Kevin Thomason inside Township of Wilmot December 8, 2017, 3:47 PM

What do you like about the additional route option (F2b-K3b)?
More direct, faster route


What challenges do you see with the additional route option?
Less visibility, far less access to local neighbourhoods, environmental challenges with Hidden Valley


What new issues or information do we need to consider when evaluating the additional route option?
Need to consider a stop at Freeport Hospital and for the Chicopee Community. Sure one might be able to take a bus from Sportsworld but these could be busy destinations where accessibility is important - particularly if one considers that this might not just be an LRT from mall to mall but also from hospital to hospital...



What do you like about the additional route options?
All of them take you to Preston! Great to see the awful LRT route past Toyota and to the middle of nowhere no longer on the table!!!



What challenges do you see with the additional route options?
Each of them will have pro's and con's. I'm not from that neighbourhood but it will be important to work with the local community to determine the optimal route. Be sure to plan for success - which route is going to do the most to truly build ridership and be a world class solution? What option would be chosen if money was no object or we were actually constructing several LRT routes through the area as one day our community might have multiple LRT lines like most European cities our size.


What new issues or information do we need to consider when evaluating the additional route options?
I know many seniors and others in the Preston area though who are very excited about LRT coming in the future and are counting on it for mobility as they age and driving becomes more challenging.


What do you like about the additional route options and alternative terminal locations?
I think it is very important to push the LRT as far into Galt as possible and ensure two stations rather than just one - it gives double the amount of station areas to work with. Also the visibility from the River and even opening up the other side of the river (Architecture School, new retail developments, etc.) could be very important for building ridership and future use.


What challenges do you see with the additional route options and alternative terminal locations?
Alignment with optimal GO Train station.


What new issues or information do we need to consider when evaluating the additional route options and alternative terminal locations?
Building ridership, convenience, creating a world-class system built for success not lowest cost.

Philip Hewitson inside City of Waterloo December 8, 2017, 1:14 PM

What do you like about the additional route option (F2b-K3b)?
Direct, fast connection from Fairview Mall to Sportsworld. Taake advantage of River Road extension road allowances; minimizing property impacts

Widening of Hwy 8 bridge over Grand River, but this is better than building a brand new bridge in route K2


What new issues or information do we need to consider when evaluating the additional route option?
Impacts on Natural Environment, which should be less than widening roads and highways


What challenges do you see with the additional route options?
Adding length to route resulting in longer travel times


What new issues or information do we need to consider when evaluating the additional route options?
environmental impacts on natural areas.


What new issues or information do we need to consider when evaluating the additional route options and alternative terminal locations?
route should be selected to serve the highest density of residential, employment, retail, and business cleints
