NOTICE OF STUDY COMMENCEMENT FOR EXPANDED STUDY AREA

Area Map

Background
In June 2009, we began a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for improvements to Mississauga Road from Olde Base Line Road to Bush Street and Bush Street from Mississauga Road to Winston Churchill Boulevard. We are now expanding the limits of our EA to include Olde Base Line Road from Mississauga Road to Winston Churchill Boulevard, and Winston Churchill Boulevard from Olde Base Line Road to Bush Street (see map).

Why did we expand the study area?
Based on the feedback received for the Mississauga Road / Bush Street EA, we expanded the study area to review road safety, sight lines, drainage, parking and pedestrian and cycling needs.

This EA will not consider increasing the number of lanes. We will build on the previous study to provide a solution for the study area that meets the needs of all road users and maintains the character of the community.

The Process
The aim of the Class EA process is to provide everyone who has an interest or stake in the study area with the opportunity to create the best solution for the corridor. The project team, with your input, will:

  • define the problem statement;
  • develop and evaluate planning alternatives; and,
  • determine a preferred solution.

We will provide opportunities to be involved through planned public meetings at key milestones as the study progresses. A Community Working Group is also being established for participation in two workshop meetings. Information on participating as a representative will be available on the Region's website after July 25, 2012. When the study is finished, a Notice of Study Completion and an Environmental Study Report (ESR) that presents the study findings will be published. The results of the study will be available for review for 30 calendar days.

Comments
Your participation is important and your comments are valued. We invite you to provide input at future public meetings or by providing comment as the study develops. You can also review the study progress on our website at: peelregion.ca/pw/roads/environ-assess
