October 2022


Mayor's Message

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

King Township is currently reviewing its urban design guidelines and we’re looking for input from the public at a pair of virtual open houses.

The draft Village Urban Design Guidelines—which apply to the villages of King City, Nobleton and Schomberg—are now available to review at our online engagement platform SpeaKing.

The guidelines focus on three areas within each of the villages:

  • Village centres
  • Established neighbourhoods
  • Employment areas

Two virtual public open houses are being held to provide the public with multiple ways to attend. Please use the links below to register for an open house. You must register to participate. The same material will be presented at each open house so you only need to register to attend one of them.

Oct. 4, 2022 | 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Oct. 5, 2022 | 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

If you have any questions or need more information, contact Aloma Dreher, Senior Policy Planner at or (905) 833-5321, extension 1004.

Fall program registration

Get active this Fall! King Township offers a wide range of programs for all ages and interests.

Some of the programs being offered include Archery Adventures, guided mountain biking, Nordic hiking, line dancing, playball multi-sport, Jr. NBA basketball, life/figure drawing and much more. There are programs for all ages and interests. Program registration opens Tuesday, Sept. 6. Visit for details.

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

Take advantage of King's free battery recycling program

All batteries are sorted by type (alkaline, lithium, etc.) and recycled for their respective elements (metal, zinc, manganese, etc.). All standard single-use batteries are accepted, including AA, D, 9V, button cell, etc. Rechargeable batteries are not currently accepted.

Batteries contain heavy metals and other toxic chemicals, which mean they have traditionally been handled as toxic waste. Recycling these materials allows them to be reused or disposed of properly, which keeps them out of landfill. The Township's new battery recycling bins allow you to conveniently dispose of your used batteries, while doing your part to help protect our environment.

For safety purposes, please place leaking batteries in a sealed plastic bag, and cover the terminals of lithium batteries with tape before dropping them off in the bins.

Drop Off Locations:

  • Dr. William Laceby Nobleton Community Centre and Arena - 15 Old King Road, Nobleton
  • King Heritage & Cultural Centre - 2920 King Road, King City
  • King Township Municipal Centre - 2585 King Road, King City
  • Trisan Centre - 25 Dillane Drive, Schomberg
