I think as far as the city is concerned, the Niagara Centre for the Arts is a done deal. The consultants (surprise!) say it would be a good idea. Now all we need is funding from the province and Ottawa.
I’m watching the presentation to City Council on the local channel right now, but I can’t find the report on the city’s website yet.
It sounds pretty good. The consultants are talking about promoting downtown on downtown’s terms. It’s not meant to compete with Fallsview Casino for Celine Dion; it’s not meant to compete with the Empire cineplex at the Pen Centre. This will be something unique in the city (and the region, I think).
