Announcements

1) Niagara County and all incorporated jurisdictions within its boundaries are participating in a local hazard mitigation plan update.  The plan is part of a federal requirement to identify hazards within the county and to explore means to reduce the risks and vulnerabilities to those hazards.  As part of the planning process, we invite all residents to participate in the planning process by taking on online survey.  The survey should not take more than 10 minutes to complete and the information we collect will help paint a better picture of the resiliency of Niagara County.

Please follow the link provided below and take a few moments to participate in the county’s hazard mitigation plan.  You will have other opportunities to provide input and comments on the plan as we move forward toward completion.  If you would like to participate in other aspects of the planning process, please provide your personal information in the last question of the survey.  If you wish to remain anonymous, you may skip the last question.

The link is live and will be available until April 30, 2014

2)The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) announced that NY Route 265 (Military Road), from Upper Mountain Road to NY Route 31 (Witmer Road), in the town of Lewiston, Niagara County is scheduled to be closed to thru-traffic beginning on Monday, March 17. Motorists will be directed to follow a posted detour using Interstate 190. Local traffic on NY Route 265 will still have access to Annover Road, Old Military Road, and North Hewitt Drive.

 This road closure is a result of the ongoing work on the NY Route 265 and I-190 bridges over the New York Power Reservoir, and will be in place for the duration of the project. The project is scheduled to be completed by winter 2015.

 Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver’s license. (map.pdf)
