Tonawanda News —

“We are looking to see a full year’s worth of experience to make sure we are charging enough and have enough coming in to not only pay off the debt service, but also pay for maintenance of the structure and the utilities,” Pilozzi said. 

During his ribbon cutting speech, Pilozzi also responded to the many residents who have criticized the project for taking too long and costing too much.

“Some people have called it Pilozzi’s playhouse,” he said. “But it should be Pilozzi’s promise ... I made a promise and a commitment to this community and these residents when I campaigned. I’m really, really happy with the outcome and it is looking great.” 

Pilozzi said the city still needs to finish landscaping improvements around the structure. The remaining work will be done in stages, he said. Pilozzi also pointed to a number of other Greenway-funded projects, including the shoreline stabilization project and the city’s new kayak launch in Eastern Park.

“Everything we have done has improved the waterfront,” Pilozzi said.
