Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

If you are able to get the city to reallocate the road budget to building trails and pedestrian bridges, I congratulate you.

On the property management site it shows future development of 5000sqft but not where the construction is taking place.

That must be old. The part that is being developed is shown as parking on the diagram.

Well, at least that's better than a McDonald's Drive-Thru. I see this cup as half-full.

That corner of town has a distinct lack of fast food options, so not a terrible thing to add.

I agree. Now if only we could also get a Tim Hortons over here too.

Noticed today that there was construction hoarding around Volkswagen Waterloo with signs saying renovation.

The industrial building under construction on Randall Dr is quite large and the exterior looks to be nearing completion. The project is being done by GranVal Construction.


Also the space formally occupied by Caml Tomlin now has signs for a forthcoming business Heffner Cabinetry and Woodworking.

If anyone is into the vaping scene I learned that Toronto's DashVapes is opening a shop in Waterloo by the beer store north of King and Northfield in September.
