Nine Creek Trails (Multi-use Trail) Update
I n June 2019, Council announced the new name for the multi-use trail along the Hydro Corridor, naming it the “Nine Creeks Trail”. The name Nine Creeks Trail recognizes the various creeks that intersect the trail through some of Mississauga’s oldest and most established neighbourhoods.
Once fully complete, the trail will have creek crossings at Sheridan Creek, Turtle Creek, Birchwood Creek main branch, Birchwood Creek secondary branch, Lornewood Creek, Stavebank Creek, Kenollie Creek, Mary Fix Creek and Cooksville Creek.

There are a number of utilities such as Trans Norther Pipeline, Hydro One and Alectra who need to do required maintenance in some of the sections before the work to build the trail proceeds which has caused some delays from the original timelines.

WATERMAIN REPLACEMENT AND IMPROVEMENT
Silver Birch Trail, Malibou Terrace, Boulder Creek Crescent, Cristina Court, Marshwood Place
Project 19‐1310 H
CITY OF MISSISSAUGA

What are we doing?
·     Replacing and improving the aging watermain along Silver Birch Trail, Malibou Terrace,
Boulder Creek Crescent, Cristina Court, Marshwood Place as shown on the attached
map.
·     Replacing the water service pipe to your service box if it is connected to the replaced
portion of watermain.

Why?
·     To upgrade the water system capacity and reliability as part of the Region of Peel’s
State of Good Repair program.

When?
·     We expect to start work on or about August 19, 2019.
·     Watermain installation and temporary asphalt placement should be completed before
December 31, 2019. The Contractor will remobilize in May to complete restoration by
the end of June 2020. All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.
·     We will start restoring the road when all water system replacements and transfers are
complete, and as weather permits
Working Hours
·     Our contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These hours are
consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. We understand this may cause some
inconvenience, but a shorter working day would mean the project would take longer to
complete.

Traffic and Parking Control
·     We may need to reduce traffic to a single lane during construction.
·     If we have to reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions.
·     On‐street parking will be reduced during construction.

Be a Responsible Pet Owner
As dog owners, we should set a good example by being courteous and abiding our A nimal Care and Control By-law by leashing, licensing and picking up after our dogs. This will make our communities safer places to walk, cycle and play in.
Did You Know?
Dogs must be leashed whenever they are not at home, such as in public places, including City parks. Your dog’s leash should not exceed 1.8 metres (6 feet) in length.  

A leash keeps your dog safe from dangers such as: 
  • Getting lost
  • Unfriendly dogs and wildlife such as coyotes
  • Coming into contact with dead or diseased wildlife
  • Eating things like poison, animal poop or drinking from contaminated puddles
  • Running into traffic or getting hit by a car

A leash benefits you, your dog and the community by: 
  • Preventing your dog from scaring or jumping on children, other people or pets
  • Preventing lawsuits, vet bills and By-law tickets

Leash Safety Tips
  • Check that your dog’s collar and leash is properly fitted and in good repair
  • Use a 1.8 metre (6 feet) leash, retractable leashes do not allow for proper control
  • Train your dog to walk on a leash and if needed, seek help from a dog trainer
  • Use caution when meeting other dogs, as leashes can get tangled

Leash-Free Zones
Mississauga has eight leash-free zones for you and your dog to enjoy. For a list of leash-free zones in Mississauga: mississauga.ca/leashfreeparks

Scoop that Poop
There is no excuse for not picking up after your dog. It is not only the law; it is the environmentally responsible thing to do. 
  • There are an estimated 60,000 dogs in Mississauga. They produce about 9 metric tons (9.9 tons) of dog waste per day and 3,300 metric tons (3,630 tons) a year.
  • Dog waste is not fertilizer; it does not break down quickly like cow manure. Dog waste takes months to break down, is highly acidic and can harm the soil and kill grass and plants
  • Dog waste contains e-coli bacteria and/or parasites that are harmful to people.  Ringworm, roundworm, e-coli, salmonella and giardia are commonly found in dog feces and are easily transferable by contact to humans and dogs. 
  • Dog waste left on the ground contaminates our water. When it rains, dog waste bacteria soaks into groundwater and is carried by surface water to storm sewers which flow to nearby streams and watersheds. This can impact water quality and make swimming areas unsafe. 
Be neighbourly and considerate when walking your dog:
  • Respect private property
  • Avoid areas where children play
  • Carry spare poop bags with you
  • Carry a flashlight at night
  • Use scooping tools designed for mobility issues
  • Place dog waste in the garbage and not in the recycling bin. Or use one of the City’s designated in-ground waste containers.
Accessible Beach Routes Create Path to Inclusivity
Accessible beach routes have been installed at Jack Darling Memorial Park and Lakefront Promenade Park to help make Mississauga’s waterfront more accessible and inclusive for all. 

As the temperature heats up, Mississauga residents will flock to the city’s waterfront parks in search of a fun, free way to escape the heat.
Spending time at the beach may seem like an effortless way to enjoy the summer; however, for individuals who use mobility devices such as wheelchairs, scooters or walkers, taking part in this summertime activity can be challenging.

In an effort to remove and prevent barriers for persons with disabilities, the City is taking action to make Mississauga’s waterfront more inclusive and accessible for all with the addition of accessible beach routes at two of the City’s beaches.

The accessible beach routes were installed on June 28 in time for the Canada Day long weekend. A 100 per cent recycled polyester beach mat and directional beach access sign were installed at Jack Darling Memorial Park and Lakefront Promenade Park . The accessible beach routes allow for easier access to the beach by providing a nonslip, accessible surface for people with disabilities, older adults and parents with strollers.
  
By working to remove these barriers that exist in the built environment, projects like the Accessible Beach Routes Pilot project will help to make Mississauga a city where all people can access all places.
