Press Conf: Support Outer Harbor Park!
September 23, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 pm
“Buffalo’s Outer Harbor: the Right Place for a World-Class Park.” Bell Slip (Fuhrmann Blvd, just past the first exit off Route 5 (heading west from Buffalo). Please come out to support the initiative. All are welcome. More info below.
As concerned citizens you can preview this report, written by Sam Magavern and the Partnership for Public Good, and endorsed by the OUR Outer Harbor coalition. It is on the PPG website.
With this release we kick off a campaign that will need everyone’s help: letters, meetings with officials, etc. It is time to put forth OUR vision for the Outer Harbor to help secure and restore our Lake Erie coast as a healthy public park for the generations of people and wildlife who depend on it.
The ECHDC board approved their preferred plan in June–basically the same plan as presented to the public on May 2. See buffalowaterfront.com/accessandactivation. There is is not much evidence that our collective feedback was incorporated. The environmental review and final design process is expected to take at least a year, so there is time for continued public dialogue on the future of this important piece of our city’s natural and cultural history.
