Partner's April 2007 eNewsletter...

Just received the latest e-newsletter from George Grasser and Partners for a Liveable WNY - April 10, 2007. Major news includes...
  • 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.

I've archived past Partner's Newsletters, over here.

"Housing for Everyone"? This is a serious topic for people in Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY, where housing is probably the lowest cost in the entire nation and on the North American continent?! Sounds like a topic that would make sense in San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, or so forth, but I don't grasp what it means for Buffalo. Anyone, no matter now poor, can get great housing in Buffalo!

My remarks will be limited to "urban homesteading" and the emerging policy necessity to have a program here in Buffalo that makes sense and can turn vacant houses in to viable homes.
