Downtown Fairview, Cooksville and Hospital Policy Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Project Background

The City of Mississauga is working on updating the Official Plan policies and seeking your feedback on how to manage the anticipated growth in Downtown Fairview, Cooksville, and Hospital communities along the Hurontario Street corridor. With the Hurontario Light Rail Transit (LRT) line on the horizon, these communities are expected to grow and change.

The new Official Plan policies aim to achieve vibrant, walkable, transit-supportive communities that offer a variety of housing choices, parkland, and natural areas. They will also provide direction on building heights, use of land, street connections as well as the design of buildings, spaces, and streets for these three communities.

There have been several key City-initiated studies for the Downtown Fairview, Cooksville, and Hospital communities. You may have contributed your comments during the community engagement for these studies. The revised policies will build on the recommendations developed in these studies and consider housing and other community needs. The planning policy and legislative contexts for these studies have changed and the City is required to update the policy directions to reflect the current context.


15-Minute City

Is Cooksville a “15-minute city”? Should it be?

We are thinking about the “15-minute city” concept – similar to how other great cities have thought about how we live, and where we shop, work, play and learn within a 15-minute walk from home.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.


    A 15-minute city is an approach to city planning focusing on building high-quality, livable communities where the basic needs of everyday life can be safely reached within 15-minutes by foot. Everyday needs like groceries, jobs, parks, medical clinics, pharmacies, schools, shops, restaurants, and more can be safely and conveniently accessed without the use of a car.


    As part of the Downtown Fairview, Cooksville, and Hospital Policy Review project launch, explore how this concept could be applied to Cooksville and provide feedback through this survey!
