****************************************************************************************************************  June 9, 2023

   

The CVA had a good meeting last night, conversation is creative, and I believe we all left with some new thoughts. While we were small in numbers, we fully understand that many people were focused on the Caledon Central School BBQ, and rightfully so! 
There is a lot going on in our village over the next few weeks. 
This weekend (starting today, Friday) The Caledon Agricultural Society is proud to bring us the Caledon Fair. CASH AT THE GATE PLEASE!
Here is the link for the events: https://www.caledonfair.ca/fairgrounds-events
 
Many of you know about the looming CBM/St. Mary's/Votorantim quarry. This quarry will have a large impact on our village.Please consider using this link to see the information submitted to the Town of Caledon. https://www.caledon.ca/en/town-services/cbm-caledon.aspx 
 
Take a close look at this link:
 
In there you will find that 95% of the trucks heading to and leaving from the quarry will travel Hwy 10 and across Charleston. Please dig around in the application, it's an eye opener.
Once you have looked at the application, check out the Forks of the Credit Preservation Group page, lots of info: https://www.fcpreservation.ca/
Please consider coming to the meeting in Alton at the Legion for an update on Wed June 14th at 7 pm  Please use this link to RSVP https://www.fcpreservation.ca/community_update_meeting_20230614
 
The Town of Caledon Council and reps from CBM need to see that the public is taking notice, so please attend this.
A Public Meeting is scheduled for June 20, 2023 | Meeting start time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Caledon East Community Complex - Hall A and B. 6215 Old Church Road, Caledon, ON L7C 1J7.
 
This will be one of the very few occasions where the public will be able to ask questions. 
 
The CVA is taking a break for July and August, but for monthly meetings only. In the event something comes up, we will most certainly let you know and we will call a meeting to update. Once September arrives, it will be time to start thinking about the Tree Lighting! Yes, the Tree Lighting! If you would like to be involved, we would appreciate the help!
So, we are not closed, we are just taking a meeting break. As always, if we can help, we will. If it's just a question of who to ask, we will attempt to direct you. As always, issues to do with the town should be directed to Councillor Lynn Kiernan and issues with the Region should be directed to Councillor Christina Early.
 
I will be continuing the traffic surveys, if you can help, please let me know!
 
 
Enjoy the Caledon Fair, the Caledon Agricultural Society puts immense time and effort into providing a great time right here in our amazing village.
 
Kate

Reiterated that if we need anything she is “our go to person”.

Encouraged all of our community to participate in the Town of Caledon’s online survey that runs until Feb 15, 2023, “Have your say Caledon”. Kate has already put it on Caledon 2.0 page but will repost.

Alyson will locate all Caledon Village banners and return them to us no matter what condition they are in.

Requested to know if we had anything to contribute to “In The Hills” magazine? Currently council does not have any updates for the magazine.

 

 

Treasurer’s report –(Kate): CVA presently has a bank balance of $11,941.33.

 

CVA Community Issues:

Discussion was had as to the ongoing concerns of Mr. Bill Stubbs snow removal. Ian Sinclair reported that there is to be an upcoming meeting that Kate Hepworth will be involved with as to Town of Caledon snow removal plans for Caledon Village. Mr. Sinclair also commented on the need to question The Town of Caledon on their “level of service” for our village. CVA is going to be more pro-active with concerns to snow, salt contamination etc. on west side of Hwy 10.

 

Jennifer Paschalis:

Concerns as to the ongoing additions to the communication tower on Ag Society grounds, would like to know if tree planting could take place as many trees have been cut down. The communication tower locations are determined by communication companies and landlords. Jennifer is going to attend an Ag Society meeting to continue her conversation. CVA will follow up in the coming weeks.

 

Mike Milne:

Have we considered having a grocery store in the village? As a new resident he feels it would be an asset to the community. Would speed cameras or flashing speed signs help with speeding traffic through the village?

 

Ian Sinclair:

Poses the question “Do you feel safe walking the streets of Caledon Village”?

