Not just for Easter Shopping
Lots planned for the city's Broadway Market.
A new floor is coming; so is a community kitchen that can be used for lessons, but also could be used by entrepreneurs needing a commercial kitchen.
There's also talk of keeping the market open one night a week, and hopes of one day taking the awning and other facade work off the front of the building and restoring its 1956 look.
That's all according to Kathleen Peterson, the city's market manager, who appeared before a Council Committee Tuesday. Peterson has worked with the city's economic development office for the past six years, spending half her work day focused on the Broadway Market and the rest of her work day on other issues. As of Aug. 3, she's full-time on the Broadway Market.
"It's the city's public market," Peterson said. "It needs a little loving care."
How'd you do?
Answers to yesterday's photo game:
From left to right:
Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster, Dunkirk Mayor Willie Rosas, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, and Jeff Beam, not a current mayor. He's managing director of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and was in town to give Brown the Small Business Advocates Award the Buffalo mayor is holding in the picture. Beam is the former mayor of Fitchburg, Mass.
Congrats to all who got the right answers..
For those who didn't, not to worry. You'll do better next time.
