Saving Wilderness important for future generations
My hope is that the Niagara Foundation is able to proceed with its proposal to purchase half The Wilderness and its wooded property in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The foundation has done some terrific work in Niagara, both in preserving buildings of historic value and for keeping development at bay.
I have read about the issue facing the town with the historic Randwood Estate, and also of the City of Niagara Falls apparently approving plans to develop in the Thundering Waters area, despite huge opposition. The name change to Riverfront Community is just a name change. Nothing has changed except development all the time.
Having been one of the lucky few to have visited The Wilderness, as it was the home of a colleague, I have always hoped that this property could be successfully repurposed, but also be open to the public in some form. Who better to do that than The Niagara Foundation? It would be to the benefit of all of us and successive generations.
