  1. For those who wonder and worry about what’s going to happen to the land around Belfountain, keeping an eye on the ‘Whitebelt Visioning Exercise’ (http://www.caledon.ca/en/townhall/Whitebelt.asp) is recommended. The Whitebelt Visioning Exercise has Town staff expanding the terms of reference of an ongoing study, the GTA West Land Use Study, which was originally intended to identify and protect strategic employment lands along this new 400-series highway.

    The policies of our current provincial government, one not known to pay much heed to those of us who like a village or rural lifestyle, favour ‘community development’ south of Belfountain especially once the West GTA Highway is built across South Caledon, with exits likely at Kennedy and Mississauga Roads. These will not be the kind of charming country villages and hamlets like Belfountain, that have grown up organically and make up the ‘Community of Communities’ that is a much beloved feature of our Townscape. These will be the ‘Brampton North’ urban planner style to be seen currently in Caledon at Valleywood/Mayfield West.

    Worth asking the Mayor and Ward Councillors to tell us more?
