State parks projects at Falls still on schedule

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Scott Lawn of Sanborn is the contractor at the Three Sisters Island projects while Mark Cerrone Inc., of Niagara Falls has the contract for the Luna Island work. Both sites have been closed to the public during various stages of that work.

Park officials said that Prospect Point overlooking the American Falls also is targeted for major improvements with the projects planned in two phases. The initial phase starting in mid-May is expected to be completed by mid-October. The second phase, including Prospect Point North (toward the Observation Tower) and the Lower Grove (the area along the American Rapids Trail) will be completed by August 2014.

Officials are confident all the work can be accomplished with minimal disruption.

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.
