*This message is being shared by the Town on behalf of Beaver Valley Outreach

The Blue Mountains, July 28, 2021 – As with many organizations and businesses across Canada, COVID-19 seriously disrupted operations and revenue flow for Beaver Valley Outreach, a local non-profit dedicated to providing programs and services to enhance the lives of people in The Blue Mountains.

Most impacted was BVO’s Treasure Shop, the economic engine of the organization. Prior to the pandemic, the thrift store was generating more than 33% of BVO’s annual income. In 2020, that figure dropped by half to just 16%. To make matters worse, the number of BVO volunteers, the lifeblood of the organization, has dropped by 60% from over 300 people. The Treasure Shop currently has 50 active volunteers, compared to 180 pre-pandemic. In order to keep the store open, 10-15 new volunteers are required.

BVO Treasure Shop was closed for much of 2020 and into 2021 and, when it was open, many of BVO’s active volunteers were hesitant to return to work, or needed to take on a caregiver role for their grandchildren or other members of their families. Add to this, the changing demographics of a small town, while attempting to recruit new volunteers.  

“Due to the decline in our volunteer base, and to keep up our recycling efforts and open the store, we had no choice but to hire staff in our Treasure Shop in two key roles – a Sorting Assistant and a Bin Assistant - to provide consistency in our operations,” says BVO Volunteer Coordinator Julie Traversa, noting that some funding was obtained to assist in financing these positions.

“The pandemic, combined with our enhanced profile in the community, has prompted us to operate more like a business. We see this as an opportunity to create a better environment for our volunteers, attract new faces, and together serve our community better than ever.”

“While trying to maintain the grassroots character of our organization, we recognize that we are also a social enterprise that has to generate revenue to fuel the programs and services we offer in our community,” adds BVO Executive Director Carolyn Letourneau.

“Right now, we need to harness the knowledge and expertise of new people moving into the area, and engage them as volunteers. The time commitment we’re asking for in our Treasure Shop and other programs can be as little as 2 to 3 hours per week, or per month,” says Letourneau. “But ultimately, we’re really looking for a commitment, based on our current needs.”

If you care about the environment and want to help reduce items going to landfill, BVO has a position for you! The Treasure Shop is looking for creative, well-organized people in a number of roles: those with retail experience, those who like to sort books and music, and anyone with muscle to help move around donated goods. Volunteer opportunities elsewhere in BVO include assistance in various child care settings, seniors’ programs, Bottles for BVO, and Thornbury Community Garden.

Are you new to the area? Looking for a way to give back to the community? Volunteering at BVO is a great way to meet people, get connected, learn about our community, and learn about the charitable sector. Help others. Bring a friend. Have some fun while you help make good things happen in our community!”

You can make a difference. It starts with a conversation. Call Julie Traversa, BVO Volunteer Coordinator, to find out how to get involved: 519-599-2577, ext. 125.

Background Information on the Community Sustainability Plan

The Town of The Blue Mountains is creating a Community Sustainability Plan to ensure the Town and its residents, workers and visitors thrive for generations to come.

The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise the public that The Blue Mountains Waste Disposal Site, located at 788090 Grey Road 13, is now accepting Styrofoam packaging material as part of a pilot program aimed at reducing waste in the Town.

The pilot program will be specific to a limited type of expanded polystyrene foam (type 6 plastic) or Styrofoam product packing. This type of foam is associated with the rigid white block foam used to protect products and equipment (such as electronics) during shipment and transport.

When dropping off accepted materials, please ensure the Styrofoam is clean and tape-free. The Styrofoam material collected will be stored at the Site to be densified by a recycling contractor and sent to a recycler to be made into new products such as picture frames.

The pilot program does not accept the following materials:

  • Coloured foam;
  • Take-out containers, food and meat trays, and cups;
  • Peanut packaging;
  • Toys;
  • Pool noodles; and
  • Construction materials.

Styrofoam will not be collected as part of the curbside blue box program, however, accepted foam materials are free to drop off with other Blue Box materials at the Waste Disposal Site. Please note that fees may apply to other waste items at the Site.

The pilot program is anticipated to run until the end of 2021, with the overall success of the program to be studied for an expanded implementation in 2022 following the pilot program’s conclusion. For more information on the Depot Collection Pilot Program, please visit: https://www.thebluemountains.ca/solid-waste.cfm

The Town Disposal Site has had great success with implementing new programs and participation from local groups such as Thornbury’s Climate Action Now Networks and the general public have allowed for growth in the drywall, asphalt shingle and mattress recycling programs.

We need more people getting their first and second doses as soon as possible. Vaccination is the key to defeating this pandemic.”

The Town of The Blue Mountains has launched a Density and Intensification study for Thornbury to help identify specific areas for intensification and appropriate residential built form, as well as policy and zoning recommendations for Thornbury as it continues to grow.

To gain feedback, a public survey and online mapping tool have been launched. The survey will be available until Wednesday, July 28, 2021 and can be accessed by visiting www.thebluemountains.ca/survey. Paper copies are available upon request by calling 519-599-3131 ext. 248 or at the Town of The Blue Mountains Town Hall.

Results from the survey and online mapping tool will be used to help identify potential intensification sites and appropriate residential built-form opportunities in Thornbury. The results will also be used to prepare new policy changes at the Official Plan and Zoning By-law level. These policy changes will be shared with the public before being finalized and then brought forward for Council consideration and public comment in Fall 2021.

“Thornbury is a great community made up of many different housing types and housing densities. An appropriate range and mix of housing is important to attract and retain residents throughout all stages of life,” explained Shawn Postma, Senior Policy Planner for the Town of The Blue Mountains. “This study will aim to identify the existing housing supply in Thornbury and to identify locations for appropriate housing infill and intensification opportunities. The views and interests of area residents are integral to help define the character of Thornbury, and to gain input on the various density types within the Town and surrounding communities.”

Study Area Information

The study area is specific to the Thornbury boundary, which includes lands bounded by Peel Street to the north, Georgian Bay to the east, Russell Street to the south, and 10th Line to the west. However, the Study Area excludes lands within the western portion of Thornbury designated Future Secondary Plan Area. These lands will be developed through a more comprehensive Secondary Plan process in the future.

Your thoughts and ideas on residential development, density, infill and intensification within Thornbury will help guide the Town as we move into the next phase of the study.
