The end of this road construction project is coming soon and estimated to be completed middle of September permitting. Finish grade gravel will be applied followed by reclaimed asphalt. A final sealant of stone chip and tar will then be applied.

There will be short term lane closures at different times and locations. will direct traffic and all residents will have access to their property. Please be vigilant of men working while driving in this area.

Most activities will be completed by the end of July, however the road has to sit to cure for the month of August.

June 28, 2018 - Township of Adelaide Metcalfe Logo

Adelaide Metcalfe – Following a Township wide survey conducted in 2017, the Council of the Township of Adelaide Metcalfe has adopted a new logo. The survey results indicated that many residents favoured a change to a more modern identity for the Township.
"The progressive decision by Council to modernize our Township image is vital," says Mayor Smith, "updating the Township logo is the first step in the branding strategy of the Strategic Plan".
The original Township crest was designed in 2001 as part of the amalgamation of the former Townships of Adelaide and Metcalfe. The new logo was created as a tribute to elements of the original crest with emphasis on the strength of the unified Adelaide Metcalfe.
Council will roll out the new logo this summer. The $30,000 donation received through the ‘Mar for Mayors’ program will be used to update the welcome signs into the Township and for the installation of community signs such as Buttery Creek and Kerwood.
