Get First Peek at the New Buffalo Green Code

You can get your first look at the draft version of Buffalo’s  first major zoning overhaul since the 1950s. It has been dubbed the Buffalo Green Code.  The initial phase of design for the new zoning code, the land use plan, will be unveiled Saturday October 29th at the Erie Community College City Campus, 121 Ellicott Street in an all day planning event.  This is much more than an unveiling.   Planning officials have labeled the presentation and open house “Planning Day in Buffalo” and will be asking for input from the public.  From the press release:

The release of the Draft Future Development Plan is an important milestone for Buffalo. The Plan will identify where development should go and how it should occur for every neighborhood in the city. The Plan will serve as the foundation for Buffalo’s new zoning code. Getting it right means making sure it works for you. This will be an opportunity for you to hear about key development strategies, discuss the Plan’s impact on your neighborhood and/ or business, and to talk about city-wide land use issues.

Formal presentation: 9:00 am, 10:30 am and 1:00 pm | Open House: 9:30 am to 3:00 pm
