A recent question/suggestion posted by Greg in the BRO Forum section as follows – reminiscent of many past BRO queries including this one that dates back to 2008 regarding the need for a comprehensive plan.
I think the wonderful thing about this city is that we have a lot of non-profit groups working to make Buffalo more enjoyable. However, one of the biggest ignorances in the city has been its attempt to revive the East Side. Now, I’m not saying to bring back Polonia or other groups of people who have mostly abandoned their childhood neighborhoods.
I’d just like see the East Side be a place people won’t fear walking in at night and a place people might raise a family. So pretty much I’ve got two questions:
1. Is there some sort of East Side Redevelopment group that is nonprofit, coordinates with other nonprofits, and not tangled in the government?
2. If there isn’t one, why not start one?
