Ward 9 Councillor's Report June 2015 - Vol 22

Dear Neighbour:
 
June has been a busy month and I am sure we are all looking forward to the summer when the pace of things becomes a little slower.

Please remember that children will be out and about having fun so watch for them as you are on the roads. 

There is a lot to do in the city this summer so please click here to check the calendar for Celebration Square and take part in one of our numerous free events.  We are fortunate to have miles of park trails in our ward and two lovely lakes to enjoy as you walk or cycle.  Take advantage of the free concerts at Lake Aquitaine hosted by Meadowvale Theatre on select Sundays.

Please remember to be cautious in wooded and grassy areas and check yourselves and your pets for ticks which are a concern this year and can cause Lyme Disease.  To find out how to prevent ticks and what to do if you do find them, check out the Region of Peel website here.  While there, learn also how to protect against West Nile Virus which is caused by mosquitoes. 

Have a safe and happy summer and remember that my staff and I are here to help you with any City or Regional issues.  Just send me an email to
pat.saito@mississauga.ca or call 905-896-5900 and check the Ward 9 website at www.ward9.ca for ongoing updates.

Sincerely,

The Public Meeting for the application for construction of 1 detached home and 20 semi detached homes on lands at 6532 and 6544 Winston Churchill Blvd. (just south of Aquitaine) was held at the Planning and Development Committee meeting on June 8th.

 

The report was just for receipt and a final report with recommendation will come back to the committee in the fall.  I want to thank the residents who attended and made very good comments and suggestions.  It has been a good process and through two ward meetings that I held, the developer has listened to the residents and made changes based on their input.

mic

I have held several community meetings on this application. City Planning staff are presently reviewing the application and are still finalizing the last parking study.

The final report and recommendation is tentatively scheduled to be presented at the Planning and Development Meeting at City Hall on September 21, 2015 starting at 7:00 pm.  I will confirm this date when I receive confirmation. 
Residents are welcome to attend this meeting and speak to the application.

 

Residents wishing to make formal written comments to be received by Council should email them to me at pat.saito@mississauga.ca.  Please state in your email that you grant me permission to forward your comments to the City Planners.

fireworks
Important Information about Fireworks on Canada Day
 

As we approach the Canada Day holiday which occurs on a Wednesday this year, I would like to share the following information regarding how complaints related to the discharge of fireworks are responded to within the City of Mississauga:

 

The discharge of fireworks located on private property is limited to Victoria Day and Canada Day (or the following day if the weather on the actual day makes the discharge of fireworks impractical.) Since this activity is limited to specific calendar days, the detonation of fireworks beyond midnight of the prescribed days would be prohibited.   

 

The discharge of fireworks in a City park is prohibited except when a valid permit has been issued.  Enforcement in city owned facilities and/or properties is the responsibility of City Corporate Security Services.  To report fireworks in a city park call 905-615-4060.  To report the discharge of fireworks on roads or sidewalks call 905-453-3311 for Peel Regional Police.

 

To apply for a permit for firework displays in parks, the basic requirements would be:

 

- A permit under the Fireworks By-law 0293 - 2001 (issued by Fire)

- Approval from Parks

 

Please call the Recreation Customer Service Centre at 905-615-4100 to apply for a permit and to inquire about availability and feasibility of your desired location (please note that not all parks allow enough space for safety).

Seniors'  $1 Transit Fare Pilot Project Approved
 
I am pleased that my colleagues supported the recommendation moved by Councillor Parrish and me to allow seniors to ride transit for $1 in off peak hours! 

  

We have been working on this project for some months and I spoke to many residents during the election campaign last fall and got overwhelming support for the proposal.  We will be doing this on a 6 month pilot and will review the usage at the end of that time.  At the same time we are looking at how we can provide a similar program to low income riders through a program at the Region of Peel.

   

The $1.00 cash fare for seniors will be effective starting Monday June 29, 2015 and will be in effect weekdays from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm and after 7:00 pm and at all times weekends and holidays.  Senior ID will be required as is currently required for Senior Tickets.  There is no requirement to specifically use MiWay issued senior ID cards although this may be convenient for some seniors.

 

I hope this will enable more of our seniors to become active and provide them with more accessibility throughout the city.

splashpad

Splash Pad at Lake Aquitaine Closed for the Summer 

 

I regret to advise that the Lake Aquitaine splash pad will remain closed for 2015 as staff have determined that there are safety concerns due to the construction of the Meadowvale Community Centre and Library.  In addition work is required to relocate some of the water lines that run thought the splash pad area.  We apologize for the inconvenience as I had hoped we could keep the splash pad operating this summer. 

 

The closest splash pads to our community are located at Quenippenon Park on Erin Centre Blvd and on McDowell Drive west of Tenth Line.

 

Also note that due to construction related to storm water discharge to Lake Aquitaine, some portions of the park pathway adjacent to the Meadowvale CC construction area will remain closed over the next 2-3 weeks.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Infected Ash Trees Being Removed in Parks 


City contracted crews are working in parks  to remove Ash trees infested with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). For most of the parks, signs will be posted and letters will be

sent to residents in the surrounding area.   All trees scheduled for removals have been marked with an orange X.  

