My commitments to the residents of Ward 5
Welcome to a refreshed Ward 5 website with updates about the exciting projects underway in our part of the City. Despite the incredibly difficult year the Covid 19 Pandemic, progress on some outstanding projects continues.
Please look through the website with particular attention to the incredible park under construction north of Eglinton between Fairwind and Hurontario. The playground is custom designed around a nautical theme with a massive shipwreck at it’s centre, a lighthouse and a series of extras including a whale and other beautifully crafted ocean-side objects for interactive play. Not only will children be able to enjoy physical exercise on completely accessible equipment, their imaginations will be stimulated as they climb over the pirate ship and bounce in the surrounding lifeboats.
Further north in the Village of Malton there are two projects underway – the construction of a full scale AVRO Arrow to be installed on a massive arm, high above the Flight Garden in Paul Coffey Park on Derry Road. This $3 million dollar project, financed through Tourism Mississauga, Federal Gas Tax money and private donations will be a tribute to the incredible aerospace industry that got its start in Malton and continues today with over 300 individual flight-related industries.
Also under construction we have the Jonathan Davis Youth Hub attached to Lincoln Alexander Secondary School, repurposing the space formerly occupied by an indoor swimming pool. Again, funding in the amount of $3.6 million from the City of Mississauga, the Region of Peel and private donors will create an incredible space exclusively for youth programming including a fully equipped teaching kitchen and a recording studio for budding artists.
Please take a tour through Ward 5. Take time to enjoy glimpses of past Fall Fairs, Santa Claus Parades and Malton Canada Day Celebrations – events we look forward to once again enjoying in the very near future.
Ward 5 is an extremely diverse ward with two distinct but complementary sections that make an incredible challenge for those who would serve it well.
Filled with warm, friendly and hard-working people, Ward 5 residents deserve to be treated with respect and provided with excellent service from their Councillor.
My commitments to you:
- I bring my experience and my ability to attract private sector donations and senior government grants to Ward 5
- I ensure we get our fair share of the huge tax base that is produced in Ward 5
- I watch carefully, every week at City and regional Council, ensuring not one penny of your hard-earned tax dollars is wasted
- Most importantly, I ensure your calls are returned promptly, your questions answered and your opinions valued
