Speaker to focus on how Waterloo Region can help people move around


A forum on mobility, the next step in Waterloo Region’s Central Transit Corridor (CTC) Community Building Strategy, starts on Tuesday night with an internationally-recognized expert speaking. When I hear mobility, I usually think first of helping people get around who have physical challenges. But in this case, mobility refers to everyone and how we get from one place to another whether by foot, bicycle, car, public transit or other methods.

Steven Cassidy of MRC-McLean-Hazel in Edinburgh, Scotland will help set the stage for what we should be considering when planning the central transit corridor in such a way that people are encouraged to use the LRT. He speaks Tuesday night at 7. The CTC website has full details and a link to register to come.

An article in the Waterloo Region Record provides more information about Cassidy and what he will speak about.

The forum offers one other opportunity for the public to be involved. There is an open house on Thursday, 3 – 7 p.m., at the CTC’s storefront office that is in front of Kitchener City Hall at King and College. For more details, download the flyer found on this page of the CTC website.

I hope you’ll take advantage of one or both options to be involved in this forum.
