Mayor's Message

Mayor Steve Pellegrini

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

Summer traffic safety

Now that school is almost out I'd like to remind everyone to be extra careful when driving around the Township as there will be many more children biking, walking and playing outside. We hear from residents that traffic safety is a top concern and we continue to look for ways to make our roads safe as possible with things like traffic calming initiatives. However, it's up to all of us to keep our children—and everyone else on foot or on bikes—safe. Please stay within the speed limit, follow all traffic laws and don't text while driving.

Summer camps

Speaking of school being out, now is the time to register your child for King's amazing Summer Camps.

We have many new and exciting camps in 2023, including Multi-Sport Camp, Just For Kicks Soccer Camp, Dryland Hockey Camp, SR Volleyball, Charlie and the Coding Factory, Roblox Coding Adventure, JR Hunger Games, Can You Dig It: Archeology, Mad Science and The World Is Your Canvas Art Camp just to name a few.

Registration is now open and the easiest way to register is online at

YorkNet’s Expansion Project

To help close the digital divide and provide access to high-speed internet to every corner of the Region, YorkNet is embarking on a large-scale Expansion Project. To help support the Project, YorkNet applied for and received funding from the federal and provincial governments through the Universal Broadband Fund.

Residents may have questions about what this means for them and the timing of when they can expect to have access to high-speed internet. To provide more information, YorkNet is hosting community information sessions.

Residents will hear from YorkNet staff about project plans and have an opportunity to speak with the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the project, Galaxy Fibre.

There will be a community information session in King on June 13 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the King Township Municipal Centre.

Ansnorveldt tree planting

York Region, the Township of King and LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests) marked another milestone in their partnership to increase tree cover in York Region.

On May 16, LEAF and King were joined by 50 community members to plant over 250 native trees and shrubs in Ansnorveldt Park. Together, volunteers and staff converted land that was previously covered by turf, and of limited biodiversity value, into viable habitat for birds, pollinators and other wildlife.

The event was also an opportunity to celebrate the collective efforts of the Township, the Region and LEAF to grow the urban forest canopy in York Region. Additional funding and in-kind support for this event was provided by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA).

Lloydtown-Aurora Road improvements

York Region is making improvements to Lloydtown-Aurora Road from Jane Street to Dufferin Street.

Road improvements include the removal and replacement of the asphalt road surface, the installation of a larger culvert (which will allow streams and wildlife to pass freely under the road and the installation) and the removal and replacement of guide rails that provide a barrier between the roadway and potentially hazardous situations.

The road work will take place from early June to mid-August on weekdays and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Lane restrictions will be required to complete the road improvements.

The road closure to facilitate the culvert replacement will take place from July 4, to August 12. Traffic, including emergency vehicles, will not be able to travel through the work zone during the road closure. Commuter traffic will be detoured to other Regional roads, such as King Road and Davis Drive. Local traffic is permitted.

As with all construction projects, work may be rescheduled due to weather. York Region will provide advance notice where possible.
