Dovetailing the LRT with Ward 9 neighbourhoods

Managing the impact LRT will have on our inner-city

Even though it is a regional, not a Kitchener council issue, I am frequently asked about Light Rail Transit as I canvas Ward 9 communities before the Oct. 27 election.

When asked, I try to explain the impact — short-term pain for long-term gain — LRT will have on all parts of the inner-city, particularly the downtown section of Ward 9.

Kitchener council will have a say in planning LRT station areas in our city — seven in Ward 9 — and for overseeing development that will take place in an urban corridor adjacent to the light-rail route.

That route is located on the fringe of  some of our most established neighbourhoods including Mount Hope, Cherry Park, Victoria Park, Cedar Hill, Mill-Courtland and Rockway.
