Woodworth and Zehr announce community infrastructure support in Kitchener
City of Kitchener received funding for two projects: $200,000 for new washrooms in Victoria Park and $250,000 for surfacing some primary trails with asphalt. The city is contributing an additional $200,000 and $250,000, respectively, to these projects from the recreational land reserve.
KITCHENER Stephen Woodworth, member of parliament for Kitchener Centre and Kitchener Mayor Carl Zehr announced support for two projects in the city of Kitchener from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund yesterday.
“The government is committed to creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for Canadians through investments in our communities,” said Woodworth. “The Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund projects in our community will help to boost economic activity and enhance the benefit of urban conservation for Kitchener residents of all ages.”
“This is great news for the city. New washrooms in Victoria Park will make this busy, beautiful park even better for the community,” said Mayor Carl Zehr. “As we continue to improve our trails and urban pathway connections, we are improving quality of life for our citizens.”
