As we reach the mid point of a very hot summer, two of our monthly special events have now happened. As with anything new like this, it takes time to catch on and for people to come to appreciate the advantages. We need two things: our member retailers and service providers to participate by offering specials and attractions to bring people to the downtown and the public to get to know what is on offer. There is always going to be negativity following change and, in this case, the negativity comes for the most part from those with no financial involvement and not from our members who are paying for whatever events are planned. And no, the Town of Caledon does not contribute!
The next monthly event will be on Saturday, August 27th following the Farmers’ Market. How will you contribute this time? Stores can benefit from specials and sidewalk sales. Restaurants likewise can offer special deals to attract customers. These events are to promote business in downtown Bolton but we need your help.
Please contact us at email@example.com to let us know so we can include you in our promotion.
On another note, World Suicide Prevention Day is on September 10th. Anyone who wishes to help publicise this day can obtain materials from Nick Croll of the OPP at Nicholas.Croll@OPP.ca
Thank you and enjoy the rest of the summer.

At the King Street and Queen Street intersection in downtown Bolton, turning trucks often went over boulevards and sidewalks, due to a shortage of space, creating safety concerns for pedestrians. As a result of this a restriction prohibiting trucks from turning at the intersection was implemented.
The turn restrictions will remain in place to prevent local delivery vehicles (local deliveries and collections trucks are not permitted to turn at the intersection but are exempt from heavy truck restrictions if the location cannot be reached by any other road and provided that the route taken is the shortest possible to and from the location on the truck restricted route) from turning at King Street and Queen Street.
