General Mills, the global food giant and maker of Cheerios, has filed an application with the City of Buffalo to buy the dead end portion of Michigan Avenue between Ganson Street and the Ship Canal. This map, part of that application shows what one of world's largest food companies wants. Here's the street shot showing the portion of Michigan Avenue General Mills wants to buy.
The sale of this City street should not go forward. In every neighborhood City residents are fully engaged in reversing 50 years of bad urban planning. Waterfront access is part of citizen engagement in the process of reclaiming the City from past planning abuses. As seen in the last photo this portion of Michigan Avenue once connected Kelly Island to Fuhrmann Boulevard. The City removed the South Michigan Street Bridge in 1964.
