2019 Belfountain Community Christmas Potluck, etc.,

 

 

Posted in Events | Leave a comment

The Hallowe’en merrymaking on October 31st was extraordinary!

A Hallowe’en party was held at the Community Hall before the children went Trick or Treating. Inside the hall was a myriad of games and crafts, music and food, kids and adults alike donned their favourite costumes and happily enjoyed the event.

The hamlet was alight with carved pumpkin faces, coloured lights and smoky home exteriors. Ghosts and goblins swayed through tree branches reaching out to those who dared to enter.

It was great fun for the children of Belfountain and hopefully the adults too.

As we did the walk about, it became very clear that many people went above and beyond to celebrate this ghoulish night. We would like to thank everyone for their wonderful pumpkin carvings and amazing decorated exteriors.

Prizes for 2019 Hallowe’en Decorating Contest go to:

The Spookiest House -Mark Heaton & Abigail Campbell

Creative Effort- Marcia and Greg Haywood

Most Creative Pumpkins- Ali and Jake Hurley  

Thank you, Higher Ground Café, for supporting this spooky night. A big thank you also goes to the Community Organizers of this activity and the Town of Caledon.

Tell Us What You Think – Signage, Speed and Roads in Belfountain

Thank you to everyone who attended our Signage, Speed and Roads in Belfountain meeting.   For those that were unable to attend, we would like to provide you with this information and ask that you please complete the survey so your views are known.

The 5-year Regional moratorium on road review for Belfountain proper is about to expire in the spring of 2020.

Residents need to start thinking about what you want the roads to look like in Belfountain and what the feel of the community will be for the future.

Past discussions with the Region have included such issues as, parking on one side of the road only, no parking in the hamlet, sidewalks and curbs on one side of the road from the community hall to the conservation area, more streetlights in the commons area, differentiated road designs denoting the road crossing area at the stop signs. All of these options have been discussed with the Region of Peel, none have been implemented.

 As part of the Road Review in 2014, an environmental assessment was conducted, which identified sensitive habitat for many endangered/at risk species. The BCO filed a Part II order to prevent destruction of habitat for the sake of sidewalks and urban standardization. The Region had planned to install sidewalks and curbs in the hamlet. This would have required appropriation of property frontage and tree felling along Old Main Street and Forks of the Credit Road to the entrance of the conservation area.  Neither of these actions was amenable to the board, so with support of legal counsel, a 5-year moratorium was declared on road reconstruction in the hamlet.

New discussions will begin with the Region in the Spring. We need you to invest in the process. Please watch for online postings and public meeting notices.

Please complete the survey found at this link Signage, Speed and Roads In Belfountain Survey  the results will be compiled for the discussions with the Region of Peel

Thank you

Belfountain Community Organization
