Another Public Workshop:: Residential Intensification in Established Neighbourhoods Study (RIENS)

It’s undeniable; every corner of our city is experiencing change and growth. Out City is making efforts to ensure this growth and change happens in a planned and plan-ful way.

As a midtown KW neighbourhood, we are surrounded by all the new development that will a lasting impact as changes evolve.

In addition to the PARTS (Planning Around Rapid Transit Stations) process, there is RIENS (Residential Intensification in Established Neighbourhoods Study) and it effects our Mount Hope neighbourhood.

  • RIENS recognizes that the city is growing quickly; the Region of Waterloo is building smart growth strategies in place to direct development and preserve green space and agricultural land and some of the growth will take place in already established neighbourhoods like ours
  • RIENS will undertake a review of its planning approval process for new development projects in established residential neighbourhoods to determine if changes are necessary. The purpose of the Residential Intensification in Established Neighbourhoods Study (RIENS) is to develop a clear and fair process for approving redevelopment projects in these neighbourhoods

Attend a public workshop to hear about and provide feedback on the study’s recommended approach that will be presented to Kitchener City Council early next year.
