Let Them Know You Care By Being There!
A Brief Call-Out from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper
Posted August 23rd, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Many of you may already know about roughly 500 acres of forest, savannah and wetlands located in the Niagara River watershed in Niagara Falls, Ontario growing numbers of residents across the region have come to know as the Thundering Waters Forest, and what certain others in politics and in the business of .paving over paradise have in store for it.
There was some encouraging news in recent days that at least some people in the City of Niagara Falls Planning Department has some questions and concerns about a massive urban development plan for this area. But it is ultimately up to the politicians on the city’s council to decide whether or not to approve the development, and municipal councils have had a record of voting for a development project, against the concerns of their own planners plenty of times in the past.
That is why it is so important for members of the public to remain engaged in the Thundering Waters Forest issues and to make certain you let members of the Niagara Falls city council know how you feel.
One important time to do that is this Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. at Niagara Falls City Hall (you can find a map for the location for the city hall by doing a simple search on your computer).
Be there while it counts!
