The Buffalo Urban Development Corporation has just released the second round of loan funding through the BBRP Loan Program. Developers are eligible to receive up to $750,000 in financing for adaptive reuse projects in downtown Buffalo. Note that the deadline for submission is 4:00 p.m. on Friday June 20, 2014.
Over the past two years, the Mayor's Office of Strategic Planning, its' consultant team, and the community have been diligently working on the Buffalo Green Code. Based upon this input and the thousands of comments received prior to these meetings, the City's consultants have been busy preparing a draft of the zoning code. The City is currently reviewing the details with stakeholders and draft sections are available online at ftp://ftp.ci.buffalo.ny.us/Planning/GreenCode/GreenCodeWorkingDraftUDO/.
Written comments can be submitted to John Fell, Senior Planner with the City of Buffalo at PLAN81@ch.ci.buffalo.ny.us. A public draft is scheduled to be released in the next few months, which will incorporate comments received to date. Your participation is welcome and encouraged.
