Wallenda to meet with park, city officials about performance over gorge
From the Niagara Gazette:
Nik Wallenda is scheduled to meet with state officials today to discuss the progress of his plan to perform a high-wire walk over the Niagara Gorge.
Wallenda will discuss the logistical aspects of the proposed wire walk with representatives from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, New York State Park Police and the Niagara Falls police and fire departments.
After the private meeting, Wallenda is expected to hold a press conference at 2 p.m. at the Top of the Falls Restaurant to offer an update on his plans.
“This meeting is an opportunity to discuss the logistical aspects of how Wallenda’s high-wire walk could work,” said state Sen. George Maziarz, R-Newfane, who organized the meeting. “This is a time to get questions answered and concerns addressed. I’m confident we can overcome any perceived difficulties with the walk by keeping an open dialogue and communicating our needs.”
