On May 11, the NFTA closed on the Outer Harbor property. This includes the Boat Harbor, Gallagher Beach and the vacant parcel north of the Bell Slip. The deed filing completed transfers ownership to Erie Canal Harbor Development Corp. We will continue to operate the Boat Harbor this season until November 15th after which time operations will be transferred to New York State Parks Department.
I wish to thank all of those involved. I appreciate your hard work, dedication and perseverance. I particularly appreciate those working at the Boat Harbor to help make this another great season. This will help for a smooth transition. Change is never easy but this will be good for the NFTA, allowing us to focus on our core mission of providing safe, efficient and professional transportation services that enhance the quality of life in the Buffalo Niagara region.
