When the city of Waterloo is presented with new projects, CSAC helps to review the project to help recommend enhancements that accommodate and encourage travel by by use  walking. CSAC is also working on establishing a dedicated funding source for sidewalk maintenance.

Here are some of the projects the committee has and/or continues to work on.
