Upcoming Public Information Centres on Tree Protection Regulations in Niagara Temporarily Cancelled

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 Region will be back with new dates for public to meet on review of its tree protection rules.

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.

A Brief Footnote from Doug Draper at NAL – This review of Niagara Region’s tree protection rules is extremely important for all of us who want to see stronger measures in place to protect our trees and green places.

Niagara At Large will be sure to let you know when new dates are available from Niagara Region to meet and consult on this issue.
