The streets are about to shut down. But don’t worry it’s only temporary, and it is all in good fun. Open Streets Uptown Waterloo is a planned, fun-filled event coming to town this summer. Our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, is highlighting some need-to-know information about this upcoming event near their Waterloo apartments.
