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

After a great deal of detective work, many conversations with the Province and strong cooperation from Brampton, a public meeting was held September 18, 2018 to announce the construction will begin Spring 2019 at a cost of $40 million dollars shared between the two cities. FINALLY!
Possibly the most exciting announcement involves conversion of the abandoned Lincoln Alexander SS swimming pool into a full Youth Hub. Closed seven years ago when the new Community Centre opened across the road, the City-owned building on Peel Board land has had its doors chained, waiting for just the right proposal for the more than 10,000 residents under the age of 19 who live in Malton. With the reminder that 11% for the Region of Peel’s operating budget comes from Ward 5,Read More

After years of promises, multiple delays and a fair share of mysetery, a Contract is being awarded in the amount of over $40 million to finally build the Goreway Bridge. Delays have driven the costs up by $19 million. The Brampton City staff are the lead on this project.
Goreway over the CN tracks will be closed for 12-15 months for construction, eliminating the need for track rerouting and detour construction which would add $9.5m to the costs and 26 months to the project.Read More
Now that spring rains are here, residents often start thinking about stormwater around their home. Many have questions about how the City manages stormwater from rain events.
The City’s stormwater system carries stormwater away from homes and businesses to keep people, properties and the natural environment safe.

Parked cars on City streets reduce the ability of our winter crews to efficiently clear roads. You can help by removing parked cars from the street when it snows to give equipment space to work.
An on-street parking restriction is in effect in Mississauga year-round between 2 to 6 a.m. Parked or stopped vehicles that violate the City’s Traffic By-law 555-00 or on-street parking restriction will be issued a $40 penalty notice. They will also be subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner.Read More
