On Sept. 8, the Niagara Falls Department of Public Works installed bicycle racks funded by the Creating Healthy Places program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County.
Creating Healthy Places partnered with Mayor Paul Dyster and the City of Niagara Falls Community Development Department in May to celebrate National Bike Month and Bike to Work Week. During bike month events, city residents identified areas where they wanted the 17 new bicycle racks installed. Pine Avenue, LaSalle, local businesses, neighborhood parks and downtown attractions were identified. A total of 29 of the new racks have been installed over the past year with three more that will join projects underway in the city.
