From the Niagara Falls Review:
The first in what is expected to be a multi-phase revitalization along Victoria Avenue has been approved by city council.
The city will contribute $2.9 million towards the $3.5-million phase, while the Victoria Centre BIA will contribute up to $600,000, conditional on a spring 2016 start.
In 2014, the BIA and municipal staff developed a streetscape master plan outlining improvement ideas for the district, located in the tourist area of Niagara Falls.
The plan calls for accessible sidewalks, benches, decorative lighting, street trees and landscaping, gateway features, attraction and performance space, resurfaced roadways and public washroom facilities.
