We are thrilled to announce that “Mississauga Reimagining the Mall” has won a Canadian Institute of Planning (CIP) Award for Planning Excellence in the Planning Healthy Communities category!

The project--led by the City of Mississauga in partnership with Peel Public Health and consultants Gladki Planning Associates, DTAH and urbanMetrics--was a multi-year study that examined land-use policies at mall sites and their surrounding communities in Mississauga. It ensures that any future development will improve the quality and function of the built environment, promote active lifestyles, and support local retail offerings in a mixed-use environment to result in a more affordable, inviting, inclusive, and livable environment for people in Mississauga. The project included extensive community engagement, with each phase of work supported by various engagement activities including workshops, open houses, surveys, and interviews.

“The Mississauga Reimagining the Mall guidelines expanded the approach to evaluate and introduce elements of a healthy community, anchored in comprehensive public and stakeholder engagement, outlining the way planners can assess and lead interventions that enable cities’ healthy communities and the implementation of sustainability goals.”
