Region seeks public input on airport involvement

​NIAGARA REGION, May 26, 2016 - Niagara Region is seeking public input into the potential future involvement of the Region in Niagara`s two existing municipally-funded airports. The Region is exploring options following separate requests from several local municipalities and the airport commissions to consider financial and operational involvement in Niagara’s airports.

Residents can provide their thoughts on a possible Regional role at the airports through an online survey or by attending one of the three public information meetings being offered.

Public Information Meetings will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the following locations:

May 30
Port Colborne
Port Colborne Library
310 King St.

June 1
Hilton Garden Inn
500 York Rd.

Niagara has two municipally-funded airports, the Niagara Central Dorothy Rungeling Airport, located at 435 River Rd. in Pelham, and the Niagara District Airport on 468 Niagara Stone Rd. in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Residents can learn more about the study and provide their input through an online survey
