Tue, Mar 26th 2024 03:50 pm

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Niagara River Greenway Standing Committee will meet at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, April 11, in the Castellani Building at DeVeaux Woods State Park, 3160 DeVeaux Woods Drive, Niagara Falls.

The committee will vote to approve funding for the crow’s nest expansion project being advanced by State Parks. For more information on that project, visit https://www.niagararivergreenway.com/current-projects. More information can be found at https://parks.ny.gov/newsroom/meeting-notices/.

The State Parks Standing Committee receives funds from New York Power Authority as part of a settlement agreement related to the 50-year license received by NYPA in 2007 for the operation of the Niagara Power Project. In addition to the State Parks Standing Committee, three other standing committees were created to disperse funds those groups received in other settlement agreements with NYPA (Greenway Ecological Standing Committee, Host Community Greenway Fund Standing Committee and the Buffalo and Erie County Greenway Fund Standing Committee).

The Niagara River Greenway Commission is a public benefit corporation established by Chapter 460 of the state laws of 2004 and charged with the planning and development of a greenway of interconnected parks, river access points and waterfront trails along the Niagara River from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario at the site of the historic Fort Niagara.
