Mississauga has a plan. A BIG plan. This plan is called the "Official Plan" and it basically details what the City has planned for it's land. What does that mean? Well, in this plan, it outlines what each and every bit of land will be used for – example: Retail space, condo's, industrial uses, etc.
Earlier today I was actually looking at the official plan for the neighborhood of Churchill Meadow – which I am sure most of you are aware of. Churchill Meadow is located between Winston Churchill and Ninth Line, Eglinton to the south, and Britannia to the north. This area has seen huge development – not long ago it was all farm land and today, homes!
Sometimes you come across a parcel of land that is just sitting there. Most of the time people wonder if it will ever be used for something. In an earlier post, I was speaking about a large parcel of land on the south-east corner of Ninth Line and Eglinton which will be used for commercial and retail
The area I want to speak about today is the south-west corner of Tenth Line and Thomas Street. For those of you are aren't too sure, here's a screenie and a map of the area in question:

Within the Official Plan itself, this area has been designated for "High Density Residential" – are more town-homes on the way? This site sits directly opposite the Great Gulf Homes town-homes site. Does the area need more town-homes? I would love to hear people's opinions and views.
