Drawing inspiration from Mississauga residents

Over three days in December 2010, a local seniors’ community centre was transformed into “idea central” as almost 500 community members shared their ideas about a new Mississauga waterfront in the Lakeview area.

They arrived in groups of two or three. Some arrived alone but found their neighbours among the crowd. They came not only be to be inspired but also to provide the inspiration – ideas, dreams and thoughts with many sentences beginning with, “What if…” for the Mississauga waterfront in the Lakeview area.

It took three full days plus a kick-off event, partnered with discussions with residents, consultants, seniors, families and youth – lead by world-class planners, Urban Strategies Inc. and City of Mississauga staff, to craft the start of a vision for the waterfront.

group of residents

Crafting the vision together

Whether sketching new landscape design options with colourful markers or discussing all the angles with the consultants and staff or writing down ideas and placing them on postcards and sticky notes on massive boards, hundreds of residents came out in droves over three days in early December.

Their ideas were interpreted and transported to a huge model while two model makers transformed people’s ideas into water features, gardens, buildings and open-concept structures.

Thoughts from elected leaders

Among those turning out to share their thoughts about the waterfront were Member of Provincial Parliament Charles Sousa, Mayor Hazel McCallion and Councillors Chris Fonseca, Pat Mullin, Ron Starr, and Jim Tovey. They each took the opportunity to ‘get behind the waterfront’ and were excited to see how the vision for the Lakeview area waterfront connects to the overall vision of the City of Mississauga’s strategic plan.

Dream it, green it then build it

We heard from experts from Sweden, New York, Toronto and beyond – Erik Freudenthal, head of Communication, Hammarby Sjöstad, Stokholm, Sweden, Gail Lord President, Lord Cultural Resources, with headquarters in Toronto and 18 offices worldwide and Mathew Urbanski, Principal of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. Landscape Architects from New York, NY.

Their message? Define your waterfront. It’s your waterfront. Think about green spaces. Think about small spaces to enjoy. Build the structures later. But build it in ways to recoup the maintenance costs of your green spaces through economic development. It’s about balance. You define the balance.

On the third day of the visioning sessions, Urban Strategies Inc. began to pull together thousands of ideas over a mere few months of the highly-engaged residents and stakeholders.

The conversations and energy flowed from room-to-room as each discussion led to another thought of, “You know what we could do?” or “I’m thinking this…” Then the on-going buzz of conversations led to one round-table discussion after another.

The Ontario Power Generation (OPG) lands were opened up for a public tour – an up close look at an area that has been closed off to the community for decades. November also saw City of Mississauga staff join 350+ secondary students to gather youth oriented ideas and perspective on the potential for the waterfront development in Lakeview.

Touring Lakeview: Seeing is believing

Closed off to the community for decades, the Ontario Power Generation (OPG) lands were open for public viewing for the first time for many – one blustery day in November aboard a new MiWay Mississauga transit bus.

Seeing the lake up close

The tour was led by Bob Osborne, Director of Public Relations for OPG and landmarks included the water channels, the concrete pad that was the site of the power generation station and the “Four Sisters” stacks. The tour highlight was a walk out to the edge of the pier and a chance to experience the lake up close with a view of the Mississauga skyline. For many residents – this was the pinnacle culmination of many years of community engagement.

Connecting the youth

If you want to get a pulse of the future, just talk to the youth. This was another positive step in connecting inspiring ideas to the Inspiration Lakeview vision. 

City of Mississauga staff from the Strategic Community Initiatives division led 350+ secondary students from Cawthra Park’s LEAP Program (Leaders Empowering All People), John Cabot’s Green Team, Port Credit and St. Paul’s through a wide ranging presentation about the potential for waterfront development in Lakeview. Then we turned the tables – and turned the ideas over to the youth.

After many, many, many conversations, we asked the youth to write it all down. Their ideas, their dreams and their reality, not ours – and how they would get behind their waterfront.

 

It’s all about the ideas

Students from St. Paul’s Catholic High School went so far as to model their ideas and dreams for Lakeview. Mr. Mondelli’s grade 11 and 12 class produced models to show what they wanted to see on the site.

We received 100s of postcards from the students depicting their ideas that covered everything from: affordable condominiums, environmentally-friendly mini malls with distinct food outlets, underwater art displays, markets for locally-grown food, open spaces for theatre and music, an interactive boardwalk, wind-activated sculptures, a skate boarding park, a statue in the water affording all with a panoramic view of the City culminating with four windmills out in the water to represent a change in environment – from the “Four Sisters”, the towers of the former power plant to the four windmills of the future.

They too, got behind their waterfront.

The inspiration begins

Surrounded by a capacity crowd of nearly 300 people, Inspiration Lakeview kicked off a series of workshops on October 6th to develop a vision for the Mississauga waterfront.

With residents joining together from all over the City of Mississauga, the evening was filled with people sharing their thoughts, ideas and questions about waterfront development in the Lakeview area.

Attendees heard from two leading experts about waterfront development, business challenges and the potential for a world class waterfront to call our own. The focus of the evening was to start thinking about the possibilities, potential and realities of Inspiration Lakeview. Joe Berridge, partner at Urban Strategies Inc., and Barry Lyon, senior partner and president of N. Barry Lyon Consulting, shared global examples of successful projects providing insight and inspiration to all.

The Honourable Member of Provincial Parliament, Charles Sousa, Mayor Hazel McCallion and City Councillor Carmen Corbasson greeted the crowd sharing with them their enthusiasm and dedication in turning the vision for Lakeview into a reality.

Mapping your concerns

With the aid of a huge aerial study map, participants were asked to place a green dot on the places and features that they see as a positive element in the area. Red dots represented challenges or not-so-great aspects in the area.

