On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the December edition of the King Bulletin.
New term of Council
November 21 was a special day in Council chambers as the newly elected members of Council took the declaration of office for the 2022-2026 term.
I look forward to another productive term, working with Council and staff to deliver exceptional services and programs for the residents and businesses of King Township.
Kettleby Road Reconstruction Public Engagement Session
As part of King’s capital works road improvement program, the Township is planning to reconstruct a portion of Kettleby Road between Kettleby Bridge and the eastern limit of the community.
There will be an in-person Public Engagement Session held at Kettleby Anglican Church (292 Kettleby Rd.) on December 6 between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
At the session, staff will describe the project and provide residents with an opportunity to review current design alternatives under consideration, proposed schedules and provide feedback.

To get you into the holiday mood, we have a few festive holiday events coming up.
The first event is the Deck the Trails guided hike at Cold Creek Conservation Area on Saturday, Dec. 3 starting at 10 a.m.
Join staff for a guided hike and help deck the trails with seeds and berries by hanging pinecone bird feeders along the trail. All supplies will be provided. For more information, including how to register, click here.
The second event is the full return of a Main Street Christmas in Schomberg on Saturday, Dec. 3, between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., presented by the Schomberg Village Association, a non-profit organization.
There will be street performers, carollers, children's entertainers, fireside readings, and, of course, Santa Claus.
Santa’s parade starts at 4 p.m. and the evening is brought to a spectacular close with the Farmers' Parade of Lights brought to you by the local farming community with farm equipment driven down Main Street.
Finally, the Nobleton tree lighting happens on Sunday, Dec. 4 between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Nobleton Gazeebo at 8 Sheardown Drive.
