The Niagara River Greenway Commission is responsible for carrying out the Niagara River Greenway Plan that will define the future of the Niagara River Corridor. We do this by accepting, reviewing and awarding funds for proposed projects taking place in or around the Greenway Focus Area shown below. The Greenway Commission reviews proposed projects brought forth to them on the basis of its operating principles, goals and criteria. Project proposals are expected to provide sufficient documentation so that members of the Commission will be able to determine if the project is consistent with the Niagara River Greenway Plan.
