From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:
Leaders in Niagara Falls want to build a new convention and event center downtown. The center would be much larger than the current one on Old Falls Street. Officials say they’re currently waiting for the state to sign off on a feasibility study.
New York State Asemblyman John Ceretto said, “Once they approve it, which I hope is soon, it will go to the power proceed board and they will allocate the funding and our estimate is, we are talking about $150,000 for a study. We are not talking about a huge amount of money.”
Before 2002, the City of Niagara Falls had a much larger convention center, which is now the Seneca-Niagara Casino. The replacement for the old convention center on Old Falls Street is much smaller.
