Waterloo's own bylaw probably has height limits to lamp post/solar panel collection devices. I didn't look it up but yesterday I was reading Kitchener's bylaw and I came across that very issue in property standards information.

Solar LED lamps are usually about half as high as sodium vapour street lights. Do you think that would be too short or too high to meet regulations?
p.s. A positive unintended side effect is that LED lights produce substantially less light pollution: lower and more directional.
Great resource, thanks. The drawings linked to in that report have 15' posts with LED lighting (non-solar)
Spur Line Trail construction appears to be in full swing. Ground prep and post bases in between Regina and Willow. Given that (I think) there is no drainage work happening there, we may see trail surface poured sometime soonish.
Hillside Park trail surface is nearing completion. Crews were pouring asphalt at the Carter/University entrance to connect up with asphalt laid at the (south) foot of the bridge. Caution though! There are several cuts along the section paved last fall, looks like they'll be fixing that up as well before they're done.
Markster, do you have any more details about that bridge? Can't watch video right now. It would help a lot in getting across the expressway. Ottawa is still a huge problem though.
Nope. That was literally all that was said. There aren't many details yet.
I've been impressed by the quality and quantity of suggestions (many of which have been discussed here and previously on WW) on Kitchener's trails survey so far:
The tool is very intuitive and easy to use (and doesn't require any kind of account to use).
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
Where abouts is this Spur Line Trail, Waterlooer?
