  • Why are we here today?We are here today to celebrate the launch of the Community Building Strategy, and involve you in the

    discussion by providing information about the process and future opportunities for your involvement

    throughout the project. The CTC Community Building Strategy is about exploring the potential of the

    rapid transit investment to provide enhanced mobility, place making, reurbanization, and strengthened

    communities throughout and along the Corridor. We want to hear from you about your vision for the

    Central Transit Corridor and the opportunities that you feel would help to strengthen the success of this

    investment. Get involved! Have your say! Shape the future of your community, and the future of the region.

    The Central Transit Corridor runs through some of the most developed areas of the region, connecting Cambridge in the south through Kitchener to the northern end of Waterloo.

  • THE CONTEXTThe Region of Waterloo is planning for rapid transit along the Central Transit Corridor, a 36 km central spine that connects Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo. Along with designing the transit infrastructure and its 23 stations, a key piece of work the Region is undertaking to leverage this investment, is the creation of a Community Building Strategy. This strategy will identify key directions for city building, place making and moving people within, to, and from this Corridor. In crafting the Central Transit Corridor (CTC) Community Building Strategy, the Region and its local municipal partners would like to work closely with the diverse range of stakeholders along the Corridor to ensure their perspectives are understood, and the full opportunity offered by this important transit investment is captured.

    The Central Transit Corridor (CTC)

    The Community Building Strategy

    The Central Transit Corridor (CTC) is a rapid transit spine connecting the three cities of Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo. By 2017,

    the rst stage of the 36km transit line will operate with adapted bus rapid transit service from Ainslie Street Terminal to Fairview Park

    Mall, and LRT between Fairview Park Mall and Conestoga Mall. Over the long term, the LRT will be extended from Fairview Park Mall

    south along the length of the corridor. In addition to the enhanced transit service, the corridor will create a range of new city building

    opportunities for new and improved uses, open spaces and community supportive initiatives along the line.

    The CTC Community Building Strategy is about exploring the potential of the rapid transit investment to provide enhanced mobility,

    place making, reurbanization, and strengthened communities throughout and along the Corridor. The Community Building Strategy

    will be the framework that the Region, Cities, and communities will use to dene these opportunities, demonstrate the scale and

    scope of change that is desirable, and provide direction on how best to maximize the community-building potential offered by the

    transit investment.

    The CTC Community Building Strategy is led by the Region of Waterloos Planning, Housing, and Community Services Department.

    The Region has retained a consultant team to assist them in developing the strategy. Urban Strategies is the lead consultant, with

    responsibility for the urban design, planning components and consultation components of the study. Urban Strategies is working with

    sub-consultants Nelson/Nygaard who are transit experts with a specialty in creating multimodal transportation networks, and Colliers

    International, who will provide input on the market and development opportunities along the line.

    Since 2005, the rapid transit project, including the route and station locations, has gone through an extensive environmental

    assessment and public consultation process. The Region of Waterloo Rapid Transit Division has recently completed an Environmental

    Project Report (EPR) and released a Notice of Completion of EPR as part of the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) on March

    16th, 2012. Next steps: procurement - including the release of an RFQ (fall 2012) and RFP (early 2013), the beginning of construction

    (2014), and completion of construction (2017). Comments or requests for information related to this work can be forwarded to

    Rapid transit was rst identied in the Regional Plans in the late 1970s.

    Creation of Grand River Transit to co-ordinate transit services throughout the region.

    Region of Waterloo Council approves the Regional Growth Management Strategy, which includes a higher-order transit system.

    Grand River Transit begins express service via its iXpress system.

    The Provincial and Federal Governments announce funding for rapid transit in Waterloo Region.

    Full implementation of the aBRT, and construction of LRT Stage 1.

    Beginning of the planning for LRT Stage 2.

    Operation of LRT Stage 1 begins

    The CTC Community Building Strategy sets out a series of strategies for how to grow the Region with rapid transit (2012).

    The diagram below outlines a timeline for the process. We are currently in the Understanding phase. Your participation and feedback at this key stage will assist in helping to rene our understanding of the Central Transit Corridor (CTC), its issues and opportunities, and in establishing principles and directions for the project.

    The creation of the Rapid Transit Corridor has been a long process with many key events. The Community Building Strategy is an opportunity to explore the relationship between the Rapid Transit Corridor and a whole host of other city-building initiatives such as place-making, enhancing mobility, reurbanization and cultural expression.

    Why is Rapid Transit Important?

    Enhanced Transit Offers The Region And Its Communities A Range Of Benets

    Protecting the Countryside

    Tell us why rapid transit might be important to you?

