Terrace Lodge Redevelopment Resident Home Area and Common Area Naming

FOR INFORMATION - March 25, 2022

The Terrace Lodge Long-Term Care Home located in Malahide Township, Elgin County is undergoing a redevelopment that is scheduled to be completed in 2024. Terrace Lodge was originally built in 1977 and has been home to hundreds of Elgin County residents over the past 40 years. The redevelopment has been designed to better meet the complex needs of Long-Term Care residents now and into the future. The redevelopment will maintain the 100 beds currently available at Terrace Lodge and consist of an addition and significant renovations to existing areas.

Phase One of construction is well underway and it is now time to select updated, meaningful, community-based names for Resident Home Areas and Common Areas. It is critical that when selecting these names, the County of Elgin seeks feedback from Terrace Lodge staff, residents and their family members as well as members of the broader local community. 

Fill out the survey by April 21, 2022 to let Elgin County know which of the suggested names your like best and to provide your own unique ideas! 


During the 2022 budget deliberations Council approved an annual flat sewer charge of $282.00 ($70.50 quarterly or 23.50 monthly). This charge is in addition to the consumption charge of 2.92/m3. Sewer rates are not supplemented by the municipal property tax levy. Similarly, sewer rates are not used for any other purpose and do not contribute to the Municipality's general revenue or tax revenue. Therefore, this new sewer charge has been implemented to cover the annual operational costs, as well as ensuring sufficient funds are put into reserves to address aging infrastructure and future replacement and development.


Water Bills Now Mailed Out


Water Bills have now been mailed out with a due date of April 15, 2022. New on water bills is a monthly sewer fee of $23.50 ($70.50 per quarter). Please refer to our website for further information on our 2022 fees bylaw.

Snowplow Safety


Remaining safe is a joint responsibility. When you see a snow plow, salt or sand truck on the road, please proceed with caution. Snow plows are built to remove large volumes of snow and ice and that means we’re packing alot of weight. Operator eyes are on the road, the snow, potential obstacles and dangers – we ask residents to be patient. Give time and space to the snow plow operators and never pass a snow plow on the right and only on the left when it is safe and legal to do so.

Thank you for helping keep our roads safe during the winter season.

Here’s some helpful Do’s and Dont’s for motorists


  • ​Turn on your head and tail lights during heavy snow or rain, even during the day.
  • Use winter-rated snow tires with the mountain-snowflake symbol.
  • Watch for the flashing amber lights.  It can be difficult to see snow removal equipment.
  • Give snow plows plenty of space – about 10 car lengths.  Salt and winter abrasives, as well as rocks and other debris in the snow, can fly – hitting nearby vehicles and decreasing visibility.
  • Remember the road surface ahead of the plow hasn’t been plowed yet therefore please slow down and be patient.  The operator will eventually pull over when it is safe to do so to allow motorists to pass, so take your time, wait and be safe.
  • Pull as far over to the right as is safe when you see a snow plow approaching from the opposite direction along an undivided highway. That way, you will be clear of any salt or winter abrasives.
  • Give the snow plow operator a wave when they pull over to let you pass. They’re out there to keep our roads safe!  


  • DON'T ... Assume the snow plow operator can see you, especially if you’re driving too close and visibility is poor (which it often is in snowstorms). Your best defense is to keep your distance.
  • DON'T ... park on roadways, boulevards or sidewalks
  • DON'T ... Pass snow plows. It’s not safe.  When drivers attempt to pass a plow truck, they put themselves, their passengers, the snow plow operator and other motorists at risk. The plow could be equipped with a wing blade on its left or right side, which can be obstructed by the snow it’s throwing.  The plow also may be the first of a series of two to four more plows, staggered diagonally across the road to clear all lanes simultaneously. This practice is called Echelon Plowing and would require the unwise driver to make multiple unsafe passes.
  • DON'T ... Tailgate.  Tailgating any vehicle puts you at risk of a collision; tailgating a piece of heavy equipment armed with plows only ups the consequences.
