North End Community Center RFQ Released

North End Center Project Moves Forward

Responses due on February 28, 2019

The Niagara Falls Community Development Department (NFCD) is releasing a Request for Proposals (RFQ) for the creation and operation of a community center in the city’s north end neighborhood. Project funding is available from a United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Responses are due at 12 pm on February 28, 2019 via email to jarret.steffen@niagarafallsny.gov

 The creation of a north end community center has been long discussed, with the public voting for this project during the NFCD Participatory Budgeting Process (PB360) in 2018. PB360 is a democratic decision-making process of direct citizen engagement to manage public money, built through neighborhood meetings and voting. “We are excited to move the community center project forward, led by public participation and continuing our commitment to family-friendly activities,” said Seth Piccirillo, Director of Niagara Falls Community Development.
