    Study Introduction and Process

    As part of Phase 2 of the Downtown Strategy, the City of Mississauga has initiated the Downtown Movement Plan (DMP). The DMP will identify the transportation infrastructure and policies required to support and guide the continued development of Downtown Mississauga in two phases:

    This study will deliver a Transportation Master Plan (TMP) as described in Approach #1 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Process (Municipal Engineers Association June 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015). This Study will satisfy Phase I and Phase II of the Municipal Class EA process - to identify the Problem and Opportunity, and to identify and evaluate Alternative Solutions to the Problem or Opportunity, respectively. Throughout Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the DMP, there will be opportunities for public engagement and to share your feedback on transportation and mobility in Downtown Mississauga.

    This meeting fits into Phase I of the EA process, inviting you to provide feedback into what works and what doesn’t work in Downtown Mississauga.

    Study Area

    The figure below illustrates the study area for the DMP. It includes the City’s Downtown Core bounded by the Highway 403 corridor to the north, Chalfield Lane/Shipp Drive/Robert Speck Parkway to the east, Webb Drive/Elm Drive to the south, and Grand Park Drive/Wallenberg Crescent/Rathburn Road to the west.