He suggested we do a survey and “take on our pedestrian system” as an issue that we all face. Do a survey then head towards a Town Hall or Coffee with Councillor’s meeting where all residents could attend and submit or post on a large scale map their areas of concern in the village i.e. Condition of sidewalks, street lighting, safe road crossings and traffic speed.

This was received very well by all and will be taken up in more thorough CVA discussions. We talked about first creating our own “Village Revitalization” survey and move forward from that point.

 

Mauro Testani:

Reminders from Mauro as to Lions Club events:

March 4 Meat Roll at the Alton Legion and April 4 Seniors Dinner.

 

Kate Hepworth:

Should we think about having a Caledon Village Birthday celebration every year in the summer?

We will see what banners Alyson finds and then go from there and decide if we need some new ones and if we would have a contest for designs.

Christmas Tree lighting is Dec 2, 2023, the first Saturday in December.

 

Meeting adjourned at 21:50.

Tree and Snowflake Lighting update: 

Emily Quinton has confirmed that we can get in touch with her, Jason Schildroth and the Town of Caledon Forestry Dept. at the end of Sept/beginning of Oct to re-light the tree and confirm we do not have bald spots. Emily Quinton has informed us that the town is going with a third party contractor (Montgomery) that will be putting up and taking down the snow flakes and banners. They will eventually remove our snowflakes and purchase or rent their own set of snowflakes or wreaths to make all the villages throughout Caledon look similar. Our snowflakes will be taken down in March, they will go up in Nov. We have also been informed that our heritage banners are in rough shape. Waiting for councillors to approve a budget (Feb) then Emily Quinton and Jason Schildroth need to talk to the Region regarding hardware, and then we can have a meeting to discuss what we prefer to have on the poles. Kate will ask residents for their input on what they would like to see on the posts.

 

Treasurer’s report –(Jackie): CVA presently has a bank balance of $12,816.33. One issued cheque is still to be deposited by the recipient, confirmation was received before adjournment that this will be taken care of this week.

 

CVA Community Issues:

Residents who attend the CVA meetings. Here are the issues:

 

Raeburn Corner and sides of the roads near the sidewalk are a mess, garbage everywhere. 

 

Orangeville Banner, Citizen paper and the Enterprise are littered at peoples driveways - it was mentioned to pick up your paper or to call in to cancel but residents want something more strict.

 

It was suggested that someone (residents) to get in touch with an environmental group to help fight against salt and brine.  

 

We regret to inform Ed Taccone that there will not be any representation of CVA at his AGM Meeting this Sat, Jan 14. Their next meeting is Sunday, Feb 12 (instead of Monday to be safer during the winter months) We do however encourage residents to consider joining the Caledon Agricultural Society.

 

Bill has informed us he had a stroke, he brings up concerns regarding snow removal (lack thereof) near his property, the town needs to properly remove snow, the use of pesticides, and exhaust fumes that he can see has killed grass and tress along Hurontario.

Can CVA compose or contact someone for a complaint? Kate will compose a letter, but will share with members prior to sending.

 

Residents would like to have Mayor Annette Groves attend a meeting to have questions answered.

 

James Dick - aggregate has mentioned in the past that they have reports related to air pollution that are public knowledge, CVA would attempt to gain access to those site reports.

 

 

Caledon Agricultural Society has informed us that the bull run area on the fairgrounds is being removed. CVA has asked to replace it with a pollinator garden. CAS wants to add parking once the bull run area is tidied up.Locations for a pollinator garden can be discussed at a later date with CAS. Create a community get together to help CAS remove the old bull run, or other areas Ed Taccone did mention that he has an offer of help to remove the bull run area, however, many hands make light work. Ed also added CAS would like to add a dog run (leash free fenced in area). They are moving forward for a new building where the office trailer is, they will have drawings and site plans complete (not sure when) 

 

Kate to send proposals for possible fundraising ideas for the new building that CVA can help with.

