Earlier in 2023, City of Waterloo Council received feedback from the community about the challenges of moving around the city when there is snow on sidewalks. Council has directed operational staff to investigate ways of reducing these impacts to Waterloo residents. At this time that does not include the City taking on full responsibility for sidewalk snow clearing.
You are invited to participate in a feedback session specifically for people with disabilities, caregivers, and organizations that provide services to people with disabilities.
A hybrid meeting will be held on May 4, 2023, 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Participants will have the option to join in person at the Waterloo in Memorial in Recreation Complex - Community Pavilion or online.
At this meeting, staff will ask questions about unpassable sidewalks, the geographic hotspots for problematic snow clearing and how people with disabilities would like to communicate with the city about real time snow obstacles.
This feedback is very important to the decision making of strategies that will be selected in the report from staff back to Council in June.
If you are interested in attending, please complete this registration form to help us understand who will be participating. Registration will close on May 3rd at 11:59p.m.
