Town of Porter Local Waterfront Revitalization Program


The Town of Porter Local Waterfront Revitalization Program consists of a locally prepared comprehensive land and water use plan for the Town's natural, public, and developed waterfront resources along the Niagara River and Lake Ontario, and the associated local laws, regulations and management structure that help the town implement its approved LWRP. In addition to providing a comprehensive framework within which critical waterfront issues can be addressed, and planned waterfront improvement projects can be pursued and implemented, the LWRP identifies 14 specific projects that will help the town to become more resilient. The proposed projects protect water quality, address shoreline erosion, educate residents and visitors about local environmental issues, and provide for improved public access to local and regional trails and the town’s Porter on the Lake Park.

Town of Porter is an area rich in historical heritage, agricultural tradition, and small businesses. It was formed on June 1, 1812, by an act of the New York State Legislature.

The approval history of the incorporation of the approved Town of Porter LWRP into the New York State Coastal Management Program can be found in the final public notice published in the New York State Register on June 1, 2022.