CALEDON VILLAGE ASSOCIATION

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING NOTES

MONDAY, NOVEMBER  21, 2022 AT 7:30 P.M.

                                                                        at Old Caledon Township Hall

 

ATTENDANCE:  Barney Beckett, Kate Hepworth, Karen Sanger, Judy Lewis, Fiorina Neher,  Bill Stubbs, Yves deLisle, Kalon Young, Mauro Testani, Fay McCrea

 

Regrets:  Emily Trzaska

 

Fay welcomed everyone to the meeting. Barney introduced Kalon Young, who has agreed to be our new emcee. He resides in Brampton and attends Mayfield Secondary School, and is in the arts and broadcasting field. He has already got prices from Long and McQuaid for the sound system, which will be battery operated. He will pick it up at his convenience, set it up and then will be making announcements in his vehicle in the parade so the battery system will be great. The CVA will provide him with $50 cheque for his mileage and we will also give him volunteer hours and if he has some friends who can come and help, we will do the same for them.

 

                     1.   Update on Townhouse proposal from Kate

 It has gone to the OLT and will be heard April 3, 2023. CVA has participant status. It is estimated the hearing will be one week and will be on line.

2.   Treasurer’s report – Kate (for Jackie): Jackie provided a complete report with a breakdown of Market and Bicentennial expenses.  CVA presently has a bank balance of $13,093.92. After some discussion, Judy Lewis moved approval of the report, seconded by Yves deLisle. Carried. 

3)  CVA Community Issues we are dealing with: Aggregate, Traffic and Safety – are there other community issues CVA “should” be involved with?

We understand people are not happy with the 4 new homes on former Raeburn property and are not happy with smaller houses being demolished and being replaced with huge homes but neither of these fall under our jurisdiction. All we can do is direct people to the right sources to report their issues. 

Kate stated that the future of Caledon Village is unknown at this time.

 

4)  Market – suggestions.  Do we continue next year, do we start later in the season and end earlier, do we have a market once a month or do we choose another fundraising event? 

Discussions followed regarding the pros and cons of the market and even though it was our first year, it was not that successful and local residents did not support it and unfortunately CVA reputation was tarnished.

Karen shared her ideas for community events being held on the fairgrounds next year. One was a Beer Festival featuring local breweries. Kate said we would have to check with the Town to see if they are still holding Cheers Caledon, but perhaps we could work with them?  Another idea was Battle of the Bands and Movie Nights or even a Blood Donor clinic.  These events could occur mid to late August on Saturdays. We could use our money to put on events for the community. Fiorina suggested we start to plan these events in January, especially if permits are required as they take time.

5) Website: Yves had done a great job in the past and he said he will continue to do some things. Kate reported that Emily will take on the website updates. Thank you, Emily.

6) Donations:  

(i) We had discussed making a donation to the Caledon Agricultural Society for the use of their land for both the market and Bicentennial and for the help of Ed Taccone and Stan Dacres. They put a lot of time and effort into helping us.  It was agreed that we make a donation of $1,000 to the C.A.S.

(ii) The other plan was to make a donation to Caledon Central School. We were thinking of the music department but Mauro said they don’t really like donations for specific departments but would probably welcome a donation for the upgrade of the playground equipment. It was suggested a $500 donation be made.  

(iii)  Don, the antique fire truck driver who will take Santa in the parade and bring him to the parkette.  It was suggested a cheque for $50.

7) By-laws: These need to be updated, including setting of regular dates for monthly meetings and AGM’s. It was agreed that the 2nd Thursday in the month works for most people and the AGM should be in October and the date was set for October 12, 2023.

                        

8) Tree Lighting update:

Bowls and spoons for chilli – Fay will purchase

Sharon Lambert will advise the cost of chili after she shops for ingredients

Optimists are providing hot dogs and hot cider, same amount as last year.

Sue has tickets left over for their raffle for the kids. 

