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.
