The permit is scheduled until April 30, but may be extended.

Watercolours Neighbourhood Watch

November 28, 2012
Time: 07:00 PM - 09:00 PM
Location: St. Luke School

Please join us for an LPWRA Safety and Security Meeting.  Members from Crime Prevention Services, a member from the Peel Police 11th Division Break and Enter Unit and the Community Liaison Officer will be in attendance. Ms. Wakefield, the Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator will also be attending.

The Police will provide us with a Safety Workshop and take time to answer questions from the community.  In addition, we will hear from the Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator.  

MerlotCourtRailAccessWatercolours residents have expressed a serious safety concern regarding the routine shortcut that teens have been making across the train tracks which poses a serious safety risk to them.  The area in question is at the southwest end of the community.   Recently LPWRA Executive Committee members met with officials from the City  and the CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) committee.  The purpose of this meeting was to follow up on the CPTED's recommendations as they too are concerned that with the speed of the trains on 3 tracks that someone is going to get seriously injured or killed.

When the LPWRA approached the CPTED to draw attention to this issue, they concluded that the illegal crossing was a significant risk.  

As a result we are pleased to announce that despite CN & CP refusing to share costs the City has agreed to implement all of CPTED's recommendations.  The City has committed to the following:

As a result of the reported sightings of coyotes and the unfortunate loss of pets in our community, the City of Mississauga will be posting warning signs at the pond. 

Foxes and coyotes are a necessary and important part of our City's ecosystem.  In the last few years a mange pandemic has drastically reduced coyote and fox populations throughout Ontario and as a result rodent and rabbit populations have increased dramatically.Recently, however, sightings of both foxes and coyotes have increased in Mississauga which indicates that they are making their natural comeback.   As winter approaches natural prey such as mice and rabbits become scarce which means both coyotes and foxes must increase their hunting activity.   Although, coyotes or foxes do not normally pose a risk to humans, coyotes will attack or prey upon unattended, unleashed or outdoor pets.

CAN COYOTES OR FOXES BE TRAPPED AND RELOCATED?