This Poke-A-Dot wall serves as a highly visual way for the vision to take these things into consideration by building on the positive attributes of the area and working to improve the less desirable ones.

Share your inspiring images

How can a photo or a word help to share your vision for the waterfront? By creating a massive wall with everyone’s images all combined into a collage of images – that’s how.

Participants chose the words and photos of things that sparked their imagination about what the waterfront could and should be for them. Share your words and images by emailing the team.

The Lakeview area’s past is one to be reflected upon, cherished and revered. Find out more about it’s rich history, from its early years to the modern day.

A diverse and eclectic history

From early native tribes to French and English settlements to Canada’s first airport and a weapons factory employing mostly women, the Lakeview area’s history is one to be reflected upon, cherished and revered.

With each shift in its composition, the Lakeview area continued to develop and change to reflect the needs of its community. The evolution of Lakeview is rich in history, charm and issues.

The early years and native history

At the time of the first historical contacts with Europeans in the 1600s, the Lakeview area was occupied by an alliance of Iroquois-speaking natives. Their territory included much of southern Ontario from the Niagara River to Windsor to Georgian Bay. The tribes included the Petun, (known as Tobacco) and the Hurons.

These Iroquois-speaking natives were allied to the French. The Six Nations Confederacy were independent, but were allied first to the Dutch and then to the English. These two Iroquois factions were antagonistic towards each other, which mirrored the antagonism of their European trading allies.

In the mid-1600s, the Six Nations Confederacy launched a multi-pronged attack on the northern confederacy and largely eliminated them politically. The Senecas, who were the most westerly-located group of the Six Nations, traditionally from around the Buffalo, New York area, occupied the area. This was around the north shore of Lake Ontario.

In response to this occupation, the Mississaugas tribe, allied to the Iroquois and the French, launched a coordinated invasion of Southern Ontario from their home territory at the north end of Lake Huron. They successfully drove out the Senecas. The Mississaugas was a large group that included the Cree, Ojibwa, Ottawa, Chippewa, Micmac and Algonquians.

Colonization and growth in the 1800s

The Mississauga Purchase was a land purchase treaty in 1806 between the Mississauga Indians and the British government. It included the Lakeview area. This opened up a vast new area for colonization. Soon after, Lakeshore Road and Dundas Road were created to facilitate the new wave of immigrants.

On Lakeshore Road, along each of the rivers, large creeks and cross roads, communities developed. They are today’s Burlington, Bronte, Oakville, Clarkson, Port Credit, Lakeview and Long Branch. During the 1840s, these areas virtually wiped out their forests and turned them into farms. In fact, many street names in Mississauga today carry the family names of these same farmers and land owners.

Evolution from farm to industry

The 1900s brought new challenges to the Lakeview area. At the beginning of the century the area was largely rural with small communities at various crossroads. With the advent of World War One, Lakeview began its shift from a rural economy to a military, industrial and finally a suburban one.

The first airport in Canada was located on the present day grounds of the old Lakeview Generating Station. It was here that pilots were trained for overseas aerial warfare. The Federal government had obtained a large tract of lakefront land in the eastern end of Lakeview that it used during the years for various military purposes including armaments manufacturing, weapons training and military barracks.

During World War Two, the Federal government operated a small arms factory. It produced huge quantities of weapons for use overseas. Given the fact that many of the men were off fighting the war, women were given opportunities to become highly skilled trade people.

The Lakeview area today consists of a largely suburban economy with light industrial along much of the prime lakefront land south of Lakeshore Road.

See the most frequently asked questions surrounding the Inspiration Lakeview project, the Lakeview Local Area Plan Review, and Lakeview Legacy Project.

What is the difference between “Inspiration Lakeview” and the “Lakeview Local Area Plan Review” that began in 2009?

Inspiration Lakeview is focusing on the OPG site and adjacent business employment lands as the main study area. The Lakeview Local Area Plan Review is examining land use policies for the larger Lakeview Planning District which generally extends north to the Queensway, east to the Etobicoke Creek, south to Lake Ontario, and west to Cawthra Road or Seneca Avenue (for lands south of the railway).

How will the “Inspiration Lakeview” and the “Lakeview Local Area Plan Review” relate to each other?

The lands being examined by “Inspiration Lakeview” are a subset of the broader Lakeview Community. The Lakeview Local Area Plan, will recognize the lands as an important component to achieving the vision for the community, however, any new land use designations on the OPG site and Business Employment lands will be determined through the “Inspiration Lakeview” project and associated implementation studies. There are a number of official plan policy issues in the broader Lakeview District that can be addressed now and it is important to continue the planning for this area.

Is there any overlap between “Inspiration Lakeview” and the “Local Area Plan”?

The staff and consultants undertaking “Inspiration Lakeview” are in contact with staff undertaking the Local Area Plan, in order to ensure both processes inform each other. The City will clearly indicate when holding public meetings whether the topic deals with the broader Local Area Plan or the more site specific Inspiration Lakeview properties.

What role does the Provincial government have in this study?

The Honourable Minister of Provincial Parliament, Charles Sousa, who represents Mississauga South, is engaged in the study. He is actively supporting the work that Inspiration Lakeview is carrying out and will continue to assist us in working with the Province of Ontario.

What about the Region of Peel sewage treatment plant?

The sewage treatment plant is an active plant servicing the broader Region of Peel. It is a reality of the site and will need to be considered in the final plan. The Region of Peel is participating in the process and all opportunities and constraints will be reviewed for addressing the plant.

Where does the Lakeview Legacy Project stand?

The Lakeview Legacy Project has excellent guiding principles. We are going to take it further and compliment the Lakeview Legacy Project by developing a more broadly endorsed plan. The community and the Lakeview Legacy Group are working with the City and the consultants. We will build on this energy.
