NFTA requests proposals, delays land transfer
The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority has requested development proposals for its outer harbor lands delaying the transfer of ownership.
The delay was criticized by Representative Brian Higgins as unnecessary. Higgins claims that transferring the nearly 400 acres now to the Erie Canal harbor Development Corporation or the City of Buffalo will maintain the momentum of development that has been established.
The delay means that the transfer will not take place until January or February.
