Niagara Gazette — It's also extremely difficult for school districts to successfully receive a consistent rating from the commission based solely on the fact few schools have any location along the waterfront. Districts also don't have the ability to create parks or manage greenspace for the public good.
Daly said the commission knows these project requests from school districts won't ever stick entirely to what has been laid out and that it should matter what districts like Lew-Port intend to do with the money.
"It's never a secret what projects these district's will pursue," he said. "They can only use the money to improve their buildings. I believe it fits the goals of this commission."Contact reporter Timothy Chipp at 282-2311, ext. 2251 or follow on Twitter @timchipp.
