Alternative Scenarios Open House, July 2014


Help shape a shared vision that will move One Region Forward.
Citizens from across Buffalo Niagara shared their vision for the future. Now learn the impacts of each of these visions on our region.

 Alternative Scenarios Open House: Basing the Choices We Make Today on the Impacts They Will Have on Our Region Tomorrow

During the last Community Congress, One Region Forward asked residents from across Erie and Niagara counties to map what they want Buffalo Niagara to look like in 40 years. Over 770 citizens participated to create 115 maps at 27 workshops. These maps have been used to create three alternative scenarios for how our region might develop in the future.

Citizens will now be asked to review these three different alternative scenarios along with a “Business-as-usual” scenario to find out what each could mean for the region’s fiscal health, housing stock, agriculture productivity, transportation systems and more. This feedback will be used to establish a shared vision for the future of Buffalo Niagara – a new way to move One Region Forward.
