I met up with LaLuce Mitchell, Buffalo's newest blogger yesterday. His recent graduate work in Chicago intersects with the Buffalo Green Code, Buffalo's effort to implement a form-based code that enhances and protects the City's historic character. fixBuffalo readers will remember this Earth Day post from 2010 profiling Mayor Byron W. Brown's announcement to implement a "green" zoning code. LaLuce is blogging at Re|Form Buffalo.
LaLuce Mitchell - Re|Form Buffalo blogger
LaLuce wanted fixBuffalo readers to know this: "I'm writing this blog on behalf of Re|Form Buffalo, a new group established to ensure Buffalo gets the best out of the Green Code, its form-based zoning reform. I am a Chicagoan recently transplanted to Buffalo. I hold a Masters Degree in Historic Preservation from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I wrote a thesis on form-based codes and historic preservation. I live on the Lower West Side, walk to work at a downtown architecture firm where I am a historic preservation specialist, and revel in the public life of Buffalo's cafes, restaurants, and cultural amenities."Check in with LaLuce as he keeps a keen eye on what's happening with Buffalo's Green Code.
