Aside from the capital construction costs, there are yearly operating expenses that the Lockport Locks Heritage District Corporation (LHDC) faces. The LHDC has taken on the City of Lockport’s obligation to maintain and operate the rehabilitated Flight of Five Locks. In addition, there are annual operating expenses, including liability insurance, Lock Tender uniforms, and marketing and advertising costs.

The Lockport area business community, recognizing the tremendous opportunity to economically revitalize Lockport’s historic canal corridor, has responded generously in donating to the Annual Locks District Appeal to provide funds to pay for the operation and maintenance costs involved. Many of those businesses are listed below. The Locks District also benefits from the donations of local residents so that the weekly Locks Demonstrations can be offered to the public free of charge.
