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.

   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).