    Improving Mobility

    Improving Environmental Sustainability

    Supporting Regional Prosperity

    Enhancing Quality of Life

    The rapid transit system will enhance regional connectivity, creating both a physical

    connection and bringing the region closer together through reduced travel times. The

    stations, and vehicles are all envisioned to be both physically accessible, and cycling

    friendly. The network will also be closely connected with the Regions express and

    local bus services. The result will be greater opportunities to walk, bike and move

    throughout the region.

    Rapid transit promotes compact development, and the movement of more people

    using less space. More people and jobs can occupy a smaller space with rapid

    transit than if those people and jobs were more dependent on the automobile. As

    the region grows with rapid transit, it can grow within its existing boundary, protecting

    countryside, which would otherwise have to be developed to accommodate new

    growth.

    Public transit of all forms is well recognized for its contribution to environmental

    sustainability. Investment in rapid transit in Waterloo Region will result in reduced

    greenhouse gases per trip in the Region, and therefore will result in better air quality.

    Rapid transit also supports reurbanization and the efcient use of land, which

    will result in more active transportation choices, a reduced carbon footprint, and

    protection of the important agricultural and natural areas that surround the region.

    It is estimated that the investment in rapid transit will save the Region $400-500

    million in road expansions and upgrades, while simultaneously creating thousands

    of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in increased land values. Improved transit

    can result in a reduced proportion of family budgets allocated to transportation and

    a greater range of housing opportunities through new development and improved

    connectivity.

    Rapid transit can help to reinvigorate areas in transition and help them realize

    their potential. Anticipating this process means that we can plan for the type of

    communities we want to see; communities that will improve quality of life for people

    who live there, and will continue to be able to live there as they age. A city designed to

    support transit ridership can lead to greater levels of activity on streets and sidewalks,

    renewing downtowns and enhancing public safety.

    For the Region, this means:More compact development

    For you, this means:Future access to the countryside as you know it now

    For the Region, this means:An accessible system for all Moving more people in less space

    For you, this means:Reduced travel times throughout the corridorReduced congestion versus business as usualMore ways to get around

    For the Region, this means:Creates demand for lands around stations Increases land values Less money spent on new road infrastructure

    For you, this means:Community reinvestment New job opportunities Greater housing choice and less need for multiple car ownership

    For the Region, this means;Investment in the regions environmental futureReduces greenhouse gas emissions per trip

    For you, this means:Cleaner air Future access to natural areas as they are now

    For the Region, this means;Revitalization of transitional areas A plan to manage change over the long term

    For you, this means:Increased community and street life Renewed downtowns and increased sense of safety

    DRAFT CITY OF WATERLOO - OFFICIAL PLAN (2012)

    DRAFT CITY OF KITCHENER - OFFICIAL PLAN (2011)

    DRAFT CITY OF CAMBRIDGE - OFFICIAL PLAN (2012)

    KEY POINTS

    1. There is limited vacant land left so new growth will be accommodated through intensication. Intensication will be directed to Uptown Waterloo and major transit station areas, and to nodes and corridors as well.

    2. 45 percent of new residential development will be in existing built-up areas.

    3. The City of Waterloo aims to develop a compact urban form to facilitate reduced reliance on the automobile, while supporting transit, and promoting connectivity, safe and efcient movement, and sustainable transportation.

    4. To meet urban growth targets, the City of Waterloo will provide opportunities for new growth within the Urban Growth Centre (Uptown Waterloo), nodes, corridors, and major transit station areas.

    KEY POINTS

    1. The City will continue to have balanced growth with an ever increasing emphasis on intensication, particularly in the Urban Growth Centre (downtown Kitchener), major transit station areas, nodes and corridors.

    2. New development and intensication will be compact, efcient, and vibrant, and optimize the use of existing and new infrastructure.

    3. Intensication areas are identied, and should be placed as close as possible to transit station areas. To achieve intensication targets, higher frequency transit will be required. The planned function of reurbanization corridors is to connect and facilitate movement between urban structure components and to provide a focus for higher density mixed-use development to support and ensure the viability of existing and planned rapid transit service levels.

    KEY POINTS

    1. New growth will be accommodated where municipal services are available within the urban area, and a signicant portion will be shifted from greeneld areas to intensication within the built up area.

    2. The City of Cambridge will plan for "compact urban development that maintains a balanced land supply, including residential, employment and commercial uses, and promotes mixed-use, transit oriented development." Intensication is encouraged in the built up area, particularly within the Urban Growth Centre (downtown Cambridge), community core areas, nodes, regeneration areas, reurbanization corridors, and major transit station areas.

