chedoke_golf.jpg

Do you have ideas for the future of Chedoke Golf Course Land?  The City wants to hear from you!

The City is collecting ideas about what the community would like to see on the Chedoke Land.  When submitting ideas, please keep in mind, the lands that make up Chedoke golf course are deemed “protected” by the Niagara Esparment Commission as denoted on the diagram below.  There are no immediate plans for changes, the City is collecting feedback. 

This “protected” designation limits the ability for development that on the site but based on the City’s discussion with the Niagara Escarpment Commission, they would be open to a modest 20-25% increase in the footprint of the existing club house and parking lot.
