LEWISTON—The New York Power Authority (NYPA) announced today it will host a meeting of the four Greenway Fund Standing Committees established by the Niagara Power Project Relicensing Settlement Agreements. The meeting will be on Friday, August 3 at 10am and will be held in the Power Vista, the visitors center on the grounds of the Niagara Power Project.

The meeting agenda includes discussion of Standing Committee Protocols and information required for Greenway project proposals. Standing Committees determine whether, and at what level, proposed Greenway projects will be funded.  The meeting is open to the public.

The draft Protocols will guide Standing Committee decision-making and are based on Settlement Agreement commitments made by NYPA and its settlement partners. The Protocols detail such topics as committee membership, meeting requirements, committee authority and obligation, and fund disbursements.
