Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan

The Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan (LWRP), or waterfront plan, is a community-driven document that provides guidance on future policies, projects, and actions specifically related to the waterfront.  The original plan was developed in 1986 and updated in 1991; many changes have taken place since that time and the City desires to take a proactive approach by developing a solid plan for the future of the waterfront.   Although the Niagara River is the most prominent feature, this plan also includes Two Mile Creek, Tonawanda Creek/Erie Canal, and Ellicott Creek.  Funding for the update to the plan was provided by a grant from the New York State Department of State under the Environmental Protection Fund.

  • Steering Committee Overview
Although the development of the Plan is being done by a team of outside planning consultants, the City has put together a Steering Committee to manage and provide oversight to the project, review the work prepared by the consultant team, and act as a liaison to the wider Tonawanda community.  The Committee members were appointed by City Council and are made of up representatives from City Hall, Planning Board, Zoning Board, Erie County, Council, Engineering, Code Enforcement, business owners, and residents.   Consulting services are being lead through Clark Patterson Lee (http://www.clarkpattersonlee.com/).
