Pastries & Preservation-Ready Sites will be holding a special breakfast gathering this month on the topic of Buffalo area land banking at the Sweetness 7 Café at 220 Grant St and Lafayette on Thursday, April 24 at 8:15 AM. These breakfast events, which kicked-off in early 2012, are sponsored by the Facebook Group, Preservation-Ready Sites, and are extensions of the group’s online activities. Pastries & PRS is a casual, fun way to meet fellow citizens, architects, planners, historians and preservationists who care about the built environment in Western New York.
The format of this special meet-up begins with our featured speaker. This month’s speaker is Jocelyn Moser Gordon, Executive Director of Benlic – Buffalo Erie Niagara Land Improvement Corporation. She will speak on the current status of land banking efforts in our community. A brief Question and Answer Period will follow.
Preservation-Ready Sites is an independent/grassroots media watchdog group comprised of citizens interested in architectural preservation and quality new design opportunities in Buffalo, NY. We are NOT another preservation group-we look to collaborate with the other preservation organizations in Buffalo, including Preservation Buffalo Niagara, Campaign for Greater Buffalo, Buffalo Architecture Foundation, Buffalo Young Preservationists, etc. Our mission is to create a media platform/effort that raises public awareness about Buffalo buildings at risk, document issues affecting the status of the buildings, and create calls-to-action to enable the public to get involved.
