Mayor's Message

On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the August edition of the King Bulletin.

It’s time to mark your calendars for the next big community event in King.

After a two-year hiatus caused by the pandemic, the Holland Marsh Soupfest returns on Saturday, October 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Come enjoy the day and sample hot soups (made from locally grown and harvested fresh produce), browse through different vendors, purchase fresh produce from the Farmers’ Market and don’t forget about the Kids’ Zone. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit

Updated fireworks bylaw

As we mark the Civic holiday on Monday, August 1 I’d like to remind everyone that King recently updated its fireworks bylaw.

Fireworks can only be set off on Canada Day, the Victoria Day holiday and the third day of the Diwali Festival.

We appreciate everyone for respecting the new limits on when fireworks can be set off in the Township.

For more information on the updated bylaw, visit

Major project updates

I’m pleased to report that work continues on many major capital projects, with key transportation, environmental, park and facilities projects being completed and others underway.

Our paving program has seen 1.61 kilometres of the 10th Concession between Queen Street and Highway 9 paved, along with 3.68 kilometres of Woodchoppers Lane.

In Nobleton, road reconstruction includes enhancing sections of the 15th Sideroad and 8th and 10th Concessions. Work on the 15th Sideroad from Highway 27 to 8th Concession Road is substantially complete.

Due to aging infrastructure, the watermain, water services and fire hydrants along Brownsville Court in Schomberg have been replaced. The construction is mostly complete, except for minor work.

Tasca Park in Nobleton is scheduled to receive many new features that were based on community input. These include an off-leash dog area, pump track, pickleball courts, an area for ice skating and permanent washrooms. Tasca Park Phase II is now in the construction phase. Parts of the construction are already complete and ready for public use.

Each of these projects, along with many others currently underway, will make King an even better place to live, work and play.

Please continue to stay safe, volunteer and shop locally as much as you can.

Pollinator Community Art Project

Join 250 King residents and help us create a work of art worth celebrating! Paint a puzzle piece to help us create our Butterfly Puzzle Mural to be hung for all to see at the King Township Municipal Centre.

The project continues all summer until Flight of the Monarch Day on August 21. Puzzle pieces will be available to paint at select community events and at the King Heritage and Cultural Centre, Tuesday- Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Pollinator Community Art Project directly supports the Township of King’s Bee City Certification and Mayors' Monarch Pledge actionable goals. Municipalities participating the Mayors' Monarch Pledge are required to complete a minimum of three actions annually from the National NWF list of 24 actions for municipalities.

One of the actions King has committed to implement for 2022 involves creating the Pollinator Community Art Project. The project aims to engage residents and promote monarch and pollinator conservation as well as cultural awareness and recognition.

King Township Municipal Election 2022

Municipal and School Board Elections October 24, 2022

The King election team is supporting the efforts of the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) to educate constituents and promote VoterLookup in advance of the upcoming municipal elections.

MPAC is responsible for providing a Preliminary List of Electors, which is used by municipalities to create the “Voters’ List” for all municipal and school board elections.

The list is based on information from MPAC’s property assessment database, as well as other data sources, including the Land Registry Office, National Register of Electors, Elections Ontario and Ministry of Government Services.

MPAC created to provide residents with an easy way to confirm and update their information for municipal and school board elections. Eligible voters can confirm or update their information, add additional names to an address, or change their school support for electoral purposes.

By default, property taxes support a municipality’s English public school board. Constituents may be able to change the school board their taxes support if eligible. To learn more, visit
