ABOUT THE PROJECT
In 2021 the Towns of Tonawanda and Amherst came together to draft a Project Charter for the Willow Ridge and Parkview neighborhoods. With the shared goal of wanting to better serve the neighborhoods and the immediate need to improve safety along Niagara Falls Boulevard, the Willow Ridge – Parkview Action Plan is an opportunity to further connect the area and provide a framework for both near and long-term improvements.
