Good Afternoon All,

Thank you for attending my community meeting on April 23, 2018.

Please find attached my notes, and notes made by the City’s Planning staff at the April 23rd meeting.  Also included are  notes from my meeting with the Applicant held on May 24, 2018.

A Public Information Meeting will be held on Monday,  June 11 at 6:30pm in Council Chambers regarding this Application.  This Public Information Meeting is the first official meeting wherein the Members of Planning and Development Committee (PDC) will here this Application.  At that time, the Applicant will make a short presentation to PDC (made up of the Mayor and Members of Council). Members of PDC will have an opportunity to ask questions, provide input, etc.  Members of the community will also be permitted an opportunity to speak.

The Agenda will be available for viewing online at http://www.mississauga.ca/portal/cityhall/planninganddevelopment  one week prior to meeting.   This Item will appear as OZ 17-14 W3 – Bloor Street and Fieldgate and marked Information Report.  The Report will contain a summarization of the community’s comments, mention of the Petition received, etc.  In the normal course, City Planning staff and the Applicant will work through the Application based on comments and recommendations made at PDC.  This is typically a back and forth information exchange that can take some time.  A subsequent meeting will be held before Planning and Development Committee wherein a Recommendation Report will be presented by City Planning Staff to PDC.
