Message from the Chair -Fall 2018

Election Year

As this is municipal election year, it is also time for election to the BIA Board of Directors.   The election will take place at the Annual General Meeting to be held on Monday, December 3rd 2018 at 6.30p.m. at the Hampton Inn. See elsewhere in the website for details of the election process and a nomination form.  All members of the BIA are eligible for election and must be nominated by two other members. The Board consists of up to eight members of the BIA as well as the area and regional councilors for the Bolton ward.   The Board will be elected for a four year term which coincides with the term of Council.     

 

Christmas decorations

Watch the downtown for the beautiful new Christmas decorations being arranged by your BIA.

 

Farmers’ Markets and Special Event Days

As promised the Farmers’ Market moved to a new location at the Royal Courtyards. This location offered increased visibility and room for expansion. As well the musicians and other attractions for the four special event days were able to be closer to the market. I believe that the change has been a great success and has been appreciated by vendors and customers alike. I hope that the Market will continue to expand to its full potential in future years.

 

In closing, I encourage all BIA members to become involved in running the BIA, whether as a Board member, volunteer or attending meetings. The BIA is spending your tax dollars and you deserve a say in how this is to be done.

Farmers’ Markets and Special Event Days

 

As promised the Farmers’ Market moved to a new location at the Royal Courtyards. This location offered increased visibility and room for expansion. As well the musicians and other attractions for the four special event days were able to be closer to the market. I believe that the change has been a great success and has been appreciated by vendors and customers alike. See elsewhere in the website for photographs. We hope to continue to build on the potential of the new location and thanks to the owners of Royal Courtyards for allowing it to happen.

Dissolve the BIA?

 

Yes, there has been a request to the Town to dissolve. After 30 plus years and some controversy, we thought it was time to turn this back to the members at large to see whether the majority of downtown business owners support continuing the BIA. That is all that the request in fact did. It triggered a process whereby the Town sent out notices and canvasses the owners and tenants for their view. The decision has now been released and, by a very narrow margin of votes, the BIA will continue. I would suggest that whoever is on the incoming Board and on the Town of Caledon Council  after the election should be  very mindful of the fact that almost half of downtown business owners clearly said that they want no part of a BIA. The Board should continue to keep costs down and to look for sponsors and other sources to help with those projects and events which benefit our members.

 

Elections

 

This is municipal election year, so as well as voting for your local Caledon councilors there is also an election for BIA Board members. I urge all downtown business owners to become involved. If not ready to be a Board member, at least understand the issues and turn out at the meeting to vote.

 

Thank you, and I wish all our members a successful and profitable Fall.
