Regional Hospital Infrastructure Plan for Halton and Peel
 

Joe McReynolds, Chair; Steve Isaak, Executive Director and Scott McLeod, Director of Planning from the Halton-Peel District Health Council presented the highlights of the Regional Hospital Infrastructure Plan for Halton and Peel to the Members of Regional Council. The Plan provides a framework for redevelopment in Halton-Peel to accommodate anticipated population growth and aging. The Plan provides a guide for short, medium and long term development and a context within which the more detailed planning of specific services and individual sites can take place.

As a result of the discussion, Regional Council approved a resolution regarding the impact of growth on housing, policing and human services and reinstating the Peel Health Network to ensure that the health care needs of Peel residents are being met and planned for in the future.

News Release

 

What's New with West Nile?

Regional Council approved the West Nile Virus Prevention and Control Plan 2003 presented by Dr. David McKeown, Peel Medical Officer of Health at the February 27, 2003 General Committee Meeting.

The West Nile Virus Prevention and Control Plan 2003 provides for public education, viral surveillance, and measures to control larva of the most common mosquito species involved in West Nile Virus transmission. Larval control measures will include habitat modification and elimination, and application of larvicides to significant breeding sites which cannot be eliminated or controlled by other means.

 Public Works
Front-End Financing Arrangement for the Construction of Fletchers Creek Sub-Trunk Sanitary Sewer, Project 06-2145 - City of Brampton, Wards 4 and 6 and City of Mississauga, Ward 6
 

Regional Council authorized the Region of Peel to finalize and execute a front-end financing agreement between the Region of Peel and the Brampton Heights Landowners Group for the construction of the Fletchers Creek Sub-Trunk Sanitary Sewer, from north limit of Fieldrun Development along an easement to 2nd Line West and along 2nd Line West to Ray Lawson Boulevard.

The Region will benefit by entering into a front-end financing agreement with the Brampton Heights Landowners Group because the agreement will allow for the early decommissioning of the existing 2nd Line West Pumping Station 3 years ahead of schedule and save the Region an annual cost of maintenance and operation of approximately $45,000. With the decommissioning of the facility, the potential environmental damage that may result from an overflow can be avoided.
