Construction Coming To Malton!

This year is another big one for Malton!

This spring, Malton Arena will receive a face lift that it so desperately needs. I am so eager to see how beautiful the murals will look on the outside walls. With a project worth $1.5 million, I know the newly rejuvenated arena will be remarkable!

This spring will also bring new concrete Sound Walls along the backs of Longo Circle, Sigsbee and most of Penny Lane; $1.1 million at the Region's expense! These new walls will make backyards more enjoyable and peaceful.

I have begun fundraising for Canada Day 2016, Malton's very own Santa Clause Parade in December 2016, and a children's playground with gorgeous castles in Wildwood Park!

New signs welcoming folks to the Village of Malton are currently being designed.

Stay tuned!

New Law in Ontario

A new Ontario law came into effect January 1st and we want to make sure you are aware of it! Drivers and cyclists must now stop and yield at pedestrian crossovers and school crossings until the pedestrians and/or crossing guard is completely off the road and safely on the sidewalk. This law does not apply to crosswalks, unless a crossing guard is present. You could recieve up to a $500 fine if you fail to stop and yield.

Stormwater Charge: Council Considering Credit Program

City Council approved a working group to consider a stormwater credit program for residential properties that use stormwater best management practices. The group will report back to Council in the spring of 2016.

If you haven't done so already, property owners can use the Stormwater Charge Estimator to prepare for your first bill.

City Launches ePlans

MiWay Service Changes

MiWay has launched its five year service plan for transit expansion. Below are service changes that are currently in place.

Routes 107, Malton Express: this route is on detour during construction of new transitway stations. The construction is expected to be complete in the coming weeks.
Route 21, Explorer: this route will service Dixie Rd after exiting Dixie Station and will resume current routing at Eglington Ave.
Route 7, Airport: transitway construction is complete and this route will no longer be on detour servicing.

Don't forget, $1 Senior Bus Fare is still in effect for off-peak hours!


Connecting Mississauga With The GTA

Mayor John Tory recently announced plans that will extend the Eglington Crosstown light rail line west from Mount Dennis. This development plan will connect Mississauga's transit regionally and across the GTA.

Making these connections will have substantial benefits for all of Mississauga as it improves transit to the Airport Corporate Centre and Pearson International Airport. Click here to learn more.

Helping Others After Snowfall

The City is asking residents to be a good neighbour by shovelling sidewalks in front of their homes. This aids in the safety of those walking to school, work, appointments or people out for a winter stroll. You could also help out your elderly neighbours, or persons with disabilities, by clearing snow for them. 

For those unable to clear their snow, ask your neighbours or relatives if they could give you a helping hand this winter season.
