Mayoral appointments change face of Village of Lewiston planning commission


Niagara Gazette — Making a project like the Frontier House restoration possible will require public support. To determine if enough exists, the village board and the Historical Association of Lewiston have been circulating petitions both online and at various village businesses.

Leandra Collesano, the mayor's daughter, was recently appointed to help lead the charge as a member of the newly formed Frontier House Restoration Committee. Vacant for almost 10 years, the structure, built in 1824, could be the recipient of grant money for rehabilitation if the village is able to secure the building, she said.

The online version of the petition, available at, has received almost 350 signatures since it went live Saturday, while other physical petitions have been available as well throughout the village.

"(It's) all very exciting stuff, but still a lot of ifs," she said via Facebook. "I'm feeling pretty good about the whole thing, though. Finally."
