A public scoping session will be held on April 9, 2008 at 5:00 p.m. at the Common Council Chambers, City Hall, 65 Niagara Square, Buffalo, NY 14202. The action involves the intended adoption and implementation of the South Buffalo Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) Plan. The BOA Plan will guide revitalization and redevelopment of the 1,800 acre BOA, including possible remediation of several strategic brownfield sites adjacent to parkland, residential areas, the newly developed Lakeside Commerce Park and the Buffalo River.
The purpose of the BOA Plan will be to create redevelopment opportunities on former industrial brownfields including the Steelfields industrial redevelopment site, enhanced parkland including improvements at Tifft Nature Preserve and South Park, new recreational and mixed use opportunities, and access improvements. Thresholds and standards for redevelopment will be established to help ensure that private development proceeds in accordance with the BOA Plan.
