Additional Parking

Staff report at Oct. 21 Council recommends  a contractor to execute plans for additional parking at both the Municipal Centre and the Heritage & Cultural Centre.  As the need for expanding the parking at the former has been well demonstrated I think everyone will be happy to see the contract being made.  Unfortunately I believe some trees will need to be cut down to create the space at the Municipal Centre.  At our Council meeting I will confirm this, and if so will also inquire about tree replacement/compensation.

CDS: expansion and protection of heritage

Monday November 4th there will be a public meeting to address a zoning bylaw amendment application by Country Day School.  I am very interested in the plan as it involves the original school house of CDS; and I am happy to see that the old school is being very respected as CDS plans for expansion.  Here is more information.

Advance Voting Has Begun!

Advance voting for the Federal election has started.  Runs every day 9-9 for four days:  Friday, Oct. 11 through to and including Monday, Oct. 14.  If you are informed and know for whom you want to vote why not do so this weekend to avoid the rush on Oct. 21?  If you are still in research mode you may be interested to view the videos of the 2 debates which Concerned Citizens of King Township hosted; at time of writing the video for the Oct. 19 was uploaded and available for viewing.  I anticipate they will upload the second one held Oct. 10.  As noted on the CCKT website not all candidates participated in the events.

October 19: lots to do in King City

There is something for everyone Saturday, Oct. 19 in King City.

8-12 at the Municipal Centre there is the indoor garage sale!  Perhaps a unique gift can be found there.

11-3 at the Heritage and Cultural Centre there is a Heritage Harvest celebration.  As identified in the poster there are many things happening:  Holland Marsh Food market, music, kids’ activities to name a few.  Plus, the Walter Rollings school room is being re-opened.

1-2:30 there is the TRCA guided walk leaving from Kettle Lake Park as I have mentioned in another post.

2 pm at Hogan’s Inn there is a talk about the The Story of Joker’s Hill hosted by King Township Historical Society.  Its wise to purchase tickets in advance as I expect this event will be well attended.

Nature Walk with TRCA Saturday 10/19

Saturday Oct. 19th 1-2:30 pm there is a walk guided by TRCA leaving from Kettle Lake Park (south of King Road/east of Burns).  This is a wonderful way to experience and learn about the natural heritage in King City.  TRCA requests that you let them know of you intent to join the walk as there is a limitation on numbers. I am planning to take advantage of this opportunity.  More details here.
