Mississauga-ization & Rainwater Don’t Mix

Mississauga, Ontario might be a well-managed city.  But, as the recent flood shows, it is not a well-designed city.

Concerned citizens of other cities have coined it the “Mississauga-ization” of a city—a subdivision of detached or semi-detached houses or condo towers, four lane streets, massive intersections each with box stores, a strip mall and gas station…REPEAT.

Acres (oh, sorry Pierre) hectares upon hectares of asphalt, concrete, steel, bricks and glass leave rainwater no place to go.

The Mississauga Urban Design Panel needs a flood of practical inspiration to better use the city’s limited landmass.
