Theatre proposal would impact view of falls
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission (OLG) is expected to announce the winning proposal for a new 5,000-seat theatre next month, but one of the submissions already has the city concerned.
City staff is recommending council not support a proposal which will see the theatre built above the current bus area at the back of Fallsview Casino because its height will obstruct views of the falls for nearby hotels.
The report, to be discussed at Tuesday’s council meeting, says “the loss of rooms with views of the falls could have a financial impact on hotel revenue, and perhaps value and assessment which has an impact on the municipal tax base.”
