There may soon be an outlet mall near the Seneca Nation of Indians' Cattaraugus reservation.
The Senecas today released the results of a retail feasibility study for a mall in the Town of Hanover, with easy access to Thruway exit 58. It would lead to sales tax benefits for Chautauqua County and New York State.
The report was announced by Seneca Nation President Robert Odawi Porter, Seneca Council President Richard Nephew, and Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards.
As the election nears, officials are moving to upgrade ballots to meet new standards. The problems and solutions vary, including in Chautauqua County where voters will be seeing an increased type size.
Across the state, there have been problems because voters have trouble reading the ballot when the type face is small for the aging eyes of many New Yorkers.
Chautauqua has been using ballots with 8-point type, roughly the type face used on most newspaper pages. The County Board of Elections is increasing that to 11.5 point type.
