Win for Western New York
December 6, 2005
Buffalo, NY—Congressman Higgins released the following statement regarding the victory for Western New York and the Buffalo waterfront on the NYPA settlement offer of $279 million over 50 years for Buffalo and Erie County:
“This settlement agreement is a win for our community and will provide major assistance to waterfront development efforts in Western New York.  This gives us the resources and local control to do what has not been done here in decades-- bring real economic and recreational opportunity to the Buffalo waterfront, part of the Power Project’s host community, which desperately deserves it.  This is a new day and a significant step forward.”
