Tonight I decided it was too nice to stay in, so I headed down to the public square in Uptown Waterloo. I ended up just sitting and enjoying the evening there for three hours. There were hundreds of people passing through and a dozen seated most of the time. There were several skateboarders and "kids" hanging out. Families, and individual teens to elderly people, they all at times used the seating. I ran in to four people I know but haven't seen in a long time too, plus, UrbanWaterloo.

The lip at the bottom of the ramp is at least
I find it insulting that a brand new building on King Street has a main entry that is completely inaccessible for wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, strollers or a host of other mobility devices. How can a company get a building permit at that location without having an accessibility plan that includes an accessible main entrance? It's not like it would have been difficult to have put a ramp out front. There is plenty of room.
I called them to find out if the building has any level
Get on board. There is a way to voice your opinion!

I don't want to see this turn into my generation's version of the destruction of the former Kitchener City Hall.
