“Buffalo Niagara, how are we really doing?”

Buffalo-Change-NY-1On Monday, October 26, a panel of civic leaders will be answering the question, “Buffalo Niagara, how are we really doing?” Yes, we see the cranes in the skies, and friends moving back home, new businesses opening, etc. But what is the real story? Are we capitalizing on our successes? Are we missing out on any potential growth sectors? Is the area’s economy as strong as it appears? Who is participating in the growth? Where will we be five years down the road?

The panel discussion will revolve around author Larry Brooks work Buffalo Niagara: Diagnosis and Prescription for Change. Aside from the tangible growth that we are experiencing, how does Buffalo add up when it comes to human, social, and environmental capital? If you’re wondering what’s under the surface, good and bad, then come listen to some of the experts from a cross-section of organizations, as they discuss the broader picture when it comes to what all Buffalonians are experiencing when it comes to benefiting from this city’s rebirth.

The panel includes:

Philip Haberstro 
Executive Director
Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo & WNY

Jay Burney 
Founder and Chair
Friends of Times Beach Nature Preserve

Sam Magavern
Partnership for the Public Good

Marlies Wesolowski 
Executive director
Lt. Col Matt Urban Human Services Center