Fay would like the Silent Auction Items ASAP

Need a volunteer to hand out the children’s raffle tickets and stamp their hand. Karen volunteered and Fay will help her. Fay has 150 green and 250 red tickets and the hand stamp so this should speed up things. Judy has purchased 24 items.

Help with set up for raffle and silent auction – Yves offered to help.

Help to close the auction.

Lions and Optimists will set up tents and tables for food. 

Fay has sufficient table cloths for auction tables.

Alyson suggests TOYS to Family Transition Place, Orangeville and FOOD to CCS.

                              

Elections:  Fay McCrea

We are open to nominations for the following positions:

 

President: Fiorina nominated Kate Hepworth* as President. Seconded by Judy Lewis.  Are there any other nominations for this position?  Seeing none, Kate agreed to be our president.

*Kate stepped back as president during the election but agreed to stand for election at this AGM

 

Vice President:  After some discussion Judy nominated Karen Sanger to this position for one year. Seconded by Mauro Testani.  Congratulations Karen.

 

Secretary:  Fay McCrea was nominated to remain in this position, but she declined. 

Judy nominated Fiorina, seconded by Yves deLisle. We do understand that Fiorina is very busy and if she is not available for a meeting, somebody else will have to take minutes.

 

Treasurer:  Jackie Flynn has agreed to continue in this position.

Residents who attend the CVA meetings regularly will be CVA members.  

 

Meeting adjourned at 10:02 p.m.

Alyson Monery, Jason Schildroth Town of Caledon,   Fay McCrea (8:15)

Absent:  Barney Beckett,  EmilyTrzaska, Susan Montgomery, Mauro Testani, Yves Delisle

 

Meeting called to order 7:30      

Alyson spoke extensively on the Caledon Tree Lighting and Parade December 3, 2022.  Gave us useful information on securing permits for Regional, Town and Provincial roads and the cost of each.  She will be instrumental with filling out the paperwork, securing insurance and suggested that there be no walkers in the parade.

  • Fire Department won’t attend without full insurance and a copy of the parade route and permits purchased.
  • O.P.P. – we will need regular off duty officers at $70.00 per hour plus a surcharge attached.
  • Best permit to look into is the Intermittent permit for minor roads such as Charleston S/R
  • Town can attend
  • O.P.P. Response Unit could attend and lead the parade
  • She suggested making the parade available to everyone in the community who would like to decorate their trucks or cars

Fiorina is going to take Alison up on her offer to get this project started to get us in early with all the groups required to make this a go.

 

Jason spoke extensively about the Tree Lighting and the fact that the tree is on Town property and continues to grow.  He stated that the lights on the tree are the responsibility of the CVA but he may be able to help we just need to contact him if a problem arises.

SNOWFLAKES – will be stored and cared for by the Town of Caledon. They will use our current flakes until they need to be replaced and the Town will replace them.  They will also put up and take down as they will do with any banners that the CVA would like to have up or replaced.  Under no circumstances do we replace the bulbs in the snowflakes that is a Town responsibility.

Jason will be sending the CVA a Letter of Understanding putting this in writing for future reference.

He also spoke the new app available Caledon.ca/Reportaproblem a site to report any issues in your area directly to the Service Caledon Team for correction or maintenance.

 

 

 

BICENTENNIAL September 24, 2022

Faye was in attendance and she connected with Alyson and spoke on various items that the Town can provide to help support the Bicentennial and help curtail some of the cost to the CVA.   Faye will be working with Alyson asap to get some of the details ironed out.

  • Town Hall Crier
  • Invitations to Dignitaries
  • Sandhill Pipe & Drums
  • Honor Guard from Fire Department and Sparky, maybe a truck
  • Alyson does all the marketing for the Bicentennial from the Town side
  • Rec Team – staff and volunteers can help with the games and activities to compliment what we have already laid out
  • Caledon Tents – Recreation,  Active Transportation

 

 

 The Caledon Village Association would like to thank Jason Schildroth and Alyson Monery for the positivity and wealth of information they shared. We look forward to a great working relationship!

