    No Comments

    From the Niagara Gazette:

    Niagara Falls Redevelopment.

    For many years, candidates seeking elected office in the city of Niagara Falls have been asked how they would advise the city to deal with the company which, through its various affiliates, owns more than 400 parcels of prime real estate near the heart of downtown.

    This year’s crop of mayoral candidates and city council hopefuls generally agree more needs to be done from the city’s end to spur action within NFR’s development territory.

    The majority also said they would support a direct approach — simply sitting down with owner Howard Milstein or his associates and discussing why more hasn’t happened on NFR land and what more can be done from the city’s end to help move things along.

    The following are full responses provided by Anthony Bergamo, chief executive officer of Niagara Falls Redevelopment, to questions from The News last week.
