Letter: Chautauqua ‘Friends’ team up with residents association

Dear editor:

The Friends of Ryerson Park is a very large group of NOTL residents that has identified the issues and remedies to the extensive problems in the area around Ryerson Park (during tourist season).

The Chautauqua Residents Association, which has represented the interests of residents in Chautauqua since 1952, has agreed that the Friends will lead the advocacy on all aspects of the Ryerson Park issues to the Town of Niagara on the Lake with the full support of the CRA.  

This makes great sense because the park issues and consequently participation in the Friends extends beyond strictly the Chautauqua area.  

In turn the Friends will support the work of the CRA  on other community issues where appropriate.   

John Gleddie, president of the CRA and myself, as spokesperson for the Friends, informed the lord mayor and acting CAO on Monday of the new arrangement which serves to underscore the solidarity of this storied community toward essential solutions to the critical issues confronting the vicinity of Ryerson Park.
