From the 376-page illustrated report's Introduction:
The North Tonawanda Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) is an approximately 546 acre area located along the Niagara River and Erie Canal in the City of North Tonawanda, encompassing all of Tonawanda Island, the Little River and the majority of the City’s historic downtown core. The City and BOA are also located at the western gateway to the Erie Canal, and are within short distances to Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and Ontario, Canada. The study area includes a variety of waterfront, industrial, commercial, and retail land uses. In addition, the BOA is home to some of the City’s primary cultural and natural resources, most notably 15,000 feet of waterfront along the Niagara River and 3,500 feet of the New York State Erie Canal.
This document is a summary of the full Nomination Study, which includes the detailed analysis and Master Plan for the North Tonawanda BOA. The Nomination Study is a framework to guide public and private investment within the Study Area, including the rehabilitation of vacant, underutilized and/or contaminated sites, the enhancement of parkland, and the efficient utilization and reinvestment in the City’s wealth of infrastructure.
