Burlington to close road ahead of endangered salamander crossings

Burlington to close road ahead of endangered salamander crossings

A similar road closure of Olde Baseline Road has been done in the past to protect the migration turtles.

Our Jefferson Salamanders are throughout the Belfountain area and the land south of the Community Hall.

Traffic in Belfountain

To the Residents of Belfountain

On January 26, 2017, The West Caledon Visitor Traffic Management Committee met to discuss the impact that the many tourists who visit or pass through Belfountain have on our community during peak seasons.
The committee heard from business owners that they rely on these busy weekends, especially during autumn colour season, for the bulk of their annual revenue.

Residents are concerned that their voice regarding this traffic/tourism issue be addressed as well. One item was addressed at the January meeting. We heard that some residents have had their driveways blocked by tourists’ cars. The O.P.P. have indicated that they will ticket and tow these vehicles if there is a complaint.

If you have other concerns that you would like the committee to address, and/or if you have ideas that would help mitigate any negative effects of peak season traffic in the village, these too will be shared with the committee at the next meeting. We need your feedback in order to address the issues.

This is your opportunity to have a voice. We are striving to balance resident needs with those of the businesses through a collaboration for our mutual benefit.

We would appreciate any feedback you can provide and we thank you in advance for your concern.
