I used to live in the South End of Niagara Falls. Now I’m happy to be involved in an initiative with Niagara U, over twenty-five community partners, and a strong corps of committed residents. Rather than “stay safe” we should be saying “stay focused,” “stay involved” and “stay in it for the long haul.” Only a realistically optimistic, well-planned, collaborative effort can turn the tide, but the residents are committed, the partners are committed and NU is committed. https://news.niagara.edu/news/show/niagara-university-announces-collaborative-plan-to-revitalize-niagara-falls-south-end
