GUEST VIEW: The Hamister hotel project - by the numbers

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — If we do not honor agreements and try to run developers out of town after a transparent “Request for Proposal” process, new developers will NOT knock on our door. Jobs will NOT be created, tax revenue will be lost, and land will sit vacant. But, I do not have to tell the people of Niagara Falls this in words. We have lived that disappointing reality of land speculation and disinvestment for the past 40 years. Finally, real, reputable investment is happening and commerce is moving. Projects are getting completed, and we see true progress. Do we really want to ruin the development of 310 Rainbow Blvd. and take a huge step backward?
