Some people have nothing better to do than pitch a fit. No one asked if there were a 100 people in Dunkirk who wanted to work. How soon we forget that Silver Creek just lost over 200 jobs and ANY JOB service industry or otherwise will help and provide income for existing businesses. We don't have to wait for the hotel to see new jobs. The full size Dunkin Donuts is nearing completion and immediately following will be a Kentucky Fried/ Taco Bell on the same real estate. We have needed a place to stay here for years. Try to find a place to stay in Dunkirk if the college has graduation or some other large event. Further, If the Native Americans build their outlet mall there will be more jobs and income generated to help reduce taxes in the town. Don't see anything new going on in Dunkirk. Let's get real here!!

**BREAKING** The county IDA forgot to supply water for the water park. Daly is quoted as saying this was an oversight that never surface even though a water park-style entertainment area was first pitched 14 months ago.

You couldn't find 100 people in Dunkirk that want to work. They wouldn't get off of welfare.

Can't you people read? The article clearly states it is a 70-room, three-story hotel with an indoor water park resort attached to it. I'm sure there will be more than enough business in the "off" season. Have you ever been to Splash Lagoon in the winter?

If they pull this one off it will be a good thing. Just think of the increased business for the Hot Dog stand. Maybe they will stay open year round now. Good luck to all.

I'm still confused how it's the City's fault that the DLDC lent money to the Clarion to build a waterpark, but the Clarion was dishonest and used that money for other things instead. If you're mad there is no waterpark in Dunkirk then take your pitchforks over to the Clarion.

If the water park is an INDOOR park, that would attract business year round! If not, might I suggest building a slope for snowboarding and tubing!

Let's hope the project is a huge success. The developer should do a market analysis to help insure the success of the investment. Keep in mind that it is basically a seasonal business but the bills come in all year. The beautiful condos in Bemus Point are in bank ownership because the demand was over estimated. The multi-million dollar Clarion Hotel in dunkirk was closed down about ten years ago for lack of activity. I'm not trying to be negative and I love private sector investment but it must be done with both eyes wide open.

I'm confused, a private company developing a vacant field, is spending millions of dollars, and employing 100 people. And this is a bad thing??? Wow, you must be the same person that would complain about winning the powerball because of all the trips you would have to take through Buffalo's traffic to claim the prize.........sheeeesh!!!

rumblefhish, its not a black eye for the city, the city is the black eye. I cant think of one good reason why anybody would want to locate thier business in Dunkirk. Just look around, its a dump with rickety housing, unkept beaches, dilapitated old factories and a population of want wants that woulnt inspire any businessman.

Well.....i've written about the need for a waterpark for Dunkirk's waterfront numerous times. Oh well, I guess I'll go down and buy some campi's pizza and an ugly tie-dye shirt (really, who wears those anymore?)

Hope the Dunkirk Local Development Corp is paying attention: Private development, job creation, etc., etc.

Much more productive than wasting taxpayer’s dollars on the “festival of the week”.

I honestly can't believe this. Are all these Borrellos related to Legislator Borrello?

there goes the neighboorhood. the idea of employing people is great for the area but the traffic on 5 and 20 is already a nightmare. i hope those bridge builders can incorperate something into their plans. that traffic light idea was needed along time ago as well as a turning lane along all those businesses.

Gee I hope us working poor can afford the taxes that supposedily won't go up. I'm sure glad that the one "family" in town can get whatever they want done. Hopefully we don't get left with having to bail it out 10 years down the road. Oh well maybe NOW they will finally put a traffic light up on Buffalo Rd. LOL