Caledon Village Association Meeting

 

2. Business arising from the January meeting

 

    2.1  Funding from the Town to offset costs of removal of banners and installation of snowflakes on 12 poles in November has been received. Total invoice from Hogg and Nevills was $1,229.72.  A cheque for $500 was received from the Town in January.  

 

 Other Business:

 

   3.  A cheque was received from the Town in the amount of $1,000 from the  MACG grant that Fay applied for last fall. Did not think we had qualified.

  

   4.  No word on the Community Safety Zone; however close contact with MPP and Solicitor General Sylvia Jones is being maintained in order to keep this project at the forefront.

            Joshua is very interested in traffic calming measures and suggested that the lower speed limits commence further south and further north of where they are now. It suddenly drops from 80 km/hr to 60 km/hr and then 50 km /hr. too suddenly.  He, along with others, push for traffic lights at the Chester/Mistywood intersection on Hwy. 10 as it impossible to get out of both subdivisions.

            Kate said we must keep applying pressure to get this implemented ASAP.

 

  5.   Six Villages: Kate sent a letter to the Mayor and Town staff regarding the status of the Six Villages Project, it appears that some of the previous requests from residents have been included in the Six Villages, however there is a lot not being done. Kate read from a portion of the project that states”  Caledon Village is a safe, pedestrian-friendly and well-connected community. The Village offers a range of different services and commercial uses, which serve the travelling public as well as local residents. The needs of pedestrians are balanced with the needs of vehicular traffic”. They have created an image of a beautiful little village nestled in the hills with a few cars going through. No mention of the hundreds of cars coming from the north or the trucks that are constantly turning at the intersection. The only thing that has been done are the left turn lights which we waited years for.

 

  6.  Recreation Fund – According to Heather Haire,Treasurer, Finance for the Town of Caledon  there is $905,750 sitting in a Recreation fund. What is  the purpose of it?  Why is it there? Where did it come from? How long has it been  accumulating?  Kate will contact Ms. Haire again and ask for a deeper break down of the fund..

 

  7. Logo for CVA plus Bicentennial  (Fay has a contact who created Mono Mills Bicentennial  logo).               

 

  8.  Any other business to discuss?

       Mauro reminded us of the meat roll that the Lions Club is hosting on Feb. 29th. All    welcome

       Peter had photos showing the huge pile of snow that needs to be removed before

       the weather turns mild and the water runs through his basement once again.            Kate

       had also taken photos and she suggested Peter send his photos and she will send

       hers to FuWing Wong, Regional Councillor Ian Sinclair, Area Councillor Lynn                     Kiernan and Mayor Thompson

 

  9.  Next meeting will be March 10th      

 

 10.  Adjournment.

It suddenly drops from 80 km/hr to 60 km/hr and then 50 km /hr. too suddenly.  He, along with others, push for traffic lights at the Chester/Mistywood intersection on Hwy. 10 as it impossible to get out of both subdivisions.

            Kate said we must keep applying pressure to get this implemented ASAP.

 

  5.   Six Villages: Kate sent a letter to the Mayor and Town staff regarding the status of the Six Villages Project, it appears that some of the previous requests from residents have been included in the Six Villages, however there is a lot not being done. Kate read from a portion of the project that states”  Caledon Village is a safe, pedestrian-friendly and well-connected community. The Village offers a range of different services and commercial uses, which serve the travelling public as well as local residents. The needs of pedestrians are balanced with the needs of vehicular traffic”. They have created an image of a beautiful little village nestled in the hills with a few cars going through. No mention of the hundreds of cars coming from the north or the trucks that are constantly turning at the intersection. The only thing that has been done are the left turn lights which we waited years for.

 

  6.  Recreation Fund – According to Heather Haire,Treasurer, Finance for the Town of Caledon  there is $905,750 sitting in a Recreation fund. What is  the purpose of it?  Why is it there? Where did it come from? How long has it been  accumulating?  Kate will contact Ms. Haire again and ask for a deeper break down of the fund..
