NEW – November 10 – 7 to 8:30 p.m. – City-wide and “North” (Wards 5, 9, 10, 11)

To learn more before the meetings, read the Research Briefs. These explain the Official Plan priority areas including housing, transportation, environment, complete communities, city structure and urban design.

The City’s Official Plan provides policies that guide and direct the physical change of the city. It manages the effects on Mississauga’s social, economic, cultural and natural environment. The Official Plan addresses:
· where housing, industry, offices, shops and roads should go
· which services and amenities (e.g., parks, transit) are needed and where they will be located
· where to focus growth and what it will look like

The City launched the Official Plan Review at a Special Council meeting held on June 10, 2019. For more information and to sign up for email updates, visit the public engagement page at https://yoursay.mississauga.ca/official-plan-review
