Congressman Brian Higgins will call for the transfer of the Outer Harbor Property currently owned by the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) to come at a cost not to exceed $2. Higgins will lay out his argument Monday morning live at 10:30.
The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA), whose primary responsibility is transportation, is currently responsible for over 384 acres of property along the Outer Harbor. The NFTA has publicly expressed interest in getting out of the waterfront business. Both Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation and the City of Buffalo have indicated interest in the property. In October the NFTA Board of Commissioners gave the two government entities until December 17, 2012 to submit proposals for the transfer and development of the property.
