Community News, and Some Light Reading

Last night, a public consultation centre was held at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex about Uptown Streetscape Improvement. More information can be found on the City of Waterloo’s website.
On the subject of protected cycling lanes in Uptown, TriTAG’s Chris Klein was interviewed on CBC KW’s The Morning Edition. Audio link here.

Tonight from 6 to 8PM at Waterloo City Hall the city will be holding an open house on the Waterloo trail network including an interior trail loop.
