The decision-making process, led by Perkins + Will, a San Francisco-based planning organization, is focusing on the 160 acres of industrial land along Lake Erie, and how it is to be integrated into the larger 350-acre tract that includes the newly designated Buffalo Harbor State Park. "We’re showing three ways to package the ideas for the waterfront, and in the end we will see what people prefer,” said Karen Alschuler, Perkins + Will’s global leader for urban design. Take a look at the proposals – eight categories packaged with a different emphasis into three groupings – prepared by Perkins + Will. They were shaped in July by public input collected from more than 600 people at three public forums. PDF: The proposals Continue reading

What does it take to make a community work? Not just to exist, but to move forward, even to thrive? Many factors go into those places, but chief among them has to be a collection of people who are committed to the kinds of causes that build the foundations and structures of communities where people want to be. And, in that, Buffalo is blessed. Each year, The Buffalo News presents its selection of Outstanding Citizens, and while people sometimes are acknowledged in more than one year, for the most part, different individuals stand out from year to year, demonstrating a depth of passion and talent that feeds the civic engine. This year’s winners are Dr. Myron and Joyce Glick of Jericho Road Community Health Center; Darnell Barton, a bus driver who saved a woman’s life; Keith Wiley, a math teacher at Houghton Academy; Robert Gioia, president of the John R. Oishei Foundation and chairman of Great Lakes Health and the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corp.; Justin Booth, executive director of GObike Buffalo; and Leslie Zemsky, director of fun for the Larkin Development Group. We’re pleased to honor this inspiring group of people who are making a positive impact on Buffalo... Continue reading
