Final Round of Public Meetings on Lake Ontario Plan

The Lake Ontario counties of Niagara, Orleans, Monroe, Wayne, Cayuga and Oswego, the town of Greece and the city of Oswego are jointly undertaking an update and expansion of the Lake Ontario Regional Harbor Dredging Management Plan completed in 2000.

Two Public Meetings will be held, in Orleans and Wayne counties, to review findings and receive public feedback.

The meeting in Orleans County will be 7 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the Orleans County Cooperative Extension Education Center, 12690 State Rt. 31 (4-H Fairgrounds).

The Wayne County public meeting will be held in November on a date to be announced.

This is the second and final round of public meetings before completion of the Dredging Plan. The Project Advisory Committee and its consultant will present economic impacts of business activity generated at 20 federal and non-federal harbors on Lake Ontario, review their existing conditions and need for dredging, and outline the organizational structure and long-term financing alternatives for plan implementation.

Safe navigation through the recreational harbor channels provides access to public property, fishing resources and many other water dependent recreational opportunities. These channels also provide safe harbors for regional and international tourists.

This Regional Plan will serve as a blueprint for efficient and sustainable maintenance of the harbors that are the lifeblood of the region’s coastal communities and businesses. This project is funded in part by an Environmental Protection Fund grant from the New York State Department of State.
