An association by the name of Residents of the Elmwood Village (REV) is hosting its first public meeting tonight (July 28, from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM) at the Isaias Gonzalez-Soto Branch Library (280 Porter Avenue) to discuss the “benefits of the Elmwood Village becoming a local historic district.” REV’s objective is to submit the Elmwood Village to the City of Buffalo for landmarking status.
“Today many consider the Elmwood Village characteristically ‘Buffalo’ in spirit and form. Built during the height of the city’s economic, cultural and financial boom at the end of the nineteenth and dawn of the twentieth centuries, the houses, apartment buildings, and commercial structures are characteristic of Buffalo’s finest residential stock. In celebration of this cultural and architectural history, the neighborhood and its 3,400+ properties were successfully nominated to the National Register of Historic Places several years ago.” – REV
Tonight’s meeting will give Elmwood Village residents and property owners a chance to discuss the opportunities and implications of becoming a local historic district.
“Securing local landmark status will provide the Elmwood Village residents and property owners with a voice in the future of their community and all it has to offer.” – REV
