Riverwalk (Shoreline Trail) Revitalization Plan

When it comes to the waterfront, we have come a long way, but there’s a long way to go. Fortunately there are still opportunities for the public to jump onboard with planning and revitalization efforts, and at the same time there are organizations and programs striving to create the most walkable, water accessible, areas along Lake Erie, the Niagara River, the Buffalo River, etc.

At this juncture in time, there are a few different ways to stay plugged in to the evolution of the waterfront. Coming up this week is an opportunity take part in the Riverwalk (Shoreline Trail) Revitalization Plan. At this time, public feedback is sought in the creation of a 5-year action plan that would get the multi-modal trail (along the Niagara River) up to snuff.

The Riverwalk is the portion of the Niagara River Greenway system that falls within the City of Buffalo, extending from the northern extent of the City limits at Vulcan Street, to Buffalos’s urban core, technically, at the intersection of Erie Street and Marine Drive to the south, but with the potential to, ultimately, reach Canalside.

Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper Project Team will be hosting a meeting, along with the City of Buffalo, on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Proposed Projects for the Riverwalk and surrounding neighborhoods will be outlined. The meeting will take place at Rich Products, One Robert Rich Way – corner of Niagara Street and West Ferry Street. For more information regarding the Riverwalk Revitalization Project, you can visit www.riverwalkrevitalizationbuffalo.com.
