GBNRTC encourages community members to attend March 29 workshop to share ideas
BUFFALO, N.Y. – The Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council (GBNRTC) is encouraging the community to explore ways to encourage Transit-Oriented Development along the existing Metro Rail line in the City of Buffalo as well as proposed Metro Rail extension to the Northtowns.
“Transit-Oriented Development is gaining momentum across the country as a way to leverage transit investment to enhance access to jobs and education, improve neighborhood connectivity to transit, and encourage community investment and economic development,” said GBNRTC Executive Director Hal Morse.
“Essentially, Transit-Oriented Development provides our region the opportunity to capitalize on the full potential of transit investment to strengthen neighborhoods and bolster the economy,” he added.
Public input is essential to the discussion and will help shape the community’s approach to Transit-Oriented Development along Metro Rail. Community members are encouraged to attend a workshop to share ideas and insights Wednesday, March 29, 2017 from 6-8p.m. at the Seneca One Tower Lobby, Buffalo, NY 14203.
To get to Seneca One Tower, take Metro Rail to Seneca Street Station or take Metro Bus to the intersection of Seneca/Main and enter through the Northeast plaza entrance, or park at the Exchange Street parking garage and enter via the pedestrian bridge.
