194 East Utica...update...

Just got this from Rod McCallum. Project is moving forward with some significant steps. Current thought is to call it "Queen City Farm." Posted about this last week - 194 East Utica on Life Support. Since then we had an opportunity to present parts of this project to students at UB School of Architecture and Planning and Samina Raja's Planning Methods Lab. Here's Rod's update...
I have decided to send a mass email to update everyone on what is happening with the project at 194 E Utica Street. Everyone on this list has some level of involvement or knowledge of the project and is interested in seeing it go forward. read the rest
Rod, myself and few others will be presenting this idea to City folks at some point next week. Meanwhile if you have any suggestions or would like to bring additional resources to the table to help move this project along, please let me know. Or reach Rod directly at the King Urban Life Center - 891-7912 or via email.
Make sure to check out Chicago based architect and frequent Buffalo Rising contributer David Steele's post from last April - Why is this house doomed.

You'll also notice - here's the map - that 194 East Utica is in the middle of 50m of public investment in the arts and education. Pretty good place to start. More very soon...
