A Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Study has been initiated for Lundy's Lane. The study area extends from Drummond Road to west of Garner Road, the limit of the City's Urban Area Boundary.
The commercial corridor that is Lundy's Lane dates back to the 1780's when William Lundy, a Loyalist, immigrated to Upper Canada with his family and settled on 50 acres of land in Stamford Township. He opened a road that followed a First Nations trail which was declared a public road in 1803. Over the past two centuries, Lundy's Lane evolved together with the City of Niagara Falls to become one of the City's major east/west arteries and one of its gateways. Tourism and commercial development was at its high point in the mid-20th century. Since then, with the changes in the tourism market, both locally and internationally, and economic fluctuations, Lundy's Lane has seen a decline in activity and development. The Lundy's Lane BIA is seeking ways to stimulate revitalization and spur economic redevelopment. To this end, the City and Niagara Region have commissioned the MMM Group to prepare a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for the area.
The CIP Study is being carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Planning Act.
