To: Matt Broman
From: Mr. C.E. Kaumeyer, General Manager, Niagara Falls Ontario

Mr. C.E. Kaumeyer, General Manager1
Dear Sir, [sic]
I beg to submit a Plan showing proposed layout of the entrance Park along with Driveways and Parking spaces.
With the construction of the driveway 12 to 14 feet wide and the removal of the Souvenir Store the Old Gate will be seen clearly and distinctly from the highway.
A driveway 24 feet wide by 300 ft long, leading south from the gates and a parking space for 20 cars is also shown.
Material from the excavation of parking space and driveway will be used for fill on the side of the Souvenir Store.
A flower bed 12 to 14 feet in diameter in the centre line will divert the traffic and add to the beauty of the location.
A drive way 24 feet wide and 230 feet long with a parking space for 20 cars is located below the Lodge to take the visitors of the Highway at a point shown and where they can obtain a magnificient view overlooking the river. This ground is fairly level and the paking space and driveway can be easily constructed.
A bed of short shrubs 6 to 8 feet wide is shown to divert the traffic between the highway and the parking space.
