Niagara Falls council to meet in special session today

Niagara Falls city council will hold a special meeting this afternoon, to discuss the city's second attempt to get a university presence in the downtown core.

The meeting gets underway at 4:30 and is open to the public.

During the special session, council will be updated on Ryerson's second application to get a federal development grant to establish a digital media zone in the Q District.

A similiar grant application was turned down in 2016.