    3. The City, in collaboration with the Region, will, where appropriate, establish minimum density targets for intensication consistent with existing or planned transit service levels.

    ---

    As part of York Regions progressive 25-year vision to promote more alternative modes of transportation, the region undertook a detailed marketing strategy to shift public perceptions of transit. An outcome of this process has been the new Viva Bus Rapid Transit system. To increase convenience and enhance the systems image, new buses and shelters incorporating a higher level of pedestrian amenity were deployed on key routes throughout the region. The region also initiated a series of outreach programs to raise community awareness among key ridership growth sectors including students.

    The Transit and Trails program run by Bay Areas Open Space Council encourages transit users to explore the local open space network without the use of automobiles. A special map, web-based trip planner and mobile phone application enable users to plan their outings by searching for parks or trails and identifying the best ways to get there by public transit. The applications identify the entrance to trails, contain preset trips and allow users to share their experiences and tips online for other users.

    As part of Vancouvers vision to be the greenest city in the world, the planning for the Cambie Street rapid transit corridor took a unique interdisciplinary approach to new development. The process integrated ideas related to integrated transportation, energy, land-use, waste, water, green space and urban food system planning with an aim of signicantly reducing the areas environmental footprint. Densities along the corridor are linked directly to the ability for new development to be supportive of district energy over time, creating specic metrics to guide development.

    Light Rail Connect is a local online community that connects individuals, fosters community activism and promotes businesses and organizations along the Phoenix light rail corridor. The network helps promote urban renewal by facilitating communications between interested parties, allowing the formation of highly benecial and otherwise unlikely partnerships. The website makes it easy to nd accommodations, employment and entertainment near light rail transportation, thereby enhancing the vitality of the transportation corridor.

    Working together with local artists, institutions and neighbourhood advisory committees, the DART Light Rail System transformed common station elements such as canopies, columns, pavers etc. into an award-winning collection of public art. A self guiding booklet can be purchased at any station and is promoted to residents and tourists as a way to turn the daily commute into an art tour around the city. The program has turned the transit system into a city icon, celebrating community, diversity and history.

    By Partnering with ENMAX and Vision Quest Windelectric, the City of Calgary was able to develop a program to make its C-Train 100 percent emission free. As a result, the systems reliance on coal and natural gas generated power has been completely replaced by clean, sustainable wind energy. The city uses the program to actively market the transit system as a carbon-free alternative to the automobile. It is estimated that the program eliminates the creation of 47,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually or equal to eight million car trips.

    The City of Portland is constrained by an urban growth boundary that limits its ability to expand outward. By engaging in public-private partnerships with developers along its light rail lines, the city has been able to achieve a number of important goals including: ecological preservation, affordable housing, high-quality streetscapes and public spaces. In the last decade the city was able to meet its 2-year housing objective in just seven years time on a tenth the land originally anticipated.

    Learning From Other Places

    How Transit Has Enhanced Other Communities

  • Around each station there should be neighbourhoods that can serve living, working, and shopping needs. This process is more important than the line itself. I want my kids to be able to take RT to hockey practice, but all the sports facilities are off the line. How will they be able to do this? Downtown Cambridge (Galt) can become something incredible over the long term, and RT will helps with this. I expect a lift in market values for properties along the RT line. Im concerned that the increase in market values as a result of RT will make it more difcult for the little guys to play. I support RT and healthy communities. We need to have conversations about how it may impact vulnerable peoples and communities. I dont want to see people displaced by increasing land values. We should focus on the arts and culture, which could be used to bolstered the area, through connections, RT, and incorporating art into stations. We need to dene how development will occur with RT, and where it will occur. Were too suburban. We should focus great retail and other uses in conjunction with stations to become more urban. We need a way to capitalise on all the great things happening in Downtown Cambridge. RT will help. Visitors want to know how to get to the airport by transit. We need to make sure the major attractions are accessible. Connectivity is so important to the tourism industry. Creative talent, and tech talent, wants better connectivity and less reliance on the car. They want great trails and transit. Businesses want to be better connected to transit. We need to be careful when creating crossings over sensitive watercourses, and when proposing developments in oodplains. We are looking for enhanced pedestrian facilitates adjacent to the corridor. Will the LRT Divide King Street? How can we ensure this does is not the case? What can we do to make sure that the LRT doesnt divide Waterloo Park? The line will go through regionally signicant historic and picturesque communities. How will these communities be protected? What will the impact on the river be? How will LRT impact cultural heritage? Im concerned that development pressure will undermine the protection of cultural heritage resources. Will there be advertising and way nding along the route? Can stations be linked to site history? (I.e. our industrial history?) We need to engage youth about the future of the corridor.
