    From the Buffalo News:

    Expansion of the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls received environmental approval Tuesday as the Town Board approved a number of resolutions that clear the way for construction to begin.

    The board, which has been reviewing the site plan and how the expansion will impact traffic, drainage, noise and air quality as well as aesthetics, voted unanimously to allow the work to start. As lead agent in the state environmental quality review process, the board had to substantiate a negative finding on the various impacts.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    After nearly 20 years of often acrimonious debate, final approval for a new bridge across the upper Niagara River is just around the corner.

    But there are a few more steps that need to be completed.

    Ron Rienas, general manager of the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority, says he believes the agency will be in a position to submit a final environmental impact statement on the expansion project to U.S. regulatory authorities for approval by year’s end.

    Before that happens, the same document will be submitted to the project’s partners, the Town of Fort Erie and the City of Buffalo, for their consideration.

    “We’re hoping to have the (final environmental impact statement) in to the (municipalities) in September and a record of decision by the end of the year,” said Rienas.
