Neat! The closest right now is Food Basics, good to see some more basic shopping go in to this area (especially with Ion on the way).

The WRDSB has released the rendering for the new public school to open in 2016 in the Vista Hills neighbourhood on the west side of Waterloo.

The design is rather unique and refreshing from the conventional  new school design seen over the last 15 years. I hope this trend continues.

The WRDSB is getting more creative with school design lately, as seen with the new Moffat Creek Public School in southeast Cambridge (opened in 2012).

Looks neat. I guess if it opens in 2016 it would mean pretty much all kids would be bused to this school. There isn't near enough houses around there to support many children.

Wow, very creative.  Particularly given that the WRDSB is not usually known for their out of the box thinking when it comes to school design.

Yeah, their architects are just now discovering cellphone design from the 1980s school of industrial design, e.g. Motorola DynaTAC  Big Grin

Yeah, it has a 1960s-1970s retro style to it. I'd rather have something more forward looking...

Not sure if this was reported elsewhere but Waterloo Kia is moving into the building formerly occupied by Forbes Toyota at Northfield and Colby Dr.

There is presently no Waterloo Kia.  Is this the Kitchener Kia moving to Waterloo, or a brand new dealership?

151 Weber Street, South, Waterloo has a City of Waterloo sign (A-47/15) posted outside announcing a public meeting for a variance. The owners of the building currently have 68 parking spots and want to increase it to 138. There is a public meeting May 19.

Is there a way I can get some information about this before the meeting?
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
