Standing along the Erie Canal Commercial Slip, Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) outlined his plan for next steps in Buffalo’s waterfront development.  The Congressman formally submitted the plan to Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) after receiving Bass Pro’s July 29, 2010 letter “withdrawing from further consideration of this (Canal Side) development” and has been working on implementing components of his plan over the last several weeks.

“Western New York has an extraordinary opportunity and extraordinary resources to remake its waterfront,” said Higgins.  “By making the necessary investments in public infrastructure we set the stage for long-term private sector investment.”
