Jan 17, 2019
Press Release

 

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) released the following statement in response to today’s deadline for North Aud Block proposals:

“Ten years ago the walls to Buffalo’s Memorial Auditorium came down; today’s deadline for public infrastructure design proposals marks the next step in rebuilding this block to compliment a much different Buffalo. Thanks to previous work on the Aud Block, including the Rinks at Canalside and the soon-to-be-completed Explore and More Children’s Museum, the Buffalo waterfront is now recognized as an all-season destination.  A $10 million commitment from New York State will rebuild infrastructure on the North Aud Block, creating walkable streets that compliment future private sector investments in retail, restaurant and residential development, and enhancing the public experience.

“Our waterfront continues to change the image of Buffalo from one that is old and industrial to one of exciting new possibilities that is redefining our region and rebuilding our economy to the benefit of all who live here today and all who will choose this region for the possibilities it provides for tomorrow.”
