Due to the increased challenges impacting the quality of life of our residents, in the spring of 2018 we re-instituted the Belfountain Neighbourhood Watch program. The Caledon OPP were instrumental in assisting our start-up. We have captains for most streets and roads, and would like further volunteers to share the communications.
