So much has changed since we last met at our Family Day Skate. We may not have met in person, but the WLPCA Board has been working hard on your behalf. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
Discussions on vacant buildings on Clarkson Rd (at train tracks) with Councillor Ras and property owners
Noise By-law deputation to City Council and a press release about proposed changes, which were not provided for community consultation.
WLPCA has been active with the Mississauga Residents’ Associations Network (Miranet) to raise residents’ concerns with proposed changes to Mississauga’s Noise Control By-law. Miranet is presently drafting concerns for review by the Mayor and Members of Council for Mississauga as the Council considers public comments amid prospective legislative change.
WLPCA is engaged to assist Miranet in preparing its comments on the proposed revisions to the Noise Control By-Law. Residents have concern that some of the proposed changes (e.g. expansion of the time frames in which noise will be legally tolerated) may have detrimental effects on the quality of life of residents in Lorne Park and may ultimately permit further nuisance from noise and noise pollution. Members interested in this matter are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how volunteer efforts can be made.
