|The Region of Peel has initiated a Schedule ‘B’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class EA process for improvements to the intersections of Erin Mills Parkway/Dundas Street and Erin Mills Parkway/Burnhamthorpe Road in the City of Mississauga.
The study will examine the need for and feasibility of improvements to the intersections to address short term and long term issues related to planned future growth. The study will review opportunities to facilitate the movement of people, vehicles, transit, and goods, with attention to facilitating walking and cycling.
The Class EA process will include:
- public and agency consultation
- an evaluation of improvement alternatives
- an assessment of the possible environmental effects of the improvements, and,
- the identification of reasonable means to mitigate any adverse impacts
Public consultation is vital to the success of this study. We plan to hold one Public Information Centre (PIC) during the study. The PIC will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to meet the project team, and:
- obtain background information on the study and review the study scope
- discuss issues related to the project, including alternative solutions, environmental considerations and an evaluation criteria
As well as the mandatory PIC, the Region of Peel will be exploring other opportunities to engage the public, provide information and illicit feedback.
Notification of the PIC as well as any other public meetings will be provided by means of a similar advertisement and study newsletters. Upon completion of the study, an Environmental Study Report will be submitted to the Ministry of the Environment and other key agencies and made available for public review for a period of 30 days.
