The action involves the adoption of the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area Management Plan by the City of Niagara Falls.

The Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area, as defined in Article 35 (Section 35.03) of the New York State Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation Law, includes the entirety of the municipal limits of the City of Niagara Falls, located in Niagara County, New York (see attached Map 2 from the Heritage Area Management Plan). The Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area represents a partnership between the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, the City of Niagara Falls, and local stakeholders, under the guidance of the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area Commission.

The purpose of the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area Management Plan is to identify, communicate and celebrate resources within the Heritage Area associated with historic and contemporary experiences with the Underground Railroad. The Commission seeks to engage strategic partners throughout the community in developing these resources into a cultural and educational resource of international renown. Working with a team of project consultants and local stakeholders, the Commission has crafted the plan as an initial step to direct the establishment, management, and future operations of the Heritage Area. In keeping with all New York State Heritage Areas, the four main goals of the Plan are historic preservation, interpretation and education, recreation, and economic revitalization through heritage tourism.

The project is located throughout the City of Niagara Falls, New York.
