Late last year, Niagara Parks announced two major restoration projects of landmark attractions in the region. The first, it was officially revealed on Nov. 27, is the historic Toronto Power Generating Station, located in Niagara Falls. The second, as confirmed on Dec. 13, is the old Miller’s Creek Marina, located in Fort Erie.
As Niagara Parks and its partners prepare to embark on these multi-year journeys of renovation, they are asking community members to give input on the projects.
“Niagara Parks has launched public engagement exercises related to two key redevelopment projects to be undertaken over the next three years,” said Katy Wassenaar, Public Relations Manager at Niagara Parks. “[The projects include] the redevelopment and restoration of the Toronto Power Generating Station and the redevelopment of the Niagara Parks Marina.”
Residents can participate by completing two short surveys, one designated to the Toronto Power and Niagara Parks Marina, respectively. The surveys are now live and will be available on Niagara Parks’ website through Feb. 29.
“Both Toronto Power Generating Station and the Niagara Parks Marina hold strong connections to the local community and have the potential to bring new visitation to Niagara Parks, the region and the province, supporting the growth of our tourism industry and creating hundreds of jobs,” said David Adames, Chief Executive Officer of Niagara Parks. “Similarly, a key component of both projects is increasing public access and enjoyment of these sites, which underscores the importance of public input and feedback as these projects get underway.”
The Niagara Independent reached out to Fort Erie Mayor Wayne Redekop for his comments.
“The redevelopment of the Niagara Parks Marina in Fort Erie is an exciting opportunity for enhanced boating, fishing and other recreational activities for residents and tourists,” Redekop said. “This has been over two decades in the making, and I encourage residents and local stakeholders to complete the NPC’s survey and weigh in on this great project.”
