It's great to hear from you...

now get ready to see some changes in Malton

Dear <<First Name>>,

Earlier this month I sent out a letter to residents in Malton asking for feedback on the arches that cross Airport Rd. It's been great hearing back from so many residents about the arches, and the other various changes you'd like to see in Malton - the flower boxes, "Welcome to Malton" signs, streetlamps, traffic signals and bus service - I'm looking forward to bringing those fixes to your community.

In this newsletter, you'll get more information about some of the projects we're working on in Malton. As always, please feel free to let me know what you'd like for your community - and encourage your neighbours to sign up for my newsletter to do the same.

With thanks,

Carolyn

Airport Road Arches

I have heard from many residents who would like to have the archways that cross Airport Rd. at two locations removed. When the planned traffic light is installed at the intersection of Drew Rd. and Airport Rd., the arches could be removed at the same time at no cost.

For background, the arches were constructed when Cliff Gyles was Ward 5 Councillor. He fundraised from local businesses to have them built and since then they’ve been maintained by the Region of Peel. The marking in the centre is apparently a Masonic symbol. 

So far, most residents have said they'd like to see the arches removed. Others are interested in redesigning them to better represent Malton, with airplanes or maple leaves. Many who have said they would like the arches to remain are concerned that if they're taken down, there will be one less landmark to represent Malton.

What do you think? Is it a good idea to remove the arches? Would you like to see them redesigned? Or should they remain as they are on Airport Rd? Let me know by emailing Carolyn.Parrish@Mississauga.ca or calling 905-896-5500.

Road Resurfacing

This spring, the City of Mississauga will be resurfacing many streets throughout the city. In Malton, expect crews to be out on Goreway Dr. between Nashua Dr. and Woodbine.

It was great meeting with the Malton Carribean Seniors Group this month! Great company and great ideas!

Goreway Bridge Update

Getting traffic moving on Goreway is a primary concern for Malton residents and for me. To keep you up to date on what's happening, construction is scheduled to begin on the Torbram underpass in the coming weeks. There is only one crew at CN Rail that's capable of diverting tracks - which means they can't start construction on Goreway until the project on Torbram is complete.

Construction on the Goreway Bridge has been moved up to Fall 2016, before I took office it was scheduled for 2017.

Other news from Ward 5 and Mississauga
