Welcome to the official website of the Lakeview Ratepayers’ Association!
The Lakeview Ratepayers’ Association (LRA) is the municipally recognized residents’ association for the community of Lakeview in southeast Mississauga. The boundaries of the LRA stretch north to Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), south to Lake Ontario, east to Dixie Road and Etobicoke Creek and west to Cawthra Road and the Adamson Estate.
Our objective is to protect, promote and further the interests of the residents of Lakeview through participation in municipal initiatives impacting residents, as well as providing a voice to the community in all matters of local developments.
Lakeview is different than her two sisters in the Lakeshore Corridor, Port Credit and Clarkson. Overlooked, overworked and sometimes maligned, Lakeview is a rich source of history and pride, dating back to its roots as a small-arms munitions producer during World War I.
Today, Lakeview carries its weight and then some. Our local water treatment plant processes 70 per cent of our region’s wastewater, supplies two-thirds of Peel’s drinking water and 40 per cent of York Region’s and earns Peel Region millions of dollars in revenue. Lakeview has fought diligently for years to promote smart development and smart growth, culminating in the Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan that will see dozens of new businesses, stores, facilities and housing developments come to the community. We support the city in its fight for smart planning and the primacy of municipal planning over uncontrolled OMB appeals.
Lakeview residents don’t want to see a “condo alley” built on Lakeshore Road. They want graduated appropriate development off the Lakeshore – development that celebrates the land, the sky and the water. We’re not anti-development. We are pro-smart growth, and we are proponents of a more visionary style planning policy.
