Dear Mr. Kresse
The Niagara USA Chamber of Commerce, Niagara County’s leading business advocacy organization, is pleased to support the Niagara Street Area Business and Professional Association’s proposal submitted to the Niagara Greenway Commission. Funding for this request would allow the Niagara Street Area Business and Professional Association to install a playground in Gill Creek Park.
This project has the support of the community as well as the City of Niagara Falls and the Niagara Falls City School District. They have each pledged $60,000 to this worthy project. The Niagara Street Area Business and Professional Association has continued to make improvements to this public park including lighting and landscaping, as well as various events for the public to enjoy. The Chamber feels that this funding request meets the criteria set forth by the Niagara River Greenway Commission under its concepts of stewardship, public access, recreational opportunities, and a higher quality of life for the region.
In conclusion, the Niagara USA Chamber proudly supports the Niagara Street Area Business and Professional Association’s request for funding the through the Niagara Greenway Commission. We hope you find this project as important as we do.
