The MeadowWood Rattray Residents Association-Spring 2019 Newsletter
Greetings to everyone in the MWRRA neighbourhood!
2019 has become the year of transformation or change. Changes that will be impact us as Residents of Clarkson, Mississauga, the Region of Peel, and as citizens of the Province of Ontario.
There will be many development pressures coming in the months and years ahead. The Clarkson Transit Area (TSA) Study has asked for community feedback to help create a vision for the future of this area. This will be an area of intense development. Along with the other developments along the Lakeshore there will be more than 60,000 people/cars moving into the Lakeshore corridor from Southdown Rd. through Lakeview.
The government of Ontario has decided to review Regional Governance across Ontario. This review has been rushed, conducted without any unbiased research/studies and the government plans to make the decision that will impact all of us for decades to come in a 2 month time frame. Shouldn’t the residents of Peel ultimately be the ones to decide the fate of their region? Mississauga Council is pushing for secession based on a rushed Report and limited research. The Region’s Deloitte report and the City’s Corporate Report are contradictory. As a Resident it is very difficult to make a decision for Secession, Amalgamation or Status Quo based on the data currently available. Go to our website for more information – MWRRA.ca
