The organizers of the 2017 Municipal Innovators Community conference partnered with the Guelph Lab and the Research Shop to prepare materials for the conference that would enable attendees to see themselves as “innovators,” and encourage discussion among attendees surrounding their respective experiences with and perspectives on innovation.
Among the materials that were used during the conference were:
an infographic outlining the processes and impacts of nine distinct examples of municipal innovations.
two case study reports, one of which was the Waterloo's Hydrocut Trail System as a case study in municipal innovation with a 25-year legal stewardship agreement in which the volunteer-run Waterloo Cycling Club manages and maintains the system while the Region retains all liabilities for its operations.
