NIAGARA FALLS —

Locally, the tourism industry in Buffalo Niagara employs more than 50,000 people and creates an approximately $2.2 billion annual economic impact.

Tuesday's announcement focused on outdoor adventure tourism, one of the two promising aspects of local tourism, the press release said.

"This investment will focus specifically on Buffalo's tourism assets, and transforming a part of the city to better attract visitors and drive local development and job growth," Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy said. "Today's announcement exemplifies the state-local coordination that has become a hallmark of this administration: the Regional Economic Development Councils bringing together community leaders to guide the state's investment where it can best serve the people of Buffalo and grow the economy of Western New York."
