The Friends of One Mile Creek (FOMC) welcomes the appointment by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) of Gayle Wood as Interim Chief Administrative Officer/Secretary-Treasurer effective March 1, 2019. Wood was appointed by the newly installed NPCA board of directors for a term of 5 months, while the board searches for a permanent CAO with the help of an external hiring firm.
Landowners abutting One Mile Creek and other interested individuals formed the Friends of One Mile Creek (FOMC) in 2003 because of concerns regarding the condition of the creek and associated Lansdowne Pond. Working with the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA), the group has implemented a number of stewardship projects to revitalize the creek’s natural heritage.
One Mile Creek is located within the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) with its outlet about 1.6 kilometres (1 mile) to the west of where the Niagara River flows into Lake Ontario. Following the gentle natural contours of the land, One Mile Creek meanders through the Old Town neighbourhoods before pooling in Lansdowne Pond to reach the outlet to Lake Ontario.
