By Thea Hassan:

Perhaps Smart Growth is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. A free workshop on the economic and fiscal impacts of smart growth will be held Wednesday, June 15, at the Burchfield Penney Art Center at 5:00-6:30 pm.

The EPA and Erie County invite the public, builder and developers, insurance companies, attorneys, members of municipal planning and zoning boards, elected officials, and planners to attend.

Dena Beltzer, president and founder of Strategic Economics, an urban and regional consulting and research firm, will be speaking at the event.

•  Reduces the tax burden
•  Investments spur job creation
•  Public investments stimulate private investments

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
