On Wednesday, October 15th from 5:00 – 6:30PM, the public is invited to sit in on the Citizens for Regional Transit quarterly public meeting. At the meeting there will be a panel discussion revolving around Transit Oriented Development (TOD), and where it needs to go in the future.
With the recent news of the Buffalo Billion funding reaching the neighborhood level (see here), these discussions are more important than ever. At the same time, we are finally about to see the fruits of the Cars Sharing Main Street initiative. Plus, there are a handful of developers that are said to be making inroads with the public sector to amplify recent successes via potential public transportation initiatives. There could be no better time to push for The Belt Line and extended Metro Rail service to the airport.
See what the City, the NFTA, and one developer have to say about this city’s future when it comes to building a better Buffalo and linking it all together.
