HIGHLAND NEIGHBORHOOD: Officials push brownfield meeting

Officials in Niagara Falls say they're ready. They're hoping North End 
residents are as well.

"I think there's tremendous potential for this community to grow," said 
Willie Dunn, executive director of the Highland Community Revitalization 
Committee. "We want residents to galvanize as a community group and say 
what they would like to see happening."

Dunn was discussing the Highland Avenue neighborhood, specifically the 
$400,000 state grant the city has received for a plan and implementation 
strategy to turn the area's numerous brownfields into viable, 
environmentally friendly businesses.

But the grant, part of the Brownfield Opportunity Area program, won/t 
work unless the community gets involved.
