Buffalo’s Green Code took a major step forward last week with the release of the public review draft, which can be downloaded here. Now the Office of Strategic Planning is engaging interested community members through a series of working group sessions to review specific sections of the Green Code draft.
This review effort follows up on a series of focused sessions held for the preliminary draft Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) that included significant community participation and resulted in extensive input and modifications. The upcoming working group sessions will include a brief overview of the UDO and specific sections to be reviewed, an outline of changes made to the preliminary draft, and will provide an opportunity for dialogue and comments.
Citizens are invited to work with the Green Code team over the coming weeks to review the updated draft UDO. A schedule for the sessions is listed below.
