    No Comments

    This isn’t exactly related to the main Niagara Falls tourism district, but if a large event is held in the region, it would certainly bring a lot of tourists.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Region has put its support behind a bid to host the 2021 Canada Summer Games.

    Council committed $85,000 Thursday to have Niagara Sport Commission develop a formal bid proposal for the two-week competition.

    The funds will allow the commission to develop preliminary and comprehensive bid proposals that, if approved by council upon completion, will be submitted for consideration.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The document that will spell out what the Niagara Parks Commission wants from a boat tour provider is on target for release in the next few weeks, says commission general manager John Kernahan.

    “It’s coming along very well. I think we’re going to be on or very close to our target of late July or early August to release the RFP (request for proposals),” Kernahan said.

    But Bill Mocsan, the consultant hired by the provincial government to help guide the parks commission through the process, wouldn’t say when the document will be issued.

    He said Monday telling The Review might allow one bidder to find out sooner than another.

    Eleven companies took part in an April session to find out more about the bidding process, though it doesn’t mean all of them will submit bids when the parks commission issues its request for proposals.
