Where is Government?

Niagara-on-the-Lake Town Council and Niagara Regional Council have both passed motions supporting Project Niagara in principle. The Ontario Ministries of Culture and Tourism have partially funded work on Project Niagara to date. Parks Canada has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the proponents, agreeing to further explore Project Niagara.

To date, no level of government has published a comprehensive plan to:
  1. Obtain input from the public
  2. Address questions and concerns
  3. Define a process for making decisions

We are asking elected officials in all levels of government to ensure:

  1. That any development of the Parks Canada land on Lakeshore Road be done in a way that is:
    - respectful of the natural and historic sites
    - environmentally sound
    - has a neutral impact to the flora and fauna
  2. The proposed music festival has a neutral impact to the quality of life of Niagara-on-the-Lake residents
  3. The proposed festival has a neutral-to-positive impact to Niagara-on-the-Lake ratepayers
  4. The potential benefits are realistic and achievable
