Commission members will develop a plan and generic environmental impact statement for the creation of the Niagara River Greenway. The plan will include the designation of the specific boundaries of the Greenway. Commission members will create an inventory of existing park and other lands under the jurisdiction of the State, while identifying other lands that can contribute to the purposes of the Greenway.
Commissioners will recommend how the Greenway could be linked to upland and interior communities to promote linkages to the river, evaluate how economic development activities in proximity to the Greenway can support and complement the Greenway, and recommend cooperative efforts with the Province of Ontario and Nation of Canada.
Commission members will identify sources of funding and ways for the Commission to work with municipal, state and federal agencies, as well as public and private corporations, not-for-profit organizations and private property owners and interests.
Commissioners will also make recommendations for the on-going operation and maintenance of the Niagara River Greenway.
