Advocacy Alert: Johnnie Ryan Bottling Plant


On March 5, 2019, the Niagara Falls Historic Preservation Commission held a public hearing for the landmarking of 822 Niagara Street. The Commission will be accepting written statements until April 2nd. At that time they will vote whether or not to recommend the application to the NF City Council. The landmark application will then be on the agenda at the April 3rd City Council meeting, where the Council Members will vote whether or not to locally landmark the building.

To submit your written statement to the Preservation Commission you can:

  • Mail it to: NF Historic Preservation Commission
                        745 Main Street
                        PO BOX 69
                        Niagara Falls, New York 14302
  • Drop it off at City Hall in the City of Niagara Falls Planning Office

But don’t stop there! Let NF City Council know that you support the landmarking of 822 Niagara Street. Visit to use PBN’s advocacy platform to send an email to the NF City Council asking them to vote YES to landmarking the former Johnnie Ryan Co. Bottling Plant.

If you’ve gone this far, why not take it to the next level? Call 716-286-4301 and tell them:

I support the landmarking of 822 Niagara Street, the former Johnnie Ryan Co. Bottling Plant, and urge the City Council to vote YES to landmarking it at their April 3rd meeting.
