Assemblyman John D. Ceretto, R-I-Lewiston, met Tuesday with consultants from the Urban Land Institute to offer his insight to redevelopment options for the Rainbow Centre Mall in downtown Niagara Falls.
"The redevelopment of the Rainbow Centre property should strongly focus on private sector opportunities," Ceretto said. "This property is in prime location; adjacent to one of the great wonders of our world ... Niagara Falls. Tourism is up, the spotlight is back on Niagara Falls after the Wallenda walk, and we must capitalize. It is my hope this property will become a big part of downtowns' turnaround. To do that, it must capture the tourist market, while putting people to work and make developers on every level realize that Niagara Falls is a growing and attractive market."
