The region staff is recommending to council that they choose option 3B for a Natural Heritage System. This option is totally in favour of development. It means Niagara will look like Mississauga in a few short years.
And citizens won’t be able to have any further input on development.
It is critical if you don’t want this it happen that you contact your Niagara region representatives on council https://www.niagararegion.ca/government/council/profiles/default.aspx and let them know you want Option 3C+.
Also ask for option 2C for the equally important Water Resource System to keep our water clean. Call them, write them, zoom with them. Ask for a reply. They need to know what the community really wants. This is the only way to stop the developers from controlling our communities.
