Waterloo Region's LRT and Central Transit Corridor:
community-building strategy open houses, February 20, 21, 25



ctcbannerjpg.jpgThe Region of Waterloo is developing a strategy to support and develop the various communities along the route of its future light rail transit line.

Its community-building strategy is a 10-month planning process to examine the relationship between the LRT route — the “Central Transit Corridor” — and the Region’s cities and neighbourhoods and help identify how to support rapid transit and the community benefits that come with it.

This month, the region presents its draft strategy at open houses in Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo. Drop by to view panels highlighting the key components of the strategy, attend an overview presentation and participate in roundtable discussions.

During the events, you’ll learn about various ways to improve the corridor and nearby communities, including new land-use and mobility plans, 69 place-specific initiatives and 23 station-area snapshots. You can also find out more about strategies that build upon key community-building opportunities by:

  • attracting investment;
  • improving learning;
  • improving mobility;
  • encouraging healthy, inclusive communities;
  • creating high-quality urban places
  • “greening” the corridor;
  • strengthening employment; and
  • creating great places to visit.
