The Niagara River Greenway Staff and Commissioners work to fulfill the Niagara River Greenway Plan through review of proposed projects, stewardship programs, community events, collaboration with municipalities and organizational partners. Our goal is to create a world class trail and greenspace network that communities can be proud of and cherish for generations to come.
Honoring Richard Soluri
On March 9th, during the business meeting of the Niagara River Greenway Commission, Greg Stevens presented Commissioner Richard Soluri with a plaque recognizing his years of dedicated service, as he retires from the Commission and his most recent position as Chairman.
The former Mayor of Lewiston and Niagara River Greenway Commission has spent decades serving the residents of Niagara County and will be greatly missed by the NRG Commission.
At this same meeting, the Commissioners welcomed the newest appointed member, Erie County Legislator, Lisa Chimera. Congratulations to both Richard and Lisa!
NortherN Niagara Regional Trail Network
On February 26th, the Northern Niagara Regional Trail Network (NNRTN) signed a memorandum of understanding to work together to establish a trail system that will create a 35 mile long trail from Lewiston to Lockport along the Lake Ontario shoreline.
The network includes The Village and Town of Lewiston, the City and Town of Lockport, the Village and Town of Wilson, Youngstown, Porter, Newfane, Somerset and Barker. Under the MOU, these communities will share a vision to connect individual existing trails in each of the municipalities into significant multi-use trails which will create connections for the Ontario Shoreline Trail, Erie Canalway and connecting ultimately to the recently completed Empire State Trail.
