Its an exciting time in Caledon. Our little farming town is growing with every week that passes by. From new restaurants and shops, to a wealth of new residents that have discovered the benefits and joys 2017 Caledon has to offer as a place to call home and raise their families.
2017 Caledon is on the verge of some exciting growth. The south west area of our border, as well as the Bolton area are set to attract many more families and businesses over the next many years. Of course with this comes with some interesting challenges. We have a high aging population and lack of a public transportation system which often leaves our high need individuals, as well as our younger population with their hands in the air. This is where our beloved Caledon Community Services steps in to make sure needs can be met.
On the horizon for our younger population is the design and development of two new skateboard parks. One in Alton and one in Caledon Village. A process that involved the community to step in and have a say in what they should look like. Many engaged skaters and BMX’ers sat down for planning sessions to help create something that is guaranteed to be enjoyed, and thrashed, for many years.
What do you want to see in 2017 Caledon? How do you want to see it grow, evolve and prosper? The Caledon Library and the Caledon Community Services both released surveys towards the end of 2016 that aimed to gather just that information – and we can’t wait to see the learnings there!
