Shoreline trail feasibility study public workshops look at connecting Lewiston to Youngstown
The Niagara River Greenway Commission, in collaboration with New York State Parks Niagara Region, has hired Bergmann, in conjunction with ALTA Planning + Design, to prepare conceptual design alternatives for extending the shoreline trail from Artpark in the Village of Lewiston to Four Mile Creek State Park in the Town of Porter.
The public is invited to attend upcoming meetings to learn more about the status of the project – including proposed concepts – and share feedback on design alternatives.
Meeting details are included below:
•Public workshop No. 1
2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8
Artpark, 450 S. Fourth St., Lewiston
This meeting will be held outdoors, unless weather prohibits. Bring a chair.
•Public workshop No. 2
6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8
Lewiston Senior Center, 4361 River Road
Due to guidelines in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, upcoming meetings will be limited to 45 people, and face masks will be required when social distancing is not possible. All individuals interested in attending either meeting must RSVP on the project website:
Both meetings will include a brief presentation by the consultant team, followed by an opportunity to weigh in on design alternatives by providing feedback at interactive workshop stations.
In addition to the meetings noted above, a “pop-up” open house will be held at Falkner Park in the Village of Youngstown from 4:30-5:30 p.m. It will include a series of informational and interactive feedback boards, although a formal presentation will not be provided. If it is raining, the “pop-up” will be moved to the Town of Porter Municipal Building at 3265 Creek Road, Youngstown.
