Land Use, Green Code, and Zoning

Thursday, March 5, 2020 at 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Buffalo Commons Classroom 617 Main Street, Floor 3R, Buffalo, NY 14203

Learn how to level the playing field in development and zoning matters in our communities.

Zoning and land use decisions have major impacts on the wellbeing of a community. This workshop will feature Jessie Fisher, Executive Director of Preservation Buffalo Niagara and Art Giacalone, Land Use and Zoning Attorney sharing how individuals and groups in Buffalo and Erie County can understand land use and zoning law, terminology and procedures so they can more effectively express their concerns about proposed projects or changes. These laws are designed to promote public health, safety and welfare, and to protect and enhance the physical and visual environment.

RSVP to buffalocommons@cornell.edu. Light lunch will be provided.

Buffalo Commons offers workshops that share knowledge for the public good on topics ranging from civic engagement and local policy to best practices in community-based research.
