"Dundas Connects" public meetings:
April 14 to 28



DundasConnects_TopBanner.jpg

Over the next 35 to 40 years the City of Mississauga expects that the number of people who live, work, learn and travel along Dundas Street will greatly increase. To manage this growth, the City is developing a long-term, future-oriented master plan for the Dundas Corridor, “Dundas Connects”. The plan will shape the future look and feel of Dundas, focusing on transit, land-use and public space.

The City intends to develop the plan with feedback from residents, business owners, developers and others. During the first phase of consulting with you, starting this month, City staff will introduce the project and explore how Dundas could change. They’ll seek feedback on your likes, dislikes and ideas to develop a plan for the future.

Staff have scheduled events for this first phase of consultation:

Today, Thursday, April 14, they’ve organized a consultation meeting with large landowners and developers in the area.

Other events for the general public take place in:

If you can’t attend an event, the City has developed an on-line engagement platform with a suite of consultation tools, including quick polls, conversation forums and idea walls.


According to City staff, “Dundas is a super street, exemplifying the City of Mississauga’s diversity. Along the corridor, you’ll find stores, businesses, parks, schools, churches, and beautiful neighbourhoods. Dundas is also a key part of Mississauga’s transportation network, with thousands of people using it every day to move around [Mississauga].”

From end to end, the Dundas Corridor is four kilometres wide and 17 kilometres long, stretching from Oakville to Toronto. The map highlights key intersections and points of interest that, the City says, are “focus areas” to study.

In June 2010, Metrolinx analyzed the benefits of building bus rapid transit along the Dundas corridor west of Kipling Station into Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington. You can review that study here. (.pdf)

Mississauga City Council is leading, and City staff are supporting, Dundas Connects. AECOM is leading an external consultant team, including SvN and Swerhun Facilitation. The consultant team provides expertise in land-use and development, transit and transportation, storm-water management, public policy development and public engagement.
