    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It has been a long-time coming.

    Businesses along Victoria Avenue say they are looking forward to the streetscape improvements approved recently by Niagara Falls city council.

    “It’s going to improve the look of the street and I’m all for it,” said Andrew Vergalito, owner of the Italian Ice Cream business on Victoria Avenue, near Highway 420.

    Victoria Avenue, from that intersection to Clifton Hill/Centre Street, will undergo a $3.5-million facelift starting in the spring.

    Council approved the project, at the request of the Victoria Centre business improvement association, during its Jan. 26 meeting.

    Have you seen the new garbage cans that are around (but not on) Clifton Hill? They look very nice.

    As I indicated, they are not on Clifton Hill. Why? Because they are put out by the Victoria Centre BIA (Business Improvement Association). This is the business group representing the operations above Clifton Hill. You can find out more about that area by visiting http://www.topofcliftonhill.com/

    From Buffalo Business First:

    Regional and provincial officials gathered in Niagara Falls, Ont., Friday morning for the ceremonial ground breaking for the city’s first convention center.

    The nearly 200,000-square-foot, $100 million center is being constructed just off of Stanley Avenue and in the shadow of some of the city’s largest hotels. Niagara Falls officials have been pressing for a convention center for more than 25 years, but the deal finally came together when private-sector interests, including Falls Management Co. LLC — operators of Casino Niagara and Fallsview Casino Resort — and the Fallsview Business Improvement Association helped fund the project. That milestone agreement helped move the center from the dream stage to reality.
