Mayor’s Message
It is my pleasure, on behalf of Uxbridge Township Council and Staff, to present our Spring/Summer 2013 Community Guide. As spring approaches, it brings with it many exciting opportunities to experience all sorts of wonderful recreational activities. Visit our trails and experience the wonder of nature coming alive after a winter sleep. We are very excited about the wide variety of programs that we are presenting to the public. We encourage you to get out and enjoy the activities in the community. It is a wonderful way to become involved in everything that Uxbridge has to offer, as well as meeting new people. I would like to thank the many volunteers who, through their tireless efforts and dedication to our community, are a major reason Uxbridge has such a broad array of well-run and progressive programs. I encourage you to discover all that there is to do in Uxbridge. I believe you will be impressed.

Uxbridge Multi-Use Trails

Come and explore one of our many beautiful trails!
Please see www.town.uxbridge.on.ca for full details and trail maps.
Urban Walking Poles
Available for rent at Uxpool, urban poles add stability, reduce stress on joints and add an increased workout to your trail walk. $5 per day, $10 per weekend, $15 per week.

Countryside Preserve
Visit this 140-acre preserve of rolling hills, woods, streams, ponds and meadowlands, where the countryside meets the town at Conc. 6 and Hwy. 47. With art pedestals, interpretive ecology displays, and over 6 km. of trails, there is something for everyone at the Countryside Preserve! The main entrance is to the South of Walmart.

Countryside Trails
Hundreds of kilometres of trails run through Uxbridge Township including: • East Duffins Headwaters Area • Durham Regional Forest • Oak Ridges Trail • Trans Canada Trail These countryside trails run through natural forested sections of the Township, with great opportunities for hiking, walking, mountain biking, geocaching and horseback riding. Managed by a variety of trail partners, the countryside trails are growing, including new sections of the Trans-Canada Trail, taking it off-road and enhancements to the network of trails connecting right down to the City of Toronto and Lake Ontario.

Join the thousands of people who have caught on to this high-tech treasure hunt activity. Great for families with a sense of adventure! For more details, check out www.geocaching.com.

Is a practical martial art that is a mix of Judo Throws, Karate Strikes, Aikido Joint Locks & Pressure points, as well as ground-fighting techniques.

Therefore, a small person, male or female, with Jiu-Jitsu experience can overcome a much larger attacker making it a very effective form of self-defence in what would be a dangerous situation.

It is an excellent low to non-impact medium for cross training and the most suitable place for recovery and rehabilitation of an injury. Water allows fitness levels to be maintained and can even increase fitness and performance levels for the serious runner! See Uxpool Fitness Schedule for lane or public swim times.

Heritage Uxbridge
Heritage Uxbridge is a committee commissioned by the Uxbridge
Council to act as an advocate for the preservation and conservation of heritage properties in the Township. The committee is made up of dedicated volunteers who carry out a number of on-going responsibilities throughout the year, working with the community and the Township members assisting with and advising in matters related to heritage and cultural aspects. In past years, the committee has developed and organized guided tours, and published articles and maps that help promote Uxbridge’s cultural heritage. Further, the committee continues to maintain a close watch on the Pickering Airport lands, and will endeavour to help protect any properties of historical value found within that area. It also produced a Heritage District Sign By-law to help promote a heritage ‘look’ in the downtown district and continues to recognize individual’s homes of heritage or cultural value through the Pride Plaque Program. The Heritage Sign By-law Guidelines are used as a reference to determine award recipients, and the boundaries include the entire Township. Information about how to receive this award along with ideas on improving building facades, windows and general landscapes in keeping with a heritage appearance, can be found in the Heritage Uxbridge Sign Guidelines at the Township office, or online at http://town.uxbridge.on.ca/heritage. A few years ago, an award called the ‘Heritage Appreciation Award’ was established by the committee to recognize those individuals “for taking the initiative and action to preserve our past”. Several local businesses, including Rutledge Jewellers and the Tin Mill, have received this award. This year we will continue to award local area Heritage Farms. If you would like more information about this committee or have any questions about Heritage Uxbridge, please contact Pat Mikuse at prmikuse@sympatico.ca or Robin Coombs at rcoombs@powergate.ca

Uxpool now has a new Universal change room suitable for families and special needs visitors. This co-ed change room has four individual changing areas suitable for families or support staff. No public nudity is allowed in this room.



Unsure what level your child is in? Uxpool offers free level assessments during any public swim to accurately tell you what swimming level you should register your child in. Uxpool offers the Red Cross Program featuring a preschool and Swim Kids program for all ages.

Patrons using the facilities should not leave ANY valuables in the change rooms. You may bring your own lock for your locker for the duration of your swim.



A thorough shower before you enter the pool will help keep the water clean for your swimming enjoyment.

