NFTA transfers Outer Harbor property to ECHDC

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation is now the official owner of the land in Buffalo’s Outer Harbor previously controlled by the NFTA.

On Thursday, the NFTA transferred the 354 acres of waterfront land to the ECHDC, though the NFTA will continue to operate the boat harbor for the 2014 season.

Last September a plan was announced to create a new state park, including a public swimming beach, at the location.
