The City of Mississauga established the Mississauga Urban Design Advisory Panel in 2007. The role of the Mississauga Urban Design Advisory Panel is to provide professional, objective advice to City staff on matters of design that affect the public realm, architecture, context sensitivity and sustainability along with other matters. The Panel is made up of a number of independent design professionals who volunteer their expertise operating in a peer review capacity, for various development proposals submitted by the Planning and Building Department for approval.
The objective is to create a safe, well-designed city with interesting architecture and a strong downtown core, complemented by communities which retain their own identity, yet contribute to an overall strong city identity.
