Message from the Chair
Special Event Saturdays
Participation and enthusiasm continues to grow for the Special Event Saturdays. The final event of this year takes place on Saturday, September 23rd. Featured are local entertainers, arts and crafts and fun activities for the children.These events are an excellent alternative to events run in the past given the expense and restrictions on downtown road closures. Downtown business owners are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to showcase your products.
Halloween Window Displays
The BIA is running a contest for the best Halloween Window.This is another way to promote your business and have some fun at the same time. Watch for flyers and more information on this website.
The Board has decided to make preparations for a move of the Farmer’s Market to the Courtyards. We think that the location offers good exposure as well as room for expansion and to attract more vendors. We thank Oleg Rudnitsky and the Courtyards management for generously offering this space.
Budget and Annual General Meeting
As we move into Fall we will begin the process of developing a budget for next year. The proposed budget will be discussed at the Annual General Meeting on November 13th in the evening. Further details to follow.

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.
