Falls OKs $80K in grants for Third Street projects


Niagara Gazette —

Schoepflin said the state’s investments in Third Street have always been part of a long-term plan to revive the business district after the meeting.

“Third Street has been an ongoing work in progress,” Schoepflin said.

Schoepflin said while there have been success stories in the district over the years there has never been such a concentrated investment.

“Each one project is beneficial to the community on its own,” Schoepflin said. “But when you put three or four of them together it’s significantly more impactful because you get such a more profound effect physically and, I think, psychologically for the community.”

The board also approved a $10,000 Micro Enterprise Grant for Outer Beauty Salon and Boutique owned by Deanna Kindron who plans to purchase equipment and make improvements at her Buffalo Avenue business.



Big Red Number $80K Amount granted by NFC Development Corp., to four separate Third Street projects.

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.
