|KITCHENER'S COMING BUILDING BOOM
By the end of February 2019 the city expects to issue building permits worth $1.2 billion for 20 new developments in the city core. 10 of the projects will be the same size or larger than the condo tower at King and Victoria streets.
That coming building boom is unprecedented in the city's history.
A package of incentives that saved developers millions on the construction of new buildings and the restoration of old ones was created by the City of Kitchener. The incentives expire at the end of February 2019, and that's driving the rush to get developments approved, and building permits issued before then.
20 projects is extraordinary, it is going to transform the landscape.
Those 20 developments are a mixture of high-density residential buildings with ground-floor retail, and office buildings with ground-floor retail.
The new buildings will be located in an area bordered by Cameron, Victoria, Joseph and Weber streets. They will include 1,000 apartments, and 1,800 condos. That is expected to increase the number of residents in the city core to about 6,000, up from the current 2,400.
The developments will add 100,000 square feet of new retail space during the next five years, and 350,000 square feet of office space. January 10/18

CARBON MONOXIDE: PREVENTION
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas produced by the combustion of fuels such as natural gas, oil and propane in devices such as furnaces, water heaters, fireplaces and stoves. These items are normally designed to vent the CO to the outside, but harmful interior levels of CO can result from incomplete combustion of fuel, improper installation, blockages or leaks and cracks in the venting systems.
Homeowners can take action against potential Carbon Monoxide poisoning by following these steps:
1. Inspect all fuel burning appliances (gas stoves, fireplaces, ovens, furnaces, clothes dryers and heat generators) yearly before winter arrives.
2. If deficiencies are noted have the repairs done by a qualified technician.
3. Always use the proper fuel for the device.
4. Have flues and chimneys for fuel-burning fireplaces or woodstoves inspected for cracks, leaks and blockages.
5. Never use gas stoves or ovens to heat the home, not even temporarily.
6. Do not start a vehicle in a garage without the garage door open. Never idle your vehicle in the garage.
7. Purchase and maintain a CO detector.
8. KNOW the symtoms! If you experience fatigue, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea or confusion, everyone should leave immediately and seek medical attention.
9. If your alarm sounds and no symptoms are felt, open windows and doors immediately and shut off all fuel-burning devices that may be the potential source.
