Note: The Riverfront Community Official Plan Amendment Application applies to a portion of the lands formerly referred to as the Thundering Waters Secondary Plan Area.
The City has received an application of behalf of GR (CAN) Investments to amend the Official Plan for a development proposal called Riverfront Community. The OPA is to amend the land use designations and Special Policy Area to include a policy framework and schedules to permit a mixed use development.
The Council for the City of Niagara Falls passed By-law 2018-76 to adopt Official Plan Amendment No. 128 for the Riverfront Community Plan on July 10, 2018.
*Please note that the decision of Council has been appealed to the Local Planning Area Tribunal and is therefore not final until the appeal has been resolved.
