Parkway removal project heads to Washington

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — In a release issued this week, Ceretto said he’s pressing state officials to come to a swift agreement on the final redesign, noting that “every day that passes without breaking ground” is another day Niagara Falls “does not get to reap economic benefits of a redeveloped waterfront.”

“We have spent a lot of time discussing how we are going to redesign the Robert Moses Parkway and how we are going to pay for it,” Ceretto said in the release from his office. “I fear that we are suffering from ‘analysis paralysis’ that is stopping any meaningful action from happening. It is time to come to a final agreement on a redevelopment plan and complete the project. The sooner this happens, the sooner we can open the waterfront to commercial development.”

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.
