Preservation Buffalo Niagara is engaged in a community preservation planning process for Grant Street as part of a larger community development and revitalization project initiated by Assemblymember Sean Ryan with funding from the State of NY, the John R. Oishei Foundation, and the City of Buffalo through Councilmember David Rivera.
Community members are asked to contribute to this project by attending one of two community workshops on Saturdays March 14 or April 11 at the Grant Street Bazaar (68 Grant Street) from 11am – 3pm.
These will be interactive Asset Mapping workshops focused on the consumer experience on Grant Street, particularly for current residents of the West Side- is there a business that you love? Do you feel crossing the street could be safer? Is there a vacant storefront you have an idea for?
Please come and share your ideas!
We are also conducting a consumer survey until April 15. Please share take a moment to share your thoughts on Grant Street and share these links with family and friends.
