On July 23, 2021 — a scorching hot day— Earthworks started the installation of the massive ship, lighthouse and other amazing components of the incredible Fairwinds Park at Eglinton and Fairwind Drive. A long but fascinating day!
Thank you to Jay Kana of Modern Mississauga!
The City has completed the purchase of 27 acres of parkland, formerly used as a 9 hole golf course. The intention is to keep the land as passive recreation with walking trails, areas in which to picnic and just enjoy the peace and quiet of a large green space in the middle of a bustling city.
Once part of a 100-acre family farm owned and worked by the Scott family for over 80 years,Read More

It’s been 3 1/2 years since Netherwood Plaza was demolished. Shortly after it was discovered that a former dry cleaning shop had dumped toxic chemicals behind the unit, necessitating extensive remediation to the soil supervised by the Ministry of the Environment.
Whereas the City’s by-laws mandate safety fencing and weed control, there is nothing that can force an owner to put up hoarding that blocks the view of an ugly site.
The owner intended to build 26 attractive semi-detached homes and a corner convenience store.Read More
Finally, the long vacated Starwinds Grocery building next to the fire station on Goreway will be demolished to be replaced by two affordable apartment buildings and townhouses – much needed new residential units in Malton. The apartments are family-sized with two and three bedroom units. The location is conveniently within walking distance to Westwood Square, Paul Coffey arena and Park and the bus terminal. The Village has very little residential land remaining so this conversion of commercial space to residential will be most welcome.Read More
These buildings by Riocan have been approved on the east side of Hurontario at Bristol Road. They are replacing a portion of the plaza that was lost due to fire. They will be rental buildings, increasing the City’s low supply. Mississauga has been tasked by the Province, in conjunction with Brampton, to take 55% of accommodation for 700,000 new residents by the year 2051. Given we have very little land left to develop, the type of construction these buildings represent is practical infill where infrastructure like water/sewer pipes and roads as well as schools and community centres already exist.Read More
STUDIO BOTTEGA will be the first and largest purpose-built movie studio in Mississauga. We have had several warehouse conversions to produce a significant studio presence in the City, clustered in our ward. But this amazing project built by Leo and Alessandro DelZotto and SMART CENTRES will put Mississauga on the map!
Located on the South West corner of Derry Road and Maritz Drive, on the west side of Hurontario, the massive complex of two film studios,Read More
City Manager and Chief Administrative Officer Paul Mitcham tells the story in his response to the petition presented in February:
“… in response to the petition below requesting a 0% tax rate increase in City of Mississauga for 2021.
[The email] refers only to the local share of the tax rate increase subject to budget approval, but keep in mind that the overall tax rate is a combination of local and regional budget changes as below.Read More
This year we are recognizing Mississauga’s Black trailblazers, organizations and businesses who have gone above and beyond in the past year, during the pandemic, to help and uplift the community through various initiatives, programs and artistry.
Here are four community leaders that Carolyn would like to specifically acknowledge:
1. Hyacinth Harper and Beverly Patterson from Mount Zion Church in Malton. These two ladies have been running the Mount Zion Food Bank from two trailers in the church parking lot –
Our new park is coming soon! It will be accessed from Fairwind which runs North off Eglinton, slightly west of Hurontario. It will feature a nautical-themed creative playground, including The HMCS PINNACLE ship, sponsored by Pinnacle Developments (who donated land for the park and funding specifically for the ship). Other features of the playground include a whale, a lighthouse which will illuminate at night, small lifeboats on springs for bouncing on the waves, puffin fish and real sand on the “beach” section!Read More
The City recently purchased 9.5 acres of land to add to Malton Village Park – sections 1&3 on this diagram. The city will be building a field hockey pitch and a soccer field on that land for the community. There will be access and on street parking on Drew Road as well as the small parking lot off Beverly Street.
The land purchased was zoned “employment land” so it could not be used for the much needed housing in Malton.Read More

The spectacular MALTON letters on Derry Road were a joint project between the Province of Ontario’s previous Liberal Government and the Malton Business Improvement Association (BIA). It was tendered by the City and built by UNIT 11, the same company that built the letters at Toronto City Hall. The project was installed on time December 2019, and within the budget of approximately $400,000. The letters can be lit in any combination of colours but is most frequently in white with the red ❤️Read More

Funds at $3.1m and construction started. Lots more info to come!Read More
Residents were greatly disappointed when former Chief Evans decided to close the Community Police Station at Westwood Square for budget reasons. The relative isolation of the Malton Community, the more than 20 minute drive to the police divisions that served Malton, all combined to increase the crime rates over the 18 months that the station was closed.
The community got organized. A small group of residents, organized by Angie Munnick and Ann Barkley worked hard to collect over 3500 signatures on a petition asking for not only the reopening of the Community Station,Read More
