Partners e-Newsletter...

Just received the latest e-newsletter from George Grasser and Partners for a Liveable WNY - March 26, 2007 George is adding hyperlinks to some of his commentary and notes for further exploration of what's happening here and around the country. Check it out.
  • A number of our contact list members are participating in the Blueprint Buffalo initiative to address how to deal with the increasing number of vacant and abandoned properties in Buffalo and the first-ring suburbs of Cheektowaga, Amherst and Tonawanda. Four working groups are being organized to focus on specific parts of the vacant and abandoned properties problem. New members are welcome to join one or more of these groups. The groups are 1-Regional Real Property Information System, 2-Comprehensive Code Enforcement, 3-Right-Sizing and Greening; 4-Greyfields and Brownfields.
  • We are participating with a group of concerned citizens of the City of Niagara Falls in a nine-week FREE Wednesday evening Smart Growth series “Revitalizing and Romancing the City – From Smart Growth to Sustainable Development” beginning April 11. Your attendance is encouraged. All programs will be at the Niagara Falls Public Library from 7 to 9 p.m
I've been asked to share the panel on April 25th - Housing for Everyone - in Niagara Falls with Tim Wannamaker, Director of the City of Buffalo Office of Strategic Planning. Should be interesting. As Michael Clarke from LISC-Buffalo is leading the discussion on April 18th about abandoned and vacant property.
