    From the Buffalo News:

    An environmental group wants to use Niagara River Greenway money to develop a Niagara Gorge restoration plan that would remove the Robert Moses Parkway.

    Wild Ones Niagara, the local branch of an organization with chapters in 12 states, has sought the endorsement of the Niagara River Greenway Commission for its project in the commission’s current round of review.

    The proposal — the scope of which extends along the gorge from Main and First streets in Niagara Falls to Center Street in Lewiston — would “identify the current imbalances within the ecological and man-made environments” and “further identify transportation patterns compatible with ecological restoration,” according to the group’s application to the commission.
