Provide your feedback to help protect Niagaras woodlands

Posted by Niagara Region on Monday, June 15th, 2020

Niagara residents, businesses and other stakeholders are being asked to weigh in on the future of woodland conservation in the region, through a brief online survey and a virtual open house.The Region is in the process of updating its Woodland Conservation By-law, which has been regulating and conserving woodlands in Niagara since 1981. Public feedback is needed to ensure the revised by-law provides the tools needed to effectively conserve and regulate Niagara’s woodlands, while remaining consistent with Provincial legislation and best planning and management practices.

Residents are invited to share their input through a brief online survey. The survey is open until June 30, and should take about 10 minutes to complete.

The Region is also offering those interested the chance to learn more about the by-law, ask questions, and meet the project team through a virtual open house, conducted through Zoom and accessible by smartphone, tablet, computer, or by phone through teleconference on:

· Wednesday, June 17, 5-6 p.m.

Residents interested in participating are recommended to register in advance by emailing woodlandreview@niagararegion.ca. Participants will be given instructions on how to participate.

If you are unable to attend the virtual open house, you can also contact the project team by calling 905-980-6000 ext. 3459 or emailing wodlandreview@niagararegion.ca to request more information, ask questions and provide your feedback. A video recording of the open house will also be available online following the event. ‚Äč
