Plans for church property worry residents

Tony Mecca, a member of the Niagara Gateway Columbus Park Association and a West Side resident of 35 years, describes the environmental and social impacts of the plans to expand the Peace Bridge Plaza into the site of the former Episcopal Church Home. Episcopal Church Home and Affiliates sold the seven-acre property at 1 Massachusetts Ave. to the state last June. The state is now seeking bids to demolish the existing structures with the intent of turning the site over to the Peace Bridge authority. By Angelica Rodriguez and Brandon Waz
