Transportation - INPUT

Public invited to comment on two key transportation planning initiatives

Waterloo Region - The Region of Waterloo is hosting two public meetings on May 18, 2010, to hear the public's thoughts on two planning documents that will shape the future of transportation in Waterloo Region: the Draft Regional Transportation Corridor Guidelines and the Regional Transportation Master Plan.

The public meetings will take place in Regional Council Chambers at 150 Frederick Street. The first one is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. when members of the public can appear as delegations before the Region's Planning and Works Committee and provide their input on the Draft Regional Transportation Corridor Guidelines. The second meeting is at 7 p.m., when the public can provide their input about the Regional Transportation Master Plan. The purpose of these meetings is for the Planning and Works Committee to hear from the public and discuss the recommendations contained in each document. No decisions will be made at either meeting.

Developed to meet future transportation demand in Waterloo Region, the Regional Transportation Master Plan will determine investment priorities and supporting initiatives for transportation over the next 20 years. The preferred option presented in the plan features a transportation network with an integrated rapid transit and bus network and strategic road improvements to best meet the Region’s transportation goals and objectives.

The Draft Regional Transportation Corridor Guidelines have been developed as a tool to help the Region meet the transportation goals and objectives of the Regional Transportation Master Plan. The guidelines will provide design standards for planning and designing complete Regional roads that include space for all modes of transportation, as well as amenities like streetscaping.
