With 923'000 people expected to be living in Waterloo Region by 2051, the Region of Waterloo is putting together its newest Official Growth Plan and seeking public input.

"15 minute Neighbourhodds" is a useless marketing term unless the Region finally and for real shows commitment to walkability and active transportation (instead of the half-assed lip service they usually give those things) and takes a stand on lower-tier zoning reform to help get the missing middle housing built.
