Grimsby Open Forum – Niagara Escarpment Plan Featured

The Grimsby Community Open Forum (Friday, June 15) was an excellent time of conversation and exchange of information and ideas! Members who attended were treated to a presentation by Nancy Mott and John Stuart of the Niagara Escarpment Commission, who spoke at length about the Niagara Escarpment plan and the development permit process.

In response to members’ interest in learning more about the Niagara Escarpment Plan, the Niagara Escarpment Commission, the process for obtaining development permits, and the escarpment itself, we are providing links to additional information for the benefit of all members.
