North Tonawanda, NY - A business across from Fisherman's park that works with piles of stone has been there for years. The developer of a new apartment complex on River Road wants the North Tonawanda Common Council to assist in cleaning up the area, saying that some of their neighbors along the corridor are violating various zoning and building codes.
However, the city’s code enforcement officer noted that the developers chose to build the apartment complex in an M zone and that the city’s waterfront has long been an industrial center. He said the city can’t force the industry out overnight.
