Open House on the proposed Green Code

Those interested in learning more about the proposed Green Code are invited to attend an Open House this Saturday at ECC’s City Campus. It’s been 60 years since the codes have been updated, which means that the city planning efforts (or lack thereof) have been less than fruitful. Moving forward there will be a regulatory framework for the development of the city, based on the input from some of the most progressive urbanist minds in the region.

The old code was so outdated that there was essentially nothing to go by when it came to making sensible development rulings. Unfortunately Buffalo still has to deal with countless bad decisions that have been made. In a city that commands respect for its historic built environment, the Office of Strategic Planning’s new Green Code could finally provide the answers that so many have been looking for when it comes to rebuilding a better Buffalo.

Once the citizens have voiced their opinions on the new code (at Open Houses such as this), it is still expected to take months for the code to be adopted.