 

Crews will be working Monday to Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.  After the initial tree removal, crews will remove the tree stumps, repair the ground with topsoil and reseed. All works will be weather dependent.


All City-owned park trees removed due to EAB will be replanted
over several years. This is due to the high number of trees removed from parks, the short planting season and weather conditions.

 

Forestry is currently working on plans to replant woodlots. Each woodlot is unique and will require additional work to create individual plans for each site. For some, that may mean letting them regenerate naturally while others will have trees replanted.

Meadowvale Trail Reconstruction
 
Another section of our park trails in Meadowvale is being reconstructed. Work should be completed within 4 to 6 weeks pending weather and site conditions.  

 

The contractor is starting north of Shelter Bay Road and south to Aquitaine Avenue then continuing south of Battlefield Road to Montevideo Road and Settler's Green Park and finishing south of Settler's Green Park to Montevideo Road and onto Windwood Drive to continue south connecting to the Lake Wabukayne Trail.  

Notice of Disruption signs will be posted at all main trail entrances and pathways will be accessible at the end of each working day.

Union Gas Park at Design Stage 
  

I know the community is excited about having a new park at Tenth Line and Aquitaine and following all the input from residents, we are moving ahead with design work.

 

The Consultant was hired in May and I expect that detailed designs and approval will be completed by August to go to tender in September. 

I will advise when the plans will be available for the community to view and hope to have them on display at the Meadowvale Library before final approvals are given.

We plan to break ground this fall and initial work will include a temporary ice rink for this winter's use.

We should be able to incorporate all the ideas from our community meetings into the park design and I know the community is looking forward to seeing the final plans as much as I am.

stormcharge

StormWater Charge Information


Starting January, 2016, you will see a City of Mississauga stormwater charge on your Region of Peel water bill.  Until this time, the charge for stormwater continues to be paid through your tax bill.  By moving to a separate billing system we can ensure that the funds collected are dedicated only to stormwater needs.  It also creates a more fair billing system as some properties create more run-off and will be charged more.


This funding will be used only for maintenance and upgrades to the City's $1.8 billion stormwater system to ensure it is kept in good repair and avoid future flood damage and expensive repairs.


Our stormwater system was built over the last 50 years to meet the needs of the city based on climate conditions at the time of construction.  The drainage system protects water quality and lowers the risk of flooding that can damage your property and the environment.  


Stormwater is the rain and melted snow flowing from our properties on to our streets and down into more than 40,000 storm drains; this water flows through a large and complex network of pipes and waterways directly into Lake Ontario.  As the city has grown the amount of hard surface areas (roofs and driveways) has led to increased water entering the system.


The greatest factor, however, that is impacting the current infrastructure is the change in climate that has resulted in more frequent and heavy rainfalls.  While our community was not impacted by flooding in summer of 2014, a large number of properties across the city were and experienced severe damage to homes.


There is more stormwater now than ever before and it's more expensive to maintain this system.  We need to invest more money in our stormwater system to keep it in good working order and to avoid costly repairs in the future. 


Stormwater charges are used by nearly 1500 municipalities in North America, including 19 in Canada and we used the experiences of others to determine how we would proceed.


In 2016, residential property owners will pay between $50 and $170 depending on the size of their rooftop, with the average detached home paying $100 per year.


Non-residential and multi-residential properties will pay $100 for every 267 square metres (2,874 square feet) of hard surface on that property.


The switch to the stormwater charge will result in approximately $6.7 million being removed from the tax base in the 2016 budget.  This is approximately a $25 reduction per household.  The new charge will provide an annual funding of $37 million.


Commercial, industrial and multi-residential properties can reduce their charge by making significant improvements to divert stormwater from the system.  I tried to include a similar rebate system for residential homes but staff advised that the administration cost would be more than the rebates.  I did ask that we find some way to reward residents who make changes such as disconnecting their downspouts from the system and I hope we will be able to introduce a program by the end of the year.


The City wants to minimize potential risks to you, your property and the environment. Learn more, watch the video at www.stormwatercharge.ca.

PanAm Games are Coming to Mississauga!
  
The world is coming to Mississauga to take part in and observe the 2015 PanAm (July 10-26) and Para PanAm Games (August 7-15). 

More than 10,000 athletes, coaches and officials from 41 countries are participating in the Games, the largest international multi-sport events ever hosted in Canada and the largest of its kind in the world behind the summer Olympics.

 

We are proud to be a host city and the fourth largest cluster for the games, the only host city outside the City of Toronto to host events every day of the Games.

 

Mississauga Sports Centre (Hershey Centre) is the venue for the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am sports of judo, karate, taekwondo, and wrestling, and the TORONTO 2015 Parapan Am sports of goal ball, powerlifting, and wheelchair rugby.  Expect to see the highest level of competition!

 

The excitement and energy of the Games will go beyond the individual events as Mississauga celebrates its passion for sport throughout the course of the Games, featuring a variety of events, festivals and concerts across the city. The Opening Ceremonies viewing party will be held at Mississauga Celebration Square on Friday July 10.

 

In addition to a world-class sports venue, we will welcome an estimated 50,000 visitors to Mississauga to discover all that Mississauga has to offer and to support our tourism based economy.

 

I am proud to serve as one of the Council representatives on the PanAm Host Committee and I encourage you to celebrate the games this summer.
