    Hello! VICTORIA PARK!!!! As a community and on behalf of my fellow neighbors-.we are thrilled to see Victoria Park on the improvement list for 2023 budget. Please note that this park has the potential to be a staple to this community based on its location, huge land space and most importantly- the peaceful, safe cul-de-sac street. I have communicated with many staff members already regarding this park and would like to be included in as much information as possible. Please advise how and what I may do personally to ensure this park receives the attention it deserves. The opportunity with this park is endless.. please let me know what can be done to make this park all it can be. Dates? Drawings? Anything? Hoping to hear back soon! Thanks again! Sincerely, Grace - resident on Victoria Cres

    Please advise the plans for Southfields village in terms of parks and traffic control.

    Sanjeev Sharda asked about 1 year ago

    Staff has revised the proposed park layout for Southfields Community Park based on the input received through community engagement on Have Your Say Caledon (HYSC) and a revised plan will be posted on HYSC along with the survey results in February 2023. Parks staff are considering including a raised crosswalk as part of the construction of the park due to potential increase in pedestrian activity at the intersection of Sparrowbrook and Dotchson. In addition to the raised crosswalk, Engineering Services will run an All-Way stop warrant analysis for the intersection of Sparrowbrook and Dotchson and assess the speeding along the road.

    The question regarding topsoil was not answered. The Fill-By law is to "support the farming community by the utilization of fill material to improve the agricultural viability of farmlands. Why are trucks with permits from the town containing this topsoil the only trucks that pay this fee? In addition, they pay a tipping fee which in effect is double dipping by the town. Why are these fees in excess of costs incurred by the town and charges by neighboring municipalities?

    forksofthecredit asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for the follow up question. There are many Region of Peel Roads in Caledon used for travel by neighboring cities. The Town fill by-law fee is a Town of Caledon charge for town local services and roads to recover costs. The tipping fee is a Region of Peel facility service charge.   Your question may be referring to the heavy truck use fee.  There are two fees associated with this approval, a load fee (which is a Council approved calculation in the fees bylaw).  This amount is placed in a reserve fund because heavy truck use lessens the lifespan of the town road and these funds assist with major repairs or earlier reconstruction costs.  The second fee is securities.  This amount is based on the total number of anticipated loads.  This amount is held until heavy truck use is completed and road is inspected.  If no damages occur as a direct result from the heavy truck use, then securities are returned to the applicant in full.  If road damage has occurred, the Town draws on the securities for repairs and returns any balance left.

    Why do trucks delivering topsoil to farmers in accordance with the fill bylaw have to pay to use Caledon roads both when delivering and leaving empty when no other truck has to pay? This is in addition to a tipping fee. These fees are not revenue neutral but punative.

    forksofthecredit asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. The by-law is to protect natural features, prevent fill with hazardous materials and manage how residents are affected.

    I clicked on Jan 3 - proposed budget released, and did not get any budget data. Obviously I was too late for the survey ( sorry - I was working on the front lines during the holidays). I hoped to at least see the proposed budget, and how it compared to last year's budget & actuals.
