A partnership between masters student researchers in the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development and the City of Kitchener has been given the green light by city council. Led by professor Sean Geobey, the students will be working with the city to implement a participatory budget experiment, where citizens will be given the opportunity to direct a portion of the city's budget.
One step closer to two-way all-day travel to Toronto
School of Planning Professor and Associate Provost, Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs, Jeff Casello spoke with CTV news last night about Infrastructure Ontario’s plan to build a second Go Train tunnel. While a request for proposals has just gone out, the multi-million dollar contract is expected to be awarded by fall. Casello said it's been a long time coming and the two-way all-day service between Waterloo Region and Toronto will create a valuable innovative ecosystem. The project is part of the Province's largest ever investment in public infrastructure.
