                    Help Prevent
                    Pool Foulings
             • Please do not feed children 1 hour prior to their
               swimming lesson.
             • Please be sure to take your children to the bathroom
               just prior to their swimming lesson.
             • Please ensure that all children who are not toilet
               trained wear appropriate attire.
             • Please take into consideration how your children are
               feeling on the day of their lesson.

                       Pool foulings can result in delays
                      in programming or pool shut down.
                        We appreciate all of your help in
                        keeping our pool clean and safe.

          JUST MOVED INTO A NEW SUBDIVISION?
                                                      Do you have a question?

   Welcome to the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville!
   The Town has developed an information brochure that provides answers to the most
   frequently asked questions by residents moving into a new subdivision. While the
   Town does provide many services to new residents when they move in, many people
   are surprised to learn that the home builder & developer continue to be involved for
   years until the subdivision is finally assumed by the municipality. Builders/Developers
   are responsible to ensure that the subdivision meets all Town standards before the
   municipality assumes it. Some of the most FAQs are shown below.


  Copies of the brochure are available at
 the Town office and on the Town website




                                                                                                                                                                                                          new subdivision
