A Personal Thank You from Councillor Stephen Dasko

I would like to sincerely thank everyone who was able to participate in my Speakers Series session on Thursday, April 22, 2021.  As well, I would like to thank the Speakers for their excellent presentations.  The topics granted, are complicated and challenging.  It was for these reasons, I wanted to share with you the understanding of the various Planning processes.
My intent on hosting these Speakers Series is to provide an opportunity for everyone across the Ward to be brought up to date, have your input, and address concerns on the various topics in each session.
Click here to view the PowerPoint presentation from all three (3) Speakers, which I hope you will take the time to review.  Any questions, concerns etc., please don’t hesitate to let me know.
Additional Speakers Series sessions will be forthcoming, and I hope you will be able to join me.
Thank you again.

Provide Your Input on the Development of the City’s Urban Agriculture Strategy

Provide Your Input on the Development of the City’s Urban Agriculture Strategy

The City of Mississauga is looking for input on the development of an Urban Agriculture Strategy through an online survey launching today. The strategy will help identify the City’s role in supporting efforts to increase urban-scale food production across Mississauga.

Urban agriculture is the practice of growing, processing, sharing and distributing food within the city. Examples of urban agriculture can include growing fruits, herbs and vegetables, nurturing pollinator habitats and selling artisanal products.

The strategy will help Mississauga mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change by enhancing community-level resilience and preparedness. It will also provide opportunities for the City to encourage healthier lifestyles, empower residents to learn new skills about growing and harvesting produce and support local businesses to develop ties to urban agriculture.

Toronto Golf Club Message

Email from the Toronto Golf Club to OHHA President …

Good morning Tonya,

I just wanted to provide you with an update on winter access to The Toronto Golf Club so you can advise the OHHA members…

As you know, access to the Club property remains closed from Monday to Friday for the month of February due to course tree work and construction that is ongoing. The length of this closure will depend on weather conditions (ground frost) and how the work progresses.

Beginning this weekend, only local pedestrians will be allowed access to the grounds for the weekends. No public vehicles will be permitted to enter the property from Dixie Road.

Due to the overwhelming number of vehicles that have been coming into the property over the past two weekends, we have no choice but to restrict public vehicular access for safety purposes. Our main entrance is our fire route and we feel emergency access is being restricted with the large number of vehicles that are parked on the entrance route and surrounding area.

Thank you for sharing this announcement with your members!

Take care,
John G.
