Cornwall Ontario – After former Waterfront Committee member Bill Parisien distributed a letter calling for an emergency meeting of the waterfront, a group of people came together to form POW Cornwall.
The purpose of the group is to have people in Cornwall come together to ensure that our waterfront is protected from abuse such as what happened with the Chem Tanks.
The group hopes to see the city gain control of any remaining crown waterfront lands and to ensure open public consultation before agreeing to any development.
A meeting has been called for Thursday JULY 6th, at 6:30 PM at the RCAF Wing which is on our waterfront!
The group now has a facebook page as well. LINK
POW Cornwall (Protect Our Waterfront) will be having an open public consultation about taking steps to ensure that we don’t have another Chem Tank situation on any of our waterfront property in our city. Recently a developer made a presentation to council without apparently actually having ownership or lease of waterfront lands near the marina.
The Group’s Goal is to ensure that any lands available come under City Control, and that the City of Cornwall has truly open and transparent public consultations prior to any development or rezoning to ensure the best results of any uses of those lands for the ratepayers of the City of Cornwall.There will be an official petition and sheets available for those that wish to collect more signatures.The meeting will take place on our Waterfront jewel, the RCAF Wing 424, at 240 Water Street on Thursday July 6th at 6:30PM.
The group will be initiating a petition, copies of which can be picked up at the meeting.
