    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Niagara Falls Illumination Board will officially unveil its enhanced falls illumination project at a lighting ceremony, Dec. 1.

    The $4-million revitalization project uses the latest technology to light the Horseshoe and American Falls.

    The new system will provide twice the current lighting levels and allow for a full palette of colour combinations that wasn’t available in the past.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The city is moving ahead with planning for phase two of the streetscape revitalization along Victoria Avenue.

    Council approved $365,000 for engineering design work for the next phase, and city staff will prepare construction cost estimates for council’s consideration in the 2017 budget.

    The first phase — a $3.8-million revitalization from Highway 420 to Clifton Hill/Centre Street — began in the spring and is expected to be completed by early December.

    Work stopped during July and August to not disrupt the busy tourism season, and resumed after Labour Day.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Council approved an additional $230,000 to complete the first phase of a streetscape project along Victoria Avenue.

    The extra expense will come out of the city’s capital holding reserve fund and will address unanticipated intersection work, as well as additional consultant services.

    Earlier this year, council entered into a cost-sharing arrangement with the Victoria Centre Business Improvement Association for a $3.8-million revitalization from Highway 420 to Clifton Hill/Centre Street. The city agreed to a strict construction timeline, at the request of the BIA.

    Construction began this spring, but stopped during July and August to not disrupt the busy tourism season. Work is scheduled to resume after Labour Day, and is expected to be mostly completed by November.
