Councillor Carolyn Parrish has pegged city-owned lands around Sheridan College as prime real estate for affordable housing.

Parrish made the recommendation at Monday’s planning committee meeting during a staff presentation on the city’s affordable housing gaps. The report concluded a gap exists in both income and supply in Mississauga and recommends the city work towards influencing the latter.

One way to do so, says Parrish, is to look at the city’s inventory of land, including the seemingly forgotten parcels around Sheridan College that are being used for parking.
