EDITORIAL: State parks needs to rethink police barrack's location


Niagara Gazette — Months ago, Dyster’s administration offered alternate locations, some inside city limits, to allow for the state parks police station to be built without further encumbering Gorge-front property. 

State parks forged ahead and here we are today. 

The next step will hopefully involve a more robust dialogue about the best use of property situated on the edge of the community’s best natural resource. 

In our view, that means leaving this particular piece of property alone so that it can be accessed by the public in its natural state. 

There’s plenty of other places in the Niagara Falls area to build a new parks police station.

The edge of the Niagara Gorge isn’t one of them.
