The City of Mississauga is making it easier and less costly to register second units as part of its commitment to increasing access to affordable housing. City Council today approved a new By-law that will improve the registration process for second units, also known as basement apartments, in-law suites and secondary units.
The City has repealed the current licensing process and will now require that houses containing a second unit be registered.
Registration is free of charge. Homeowners will no longer need to purchase or renew a license. Existing second unit licence holders will be automatically registered. Continue reading Mississauga Now Making it Easier to Register Second Units
The City of Mississauga’s Encroachment By-law is getting updated with a new, user-friendly process for residents interested in installing and maintaining boulevard gardens on public lands.
“It is wonderful to see a user-friendly process available to residents who are passionate about their gardens,” said Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey. “Our city has so many talented gardeners with great visons that are making our city beautiful.”
Council directed that Works Operations and Maintenance staff review the Encroachment By-law to streamline the installation of boulevard garden encroachments.
“City staff has developed a simpler process for residents wanting to install and maintain boulevard gardens,” said Bob Levesque Acting Director Works Operations and Maintenance. “The current Encroachment By-law prohibits encroachments onto public lands except where a minor encroachment agreement exists. These conditions are not suitable to boulevard gardens. The new process will allow residents to enter into a written agreement for boulevard gardens separate from a formal Encroachment Agreement or Minor Encroachment Agreement. Residents are encouraged to apply for a permit in advance of planting. Staff recommends an administration fee of $50 plus applicable tax for the Boulevard Garden Encroachment Permit.” Continue reading New User-friendly Boulevard Garden Encroachment Permit
