Building a community involves the creation or enhancement of community among individuals within a neighbourhood. Our community involves the gathering of towns, hamlets and rural areas working towards common interests that will benefit and bring prominence to the residents of Malahide Township.
Within Malahide Township our community building and development is apparent from our close knit communities that offer annual events and programs for its community members and surrounding area residents.
The Community & Corporate Services Department is responsible for providing services to its residents including but not limited to
· Issuing building permits
· Managing civic and municipal buildings and properties
· Economic Development &Tourism
· Planning and staging of community events
· Working with community groups and organizations
· Programming of recreation facilities including baseball diamonds
· Maintenance of community halls, meeting rooms and parks
· By-law Enforcement
· Geographic information systems (GIS)
The department strives to provide the best services to our residents through our programs, services and facilities. We are committed to communicating and cooperating with both the public and private sectors to ensure that an effective system of service is achieved.
Due to the recent close calls in Malahide, and not so close calls in area municipalities along with the dry conditions and prospects of rain at a minimum, Malahide is placing a burn ban into effect until environmental conditions change. Environment Canada has also issued an extreme air quality warning in Elgin for the next couple of days that can only be exacerbated by unnecessary burning. Campfires for the purpose of cooking or heating are the ONLY exceptions. These campfires MUST be no greater than 24" in diameter, in a non-combustible container, and attended at all times with a source of extinguishment nearby.
