New plan for old Falls school building

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — He stressed there is ample time for community input to be taken into account as the project moves forward, noting that any deal is contingent upon the company acquiring the building from its owner, the Niagara Falls School District. The sale of the district building will require approval through a public referendum, which Piccirillo said is not expected to be scheduled for at least several months.

In the meantime, Piccirillo said the city is interested in seeing the project move ahead, if possible, in large part because the building, which has been vacant and subject to water damage for several years, is now in a serious state of disrepair.

“The inside of the building is in a state of decay,” Piccirillo said. “I would say this is a tipping-point building.”

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.
