Sam* (and Brian*, and Byron*, and Elliot*),
Here's an idea: do NOT ALLOW the PBA to expand the amount of waterfront land they supposedly need for their Plaza! Put shared-border-management BACK on the table (Hillary*, Charles*… are you reading?) or, re-consider a one-bridge solution that replaces – instead of supplements – the current one or, allow the Ambassador Bridge to happen. At a time when NYS Authorities are being pushed to reasonable and fair action, we have the momentum to tell the PBA (PUBLIC Bridge Authority) where WE want the Plaza, instead of accepting what they wanted in the first place. It is a no-brainer that a single bridge would require less land than the connection of two, for a Plaza. Yes, we (everyone in WNY) wants this resolved once and for all but, not at the expense of water access and sane planning.
