Primate sanctuary still up for debate in Wilson


Niagara Gazette — Presti smiled when he heard the words of support from the young men and women.

John Chinachla of Youngstown-Olcott came to bat twice and concluded, “None have the interest the neighbors have.”

What’s next? According to Larry “Red” Banks, the town building inspector, he will call Presti’s lawyer and town experts to make sure they are on the same page. 

The town board has called a special meeting May 1. The first step in the process is to declare the Town of Wilson the lead agency in the review. The town will send the application for the primate sanctuary to the Niagara County Planning Board.

If there is a negative declaration, the zoning board can approve the appeals.

“I don’t know if anything that happened tonight changed anything,” Banks said.  

One resident claimed to have the simple solution. Put the primate sancturary at NCCC.
