Fifth session pushed back to avoid conflict with mayoral debate
The fifth session in the “Imagining A More Livable Niagara Falls” series of six focused on “Smart Growth” principles and ideas is being rescheduled. The May 30 session is being reschedule to June 4 due to a conflict with the Democratic primary mayoral debate.
“Imagining A More Livable Niagara Falls: Government & Developers Working Together,” exploring solutions for the future of the City of Niagara Falls, will take place from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, June 4, at the Niagara Falls Rail Station, 825 Depot Ave. The featured presenter will be Rocco Termini, CEO of Signature Development. Termini is known for his high-profile redevelopment and historic restoration projects in Buffalo, including the Hotel Lafayette, Distillery Lofts, and, most recently, the renaissance happening along Chandler Street in Buffalo’s Black Rock district.
Termini will discuss his experience working with government, and will be joined by an expert panel, including: Christian Campos (TM Montante Development), Anthony Vilardo (City of Niagara Falls), Zach Casale (Hunt Real Estate Capital) and Kory Schuler (Niagara USA Chamber).
“Imagining A More Livable Niagara Falls” was initiated by a group of local activists joined by the City of Niagara Falls, NYS Chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism, and Partners for a Livable Western New York. The events are designed to focus on the built environment and livability of the city, and address mobility, housing, placemaking, and the relationship between government and developers. Each program will include a panel discussion. Attendees will have an opportunity to present questions to the presenter and panelists at each session.
The upcoming program on June 6 will invite the public to be both presenter and panelist, in a community conversation about the city’s future. For more information, contact Tom Lowe at 716-286-8751 or [email protected].