"Admission Standards for Public Pools" were developed by the Office of the Coroner of Ontario to assist Lifeguards and Assistant Lifeguards in maintaining adequate surveillance over the whereabouts and the activities of young bathers while they are inside the pool enclosure. The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care strongly supports these recommendations for the purpose of preventing injuries and fatalities. 1. Children 5 years of age and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 12 years of age or older. The parent or guardian is responsible for their direct supervision and must be in the water and within arm’s reach of the child(ren) at all times. 2. Children 6 to 9 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 12 years of age or older. The parent or guardian is responsible for direct supervision & must be in the water. If the child can swim and pass a facility swim test, the parent or guardian does not have to remain within arm’s reach of the child, however, must remain in the pool enclosure to provide supervision of the children and remain in visual contact. 3. Children 10 years and older may swim without adult accompaniment.


Strollers are not permitted in the change rooms or on deck. If you require one, please ask at the office and one will be provided for you (limited strollers available)


Food and beverages are NOT permitted on the pool deck or in the change rooms. The only exception made is non breakable water bottles.


We ask that disposable diapers are not worn into the swimming pool. We request that those not toilet trained wear a swim diaper (that can be purchased at your local drug store) or snug fitting plastic pants under their bathing suit.



SHALLOW: Swimmers must be able to swim one (1) width . Completed Swim Kids 3 or equivalent. DEEP END:To swim in the deep end, swimmers must be able to swim two (2) widths or one (1) length of the pool successfully

The pool may close at an inopportune time due to a pool fouling, power failure, or mechanical/maintenance problem. When this occurs, instructors will use the time to focus on water safety components of instructional programs. Cancelled lessons cannot be made up and swim tickets will be issued.


A family rate is defined as IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS (mother, father, children, step parents/children) living in the same household.


Please book groups well in advance with a supervisor to ensure there is adequate staff. Entrance to public swim is on a first come first serve basis; please arrive early to ensure your group gets in together. Admittance policy must be adhered to.


The senior rate is for people who are 60 years of age or older. Proof of age may be required.

Parents should be aware that the Child & Family Service Act requires that any suspicion of child abuse be reported immediately to the Children’s Aid Society.

The Music Hall
It was an exciting night in December 1901 when the beautiful new meeting and concert hall on Main Street South had its gala opening, rising from the ashes of the original hall built in the 1860s. Over the ensuing decades, the Music Hall has played host to raucous political meetings and joyous weddings, thunderous rock concerts and dramatic moments when you could hear the quietest birds in the trees outside. Some of the greatest names in the performing arts, from guitarist Liona Boyd to actress Rachel McAdams, have enjoyed the Hall's fine acoustics and classic ambience. Like many of the Township's halls, the Music Hall is overseen by a dedicated community advisory board. With its guidance, over the last 15 years significant improvements have made to the Hall's lobby, dressing rooms, audience areas and in particular its technical features: state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment, projector and screen, even a beautiful period chandelier which raises and lowers according to the user's needs. The Hall is busy with community theatre productions, concerts, dance classes and recitals, and a wide variety of public events. But there's always room for you! If you'd like to hold your event in a historic, beautiful intimate space which still has all the bells and whistles, call the Township's bookings manager, Karen Ryl, at 905-852-6761, and she'll set up a meeting with the Hall's technical manager. Enjoy! Here are a few of the outstanding entertainment groups that regularly appear at the Music Hall. On Stage Uxbridge presents: Blithe Spirit April 4-13 www.onstageuxbridge.com UXPERIENCE 2013 presents “Let the Games Begin” with Uxperience May 2013 Come out and enjoy a great show that raises money for local groups.

The Foster Memorial is located:
4 km north of Uxbridge on Durham 1 (Conc. 7) on the east side of the road. 9449 Regional Rd # 1, Uxbridge The Thomas Foster Memorial was built for $250,000 in 1936 on a hill in the countryside of Uxbridge Township. The Taj Mahal inspired its structure, which is just outside of Agra, India. The roof surfaces are copper tile, and the entrance doors, windows, tracery and all metal parts are bronze. The beautiful stained glass windows are the work of Yvonne Williams, and are of hand-painted, fired and leaded glass, the colour and designs are harmonious and are distributed so as to flood the interior with soft, colourful light.The 22k gold mosaics with multi colours give elegance to this magnificent building. The floors are of rich coloured terrazzo and marble mosaics, wrought in symbolic designs. On entering, one crosses the River of Oaths on which floats water lilies and lily pads. In the general design of the floor beneath the great dome, the motion, typifying life, radiates from the Greek letters “Alpha and Omega” which in turn flank the “Chi Rho” monogram in its early Byzantine form, the Laurel wreath of victory over death encircles the centre motif. Above, the drum of the dome is pierced with 12 stained glass, leaded windows in the form of a gold cross. Circling the lower part of the dome, above the great arches in gold lettering on a field of graded blue mosaic is the inscription… ‘Take this my body for it is done and I have gained a new life, glorious and eternal’

