Hello everyone.

I’m thrilled to let you know that we gained over 120 signatures last week mostly from people in St. Catharines and Buffalo who have been to Waverly Woods but didn’t know what was happening.

We now have 5,367 signatures!

So what is happening. The Hearing date is set for May 25, 2020. Our experts are busy preparing for the best outcome. 

We have some upcoming events to announce.
