There are several neighborhoods in buffalo that have been in serious need of investment and repair for many years.

In fact, some neighborhoods have been quite neglected over the years.

While there has been a lot of development in the downtown core, and in different neighborhoods like Hertel-Parkside and the Elmwood-Village. Parts of Buffalo's East and West Side had been largely ignored.

One of the things that resulted from the racist domestic terrorist attack that took away ten lives in mid-May was highlighting the fact that parts of Jefferson Avenue on Buffalo's East Side had been so neglected for so many years.

Since that terrible tragedy, there have been tons of resources have poured into various low and moderate-income neighborhoods across the city. In addition to those public and private resources that have come into town, the local and state government have both promised to dedicate more resources to the the area as well.

To that end, the City of Buffalo, in partnership with the Buffalo Sewer Authority and Buffalo Water, are planning improvements to Jefferson Avenue, between Main Street and Best Street, and they are seeking the input of residents and other concerned individuals on what improvements should be made in the Jefferson Avenue corridor.

Two public meetings have been scheduled to gather your thoughts. Some improvements have already been made, with others being planned through the rest of 2022 and into 2023.

The two public meetings and workshops are scheduled for:

  • Thursday, August 11, 2022, at 5:00 pm at the Merriweather Library,
    1324 Jefferson Avenue
  • Saturday, August 13, 2022, at 10:00 am at the Makowski School (PS #99),
    1095 Jefferson Avenue

If you can't make the public meetings, officials have also set up a website where you can share your comments and ideas. You can find that website right here.
