Buffalo, NY - Many neighbors in the University Heights area are concerned about party houses. They say some UB students host parties with more than two-hundred people in attendance.
"This is a partnership. It's a big campus, it's an important campus. We need to start working on some of the problems," said a Buffalo Police Officer Tuesday night.
The University Heights Collaborative met Tuesday night and announced that neighbors have formed a quality of life task force with UB to deal with the party house problem near campus.
UHC President Mickey Vertino is hopeful that means that, in the future, fewer students will use university shuttle buses to get to parties.
"In the past, there's been no consequence. It's a party bus. Jump on it. Get toasted. Come out to the Heights. Have a good time and nobody's going to do anything. That's changing," says Vertino.
