Are there any plans for the permanently closed Kings Masting PS?
The City does not have jurisdiction over public schools and as
such, is not aware of any plans to permanently close Kings Master Public
As the school is owned by the Peel District School Board, it
would be the responsibility of the School Board to determine whether or not the
school should be permanently closed. If the Board decided to permanently close
the school, they would then need to determine whether or not they wanted to
retain or sell the property. If the Board decided to sell the property, they
would be required to follow a legislated process and offer the property to
various public bodies (including the City) prior to listing the property for
sale on the open market. As part of this process, the City would review the
property based on a variety of factors and determine whether or not there is a
potential municipal use for the site. As of the present time, the Site has not
been declared surplus by the Board and therefore not offered to the City or any
other public bodies for their consideration to purchase.
The City recommends that you contact the School Board for further
information on this matter.
Is there anywhere I can see the playground plans for the current river grove community centre playground Reno?
The playground at River Grove Community Centre is being redeveloped into an inclusive play space for all children to enjoy. The highlight of the new design includes new inclusive playground equipment; additional inclusive swing; two shade structures; new rubberized playground surface; improved gather space and bio-retention system to capture stormwater. The construction is to be completed in June 2018. There is a plan available for viewing at the Community Centre or you can get in touch with Kyle Yang, Project Manager to request a digital copy.
what is happening with a north west parcel of vacant land a block west of Hurontario St. along north side of Eglinton Ave ? A few days ago a significant section of that land was lined with a blue fence and a some construction equipment was left there....?
Thanks for your interest in the developments at Eglinton Avenue
West and Fairwind Drive. You’re right, preparation of the site for
construction of a Fire Station has begun. Perimeter fencing and land
clearing are part of the preparations – you’ll soon see the surveyors’ trailer
and space cleared for construction parking and equipment. When complete,
the parcel of land will contain both the Fire Station and a community park.
Design for the park has also begun.
A Public Information Session about the park and its design will be held
at Cooksville Creek Public School (5100 Salishan Drive) on Tuesday June 5, 2018
from 6:30 to 8pm. An invitation notice about the session will be mailed
to local community members in May. Community members are invited to
attend, ask questions and be updated on the project’s progress and next
steps. If you have questions or are unable to attend the Public
Information Session and would like to be added to an e-mail updates list,
contact Justin Agius, Park
Planning, City of Mississauga.
What is happening to Eastgate Park? It is under construction and closed off. I have not heard of any plans.
Thanks for your question.
Eastgate Park is
closed to the public. We’re currently installing an
underground stormwater retention (storage tank). We anticipate that the
park will reopen to the public late summer
A Public Information session was held earlier this year on April 18 and
was advertised in The Mississauga News on April 13, 2017. Construction
notices were delivered to the surrounding community between October
