    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Appeals against the Canadian Motor Speedway have been dismissed by a provincial planning board, paving the way for the much-anticipated project to break ground.

    The Town of Fort Erie received a decision from the Ontario Municipal Board Monday, which included some requirements and restrictions already agreed to by speedway officials and one of the primary opponents, the Citizens Coalition of Greater Fort Erie.

    “CMS is very excited about the decision by the OMB … and that the conclusion reaffirms that our project addresses and implements matters of provincial and regional interest,” said the speedway’s executive director Azhar Mohammad.

    “This will be a world-class facility that will attract visitors from all over North America. We are very anxious to begin the next steps in seeing the speedway become a reality.”

    From the Buffalo News:

    With the beginning of a new tourist season only a few months away, the owners of One Niagara plan to begin sprucing up the property as soon as next week.

    The building is in one of downtown’s most prominent locations.

    “We’re going to swing into operation right away; we’re ready to go now,” Niagara One President Tony Farina said Thursday. The city Planning Board approved a site plan for the property during a meeting Wednesday evening.

    “This is a good sign for the city. It’s very exciting, and it opens up a spark of hope for downtown Niagara Falls,” Farina said.