What is Road Watch? A community initiative designed to improve road safety by creating greater awareness and giving residents an opportunity to participate in identifying and reporting dangerous and aggressive driving in the Township of Uxbridge. Why have Road Watch? To help reduce Motor Vehicle Collisions and potential injuries and fatalities in the Township of Uxbridge. What is Aggressive Driving? Aggressive driving is defined as excessive speeding, tail- gating, failure to stop and any other unsafe driving that puts others at high risk for collision or injury. How does Road Watch work? Citizen Report Forms may be used any time you observe an act of aggressive driving. Record as much information as you can about the particular aggressive driving incident that you witnessed. This information will help the police in monitoring high risk areas in our community. To complete the report, include the licence number, the make and colour of the vehicle, the location (as exact as possible) and the nature of the incident. When you send in the report, it is important that you sign it. This helps safeguard the system against abuse. Be assured that your personal information is for statistical use only and is held in the strictest of confidence. Drivers reported will receive a letter from the police, describing the unsafe or aggressive driving incident that was witnessed. If a driver is reported more than once, the police will make personal contact with that individual regarding the reported problems in person or by telephone. Subsequent offenses may result in enforcement action by the police depending on the severity of the incident. Remember, this is your opportunity to make our roads safer - the same roads you use everyday. Citizen Report Forms may be picked up at any of the following drop box sites: • Canadian Tire • Fast Eddies Diner • Annina’s Bake Shop & Cafe • Joy Village Market • Shell - Coppins Corners • L.C.B.O - Uxbridge • Leaskdale Country Store • Motor Licensing Office • Quaker Village Variety Store • Sandford General Store • Uxbridge Public Library • Uxbridge Township Office • Uxbridge PharmaSave • Uxbridge Arena • Zephyr Mini Mart

Contact us: Roadwatch@town.uxbridge.on.ca 905-852-9181 ext.298

Incidents of an urgent nature should be reported to the police immediately by dialing 911. If you have any questions regarding this program, please call: The Durham Regional Police Service Uxbridge Community Police Officer 1-888-579-1520

A Message from the Uxbridge Fire Department
More fires start in the kitchen than anywhere else in the home - but that doesn’t mean you have to get rid of your stove or eat out all the time. There’s a lot you can do to help fireproof your kitchen and reduce the chance of a fire starting from cooking. Both gas and electric stoves can cause fires, as well as toaster ovens, and any electrical appliance that can overheat. Be sure to follow the proper operating instructions when using your appliances Most kitchen fires are preventable if these fire safety tips are followed.

Don’t overload electrical outlets
• • Avoid overloading electrical outlets with too many kitchen appliances Carefully examine cords and discard any that are frayed, cracked or damaged

Working smoke alarms save lives
• • Purchase and install working smoke alarms. Specialized alarms are available for kitchen areas Test smoke alarms monthly and for battery operated smoke alarms replace batteries at least once a year

Stay in the kitchen when cooking
• • • • Never leave cooking unattended. Oil or fat can ignite Always turn oven and burners off when you are finished cooking Always unplug electrical appliances when not in use Keep children a safe distance from cooking

What to do if you have a kitchen fire?
Put a lid on it
• • To extinguish a grease fire, use a potholder or oven mitts and slide a lid or a cookie sheet over the flames, then turn the heat source off If the flames do not go out, immediately leave your home and call the fire department

Stay Alert
• • Cooking requires you to be rested and alert Avoid cooking when under the influence of alcohol or medication

Wear short or close-fitting sleeves
• • Avoid loose sleeves that may contact burners and catch fire Avoid storing items on or above your stove • • •

Oven and Microwave fires
If a fire starts in your oven, close the oven door and turn off the heat source For a microwave fire, keep the door closed and turn off the microwave Remember, if the fire does not go out, leave your home and call the fire department

Turn pot handles in
• • Prevent burns and stove-top fires by turning pot handles towards the back of the stove when cooking When ever possible use rear burners. Pot handles that stick out can be easily bumped or grabbed by a small child

Clean cooking surfaces
• Keep appliance surfaces free of spills and grease that may catch fire

Use portable fire extinguishers
• • Portable fire extinguishers can be effective in fighting small contained fires Use the appropriate extinguisher and ensure that you are trained in its use

Keep combustible items clear of stove
• Keep curtains, dish towels, plastic containers and pot holders away from hot surfaces

Operate Microwaves safely
• • Always use pot holders or oven mitts to remove food from microwaves Remove lids carefully to avoid steam burns

If you have any questions or require further information please call the Uxbridge Fire Department at 905-852-3393 Remember in the event of an EMERGENCY call 9-1-1
