Beautification

We work with the community and the city to maintain and enhance the beauty and value of Watercolours.   Initiatives include pond maintenance & aeration, snow clearing of school access paths, landscaping of common areas, installation of ice rink, maintenance of park structures, litter not program, replacement of current street signs to upgraded unique Watercolours signs........and more.

 

If you've walked in our neighbourhood park or walkways, you no doubt noticed paint peeling from our beautiful pergolas.   Over the years, the LPWRA has been working with the City of Mississauga to have these repainted.  In spite of our repeated efforts to have them re-painted they continue to peel.   We wanted to assure you that we have been communicating with city staff on getting them cleaned up and wanted to provide you with an update.

City staff determined that since the pergolas are made of galvanized metal, they did not allow the paint to adhere well.  The city is currently investigating on how to best deal with the pergolas going forward.  They will contact us with their plan and we will keep you informed.

UPDATE (July 31, 2017):  The city has secured a contractor to complete painting on all the pergolas in the park and walkways in Watercolours.     Work is tentatively scheduled to begin mid-August.

 

You may have noticed some fluorescent pink markings on our neighbourhood sidewalks.  We wanted to inform you that today the City of Mississauga inspected the sidewalks in Watercolours. They have marked those in need of repair with pink fluorescent paint. Crews will be scheduled to make the repairs. Should you have any questions or concerns, you can contact the City at 311.

ReplantingUPDATE (March 23, 2015):

INFECTED TREES REMOVED: NOW WHAT?

The Forestry Department has provided us with some more updates now that most, if not all, the tree removal has taken place.

The next step is STUMP REMOVAL. Although this has not yet been scheduled, we've put in the request to have the work order go through.

Next phase is ASSESSMENT. The forestry deparment will inspect the affected areas to determine spacing and which species can be planted.

Final phase is REPLANTING. The forestry department anticipates that many of the replacements will be boulevard sized trees, but this has not been confirmed. While there is no firm date, they speculate planting will begin April 2016.

Given the scope of tree clearing, we are looking for volunteers to act as a liason with the forestry department to keep abreast of the progress and to be given the opportunty to voice our input and/or concerns. This is particularly critical during the stages when tree choices (and sizes) are being evaluated.
