From the Regional Municipality of Halton:
Halton Region has been engaged in discussions initiated by the City of Mississauga to explore a municipal boundary realignment. The proposed realignment would move the current Ninth Line (Regional Road No. 13) municipal boundary between the Town of Milton and City of Mississauga westward to the 407 Highway.
Staff from Halton Region, the Town of Milton, the City of Mississauga and Peel Region have all been involved in discussions proposing the municipal boundary realignment which would result in the annexation of land to the City of Mississauga and Peel Region from the Town of Milton and Halton Region.
The area affected by this proposed municipal boundary realignment is known as the “Ninth Line Corridor” and the annexation lands lie between Highway 407 to the west and Ninth Line to the east, the Highway 407 / 403 interchange to the south and Highway 401 to the north (see map above).
According to a report in the Milton Canadian Champion, the Town of Milton and Halton Region should receive a combined $3.3 million if the annexation by the City of Mississauga and Peel Region is approved. From those funds, the Town could get $2 million and Halton about $1.29 million as compensation for the future loss of property taxes being paid by existing property owners in the east Milton area to be annexed.
If all four municipalities accept the dollar figure, the next step will be for them to approve the political boundary realignment, which municipal staff hope to have in place by the beginning of 2010.
Public Information Session
A joint public meeting with the Town of Milton, City of Mississauga, Peel Region and Halton Region will be held on September 30, 2009 to provide an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the draft restructuring proposal for the proposed municipal boundary realignment.
