Memorial facility slated for former Evelyn Apartments now heading to Highland Avenue


Niagara Gazette —

The proposed Highland Avenue health center would be the same size as the one that was drawn up for the Memorial corridor - 23,000 sq. ft. -  but would have an expanded list of health services including dental, medical, radiological and pharmaceutical services, Bates said.

The center now operating out of the Mizer building is the first federally qualified health center — a clinic that takes patients regardless of their income or insurance status — in Niagara County.

"We believe that this project will enhance the community as well as enhance a much needed service to the neighbors of Niagara Falls," Bates said.

Tom DeSantis, the city's senior planner, said that the site is one of many in the north side that the city has considered using for development over the years, but never made progress.

"We're happy that somebody is interested in developing anywhere in the city, particularly in one of the areas that is most desperate for development," DeSantis said. "The planning office is, obviously, happy to make these sites available."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
