City of Waterloo Adopts Canada’s First Complete Streets Policy

On April 18, 2011, Council for the City of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada approved in principle the Transportation Master Plan that includes a Complete Streets policy. We understand it to be the first in Ontario and believe it makes Waterloo the first municipality in Canada to adopt a Complete Streets policy making active transportation an integral part of their municipal transportation system.

Chris Hodgson, from the City of Waterloo will be presenting at TCAT’s Complete Streets Forum this Thursday, April 28th, along with a full line-up of excellent speakers. Chris will explain how this policy came about and what it means for Waterloo. Congratulations to all involved in bringing this plan to fruition!
