BACKGROUND:

February 26, 2019 -- The TOPCA Executive is surprised and disappointed with the City’s announcement that, effective March 2019, the City of Mississauga’s Planning and Development Committee (PDC) meetings will move to a permanent 1:30 pm start time (from the current 6:30 pm evening time slot), as the result of an in camera Council vote.  No public input was sought.  Evening sessions will be added "only in special circumstances".
