NCIDA: Board approves request for $16,767 to support improvement project.
The Aquarium of Niagara will receive a little help from the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency as they undertake a renovation of their second-story event space.
On Wednesday, the NCIDA board approved a resolution for the aquarium’s request for $16,767 in funding to assist with some of the improvements, according to a project summary from the county’s Cataract Tourism Fund, which has already approved the project.
The renovations will cost about $85,000 total, the aquarium said. Once completed, the project is expected to result in the creation of two new full-time jobs.
“The event room renovation will enhance the aquarium’s ability to welcome visitors, school children and local families,” said Gary Siddall, Executive Director of the Aquarium of Niagara, in a press release issued Wednesday. “The start of yet another capital improvement project is a clear indication of sustained growth and a new trajectory for the Aquarium of Niagara.”
