Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) Open Houses

posted in: News, Uncategorized | 0

Three upcoming Brownfield Opportunity Area Open Houses will help create a long-term vision for three Brownfield Opportunity Areas that will then become part of the Buffalo Green Code. Consultants working with the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Planning will present preliminary development concepts for the Inner and Outer Harbors, Buffalo River Corridor, and Tonawanda Street Corridor and engage the community in a discussion of the long-term vision for these sites.

Please attend, participate, and encourage your friends and neighbors to join us in creating these important development strategies.
