The City of Niagara Falls has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to address issues related to basement and surface flooding, degraded water quality, stream erosion and aquatic habitat. The study area includes both the urban and rural areas within the City boundary
This project will follow the Master Plan process (Approach #1) as defined by the Municipal Engineers Association's guidelines set out in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment October 2000, as amended in 2007 & 2011). The Class EA process includes public and review agency consultation, identification of a problem or opportunity, development and evaluation of alternatives, an assessment of the impacts of the proposed improvements on the environment, and identification of measures to mitigate any adverse impacts identified.
Public input and comments are invited for incorporation into the various phases of this project. Comments received from the public will be considered in the development of the alternatives.
The Class EA process includes public and review agency consultation, evaluation of alternatives, impact assessment of proposed alternatives, and identification of measures to mitigate adverse impacts.
A Public Information Centre has been planned to: define existing issues and opportunities; present existing conditions for stormwater infrastructure and environmental conditions; present a long list of alternatives that address existing issues & outline subsequent steps in the process. The time and location of the Public Information Centre is provided below.
How do I get involved?
Residents are invited to attend a Public Information Centre to learn more about the project, meet the project team and provide input into the process.
