Coronavirus Outbreak Places Public Sessions on this Important Issue on Temporary Hold
A Message from Niagara’s Regional Government
Posted March 19th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
Niagara, Ontario – Due to recent events and the temporary closure of event facilities, please note that the Public Information Centres (PICs) previously scheduled for March 24, 25, 30 and 31 have been cancelled.
Our website<https://www.niagararegion.ca/culture-and-environment/woodland-bylaw-review/default.aspx> and social media have been updated to reflect this change and newspaper notices regarding the cancellation have or will soon be published. Updates regarding rescheduled PICs, if applicable, will similarly be advertised.
Posting of the survey link and PIC materials have been delayed as staff responsible for its publication are busy with other urgent website updates for our Public Health department. We are hopeful this information will soon be available.
