MAKE NEW NIAGARA BRIDGE MEASURE UP TO ITS SETTING

Perhaps it's time to begin thinking smart. The proposed Niagara River twin span has little resemblance to the original Peace Bridge. The only result of this plan will be a symbol of our unwillingness as a community to move forward instead of backward, or even sideways.

Buffalo is truly a wonderful place. This fact is most recognized not by those who remain here, but by those who travel abroad and compare.

Consider the Lake Erie waterfront and Niagara River; the colorful art scene, great restaurants, music, theater and entertainment district; our close proximity to Niagara Falls, Chautauqua and Canada; or our skiing, snow, professional sports and green suburbs. These are just a few of the things that make the area such an interesting and fun place to live.

Why not add flavor to our local culture and build a signature bridge? Is your answer an optimistic one that will support our region and move it forward? If not, why not?
