As part of our Ask Jim! feature we encourage you to ask me a question. I’ll do my best to answer! Post your question on the Ask Jim! page: http://jimdiodati.ca/ask-jim/
The last decade has seen a steady decline in revenue and tourists for Niagara Falls. Should your platform plans fail (ie. downtown campus, new hospital, continued “sell” of the city), my question is, what alternative plans do you have?
Thanks for the question! Over the last couple of years we have seen tourism in an upswing. More Americans are getting their passports and that is pretty evident with a multitude of license plates from all over the USA. Three years ago, we created a strategic initiative after doing a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis, and placed it on the City’s website for all to see. Our plans WILL succeed and will be a catalyst for healthy growth and diversification of our local economy and will lead to more, better paying jobs.
