  • Notice of Refusal (Revised) City File: AM-2018-028

    Description

    The applicant proposed a 6 storey, mixed use commercial and residential building. The purpose and effect of the requested application was to amend the Official Plan to provide a density of 134 units/ha and amend the zoning by-law to allow: a height of 21.6 metres; a parking ratio of 1.25 spaces per dwelling unit; 97.2% of the gross floor area to be used for residential puposes; balconies to project 1.1 metres and limit the commercial gross floor area to 175.0 sq.metres.

    Council considered the requested zoning amendment at a public meeting held August 13, 2019. Council refused to give approval to the requested zoning amendment after considering staff's report, agency comments and public comments. Council was of the opinion that the proposed development was too high, had too many units and would increase traffic volumes.

  • Hydrant Flushing Mid to Late Summer 2019

    Description

    The City of Niagara Falls will be continuing the watermain/fire hydrant flushing program during the mid to late summer months.  This is performed as part of a scheduled preventative maintenance program to help maintain good water quality and to improve water flow in your neighbourhood. The flushing is currently taking place in the area bordered by Dorchester Road, Thorold Stone Road, Garner Road and the City's north boundary (see map for further detail). If you reside in this area, you may notice a temporary decrease in your water pressure, and may experience discoloured water.  If discolouration occurs, running a cold water tap closest to your water meter for a short period of time should alleviate the problem. Should you have any questions, concerns or persistent issues, please contact the Municipal Service Centre at 905-356-1355. The City’s Annual Water Report can be viewed online at www.niagarafalls.ca or in person at the Municipal Service Centre at 3200 Stanley Ave.

  • Annual Plum Pox Virus Survey - Canadian Food Inspection Agency

    Description

    On May 26th, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) initiated the annual summer residential survey for the Plum Pox Virus (PPV), which is a serious disease of plants that threatens Canada's stone fruit industry.  Portions of the Niagara Region and the City of Hamilton are currently under federal quarantine for PPV and regulations are in place to prevent the spread of this pest outside of this area.   

    In order to conduct the survey, CFIA Inspectors will be going door-to-door to sample PPV-susceptible plant species and/or verify compliance with the current propagation ban, which prohibits anyone in the quarantine area from producing trees and plants that are susceptible to the virus.  The survey will be conducted within the cities of Stoney Creek, Lincoln, Grimsby, Beamsville, Vineland, Jordan, St. Catharines, Thorold, Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake and will conclude by the end of September 2019.  This means that property owners in these cities may see CFIA inspectors on their property.  CFIA staff will have CFIA identification badges and will wear an orange safety vest so that they are easily identifiable to city staff and members of the public. 

    Please click the link for the public notice.

    A pest fact sheet and additional information on PPV is available on the CFIA website:

  • Temporary Closure - Millennium Trail from Whirlpool Rd to Thorold Stone Rd

    Description

    The Millennium Trail from Whirlpool Road to Thorold Stone Road will have limited access during select periods this summer.

    Stanley Transmission Station (TS) is owned by Hydro One Networks Inc. and situated on Ontario Power Generation property on Stanley Avenue, immediately south of the Region of Niagara Waste Water Treatment Station.  The City of Niagara Falls Millennium Trail, including its access points from Stanley Avenue are located on all sides of the Stanley TS enclosure and is pursuant to a license agreement with OPG.

    Hydro One must undertake work at Stanley Transmission Station (TS) that will expand the footprint of the TS enclosure. Therefore public access between the TS and the OPG Power Canal must be restricted until this work is completed.

    The trail will be closed during these dates:

    August 18, 2019 to August 23, 2019 in order to string new conductors.

    September 23, 2019 to September 27, 2019 in order to remove the old conductors.

    During these identified times of disruption, Hydro One will have spotters on either side of the trail as the conductors are moved to ensure the safety of the public.  

    Hydro One will provide signs regarding the closure and post them on the construction fence.

    Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this work.

    If you have any questions please contact Nick Golia, Project Manager at 905-356-7521 ext. 4290.

    • Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 - Project Update

      Description

      City of Niagara Falls Staff has been actively coordinating with both the Region of Niagara and the Ontario Power Generation (O.P.G.) on all projects earmarked for construction through the existing O.P.G Hydro Canal Corridor.  Unfortunately, the complexity of these projects and contractor scheduling has postponed the construction of the Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 to late spring-early summer of 2019.

      Currently O.P.G.’s General Contractor Newman Bros. Limited has commenced with the new fence installation along the hydro canal between Drummond Road and Dorchester Road with anticipated completion for early October 2018.  The Region of Niagara is finalizing the procurement and awarding of a contractor to complete a Rehabilitation of the Stamford Interceptor that runs along the same O.P.G. Hydro Corridor.  The Regional work is proposed to follow the O.P.G fence installation.

      Later this Fall (2018) Staff propose tendering the Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 including the connection to the Paisley Janvary Pool Pathway Trail along the Drummond Road and Morrison Street Right-of-Way.  Staff anticipates the construction for the Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 to be completed in summer of 2019.  The property will remain closed to the Public as it currently is until that time.

      Should you have any comments or questions regarding the Millennium Recreational Trail Section 5 Project please feel free to contact the undersigned.

      Yours truly,
