    Redesigning around GO

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    In addition to the economic, real-estate and quality-of-life benefits year-round GO train service is expected to bring to Niagara Falls when it arrives in 2023, it also provides an opportunity to redevelop the area surrounding the downtown station.

    Denise Landry, a planner with Niagara Region, presented council with an update on the Niagara Falls GO hub and transit station study project Tuesday evening.

    The purpose of the study is to prepare key deliverables for each station area in Niagara, such as the VIA rail station on Bridge Street in downtown Niagara Falls.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara’s latest attempt at a local TV station has faded to black — at least for now.

    Niagara News TV president Frank Thibault said the St. Catharines-based station suspended operations Monday, putting 17 people out of work.

    “We’re trying to figure out a way to come back,” said Thibault, who added investors will meet Saturday to discuss a possible fall relaunch. “But we had to let the staff go … we don’t know for sure how this is going to play out.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Executives behind a new Niagara-based television station say the news, sports and weather-focused channel will fill a void in the region.

    Called Niagara News TV, the St. Paul St.-based station will run nightly newscasts from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. from Monday to Friday, and paid programming and regular news updates the rest of the time.

    The television station — broadcast on channel 556 — will be beamed into the homes of 55,000 Cogeco digital subscribers in the region starting Monday at 6 p.m.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Wanted: Niagara Falls residents with a video camera to help capture the essence of their community on tape and share it with a large audience of public television viewers across Ontario and Western New York.

    No experience necessary.

    WNED Buffalo/Toronto has selected the Cataract City as the subject of the next in its series of Our Town documentaries.

    The show is intended to be a one-hour “video scrapbook” of the people, places and happenings in Niagara Falls as seen through the eyes of the people who live here.

    The station is looking to recruit 20-25 residents who have access to video camcorders to take a lead role in the project — everything from brainstorming topics to shooting video and helping narrate the final, edited product.
