One Region Forward is committed to empowering the people of Buffalo Niagara to be a part of the process in driving positive, sustainable change in our region and diverse communities. We will move the region forward together.
Learn more about how Working Teams and Contributors will guide the work of One Region Forward.
As a Working Team Contributor, your ideas and input can feed directly into the nuts and bolts of One Region Forward’s planning process, working to review documents and providing feedback to Working Teams.
Concerned citizens, community leaders, representatives from our business community, and our region’s elected officials were afforded an opportunity to weigh in on the initial regional vision during a series of meetings in late 2012/early 2013.
We are moving the conversation online.
If you did not have the opportunity to attend, but want to weigh in, please use the Regional Vision & Values Feedback Tool to make your voice heard.
We want to hear from citizens and organizations across Erie and Niagara County to guide the vision and participate in the development of the plan. It’s a chance to learn more about the effort and be a part of One Region Forward.
If you’re involved in a project or a program that you believe helps define what sustainability means for the future for our region, tell us about it and we’ll feature it on our website’s interactive map “Sustainability in Action.”

I’m moving One Region Forward by…
We’ve been out across the region asking people to tell us what they do to define sustainability in their daily lives and move One Region Forward.

Join Our Community Congress
Because no plan for sustainable development can succeed without the creative contribution and informed support of the citizens of the Buffalo Niagara Region, the One Region Forward process will involve thorough and persistent engagement of the people it will impact the most.
When the Community Congress meets for the first time, we will introduce this effort and hear citizen voices about the vision and values that should guide One Region Forward.
January 29, 2013, 7pm – 9pm at Asbury Hall at “Babeville”, Buffalo, NY
February 2, 2013, 2pm – 4pm at the Niagara Falls Conference Center, Niagara Falls, NY
