textitfwdbanner_julysurveyTake this month’s survey – July 2014: Addressing Vacancy and Abandonment
As new development has sprawled over the last several decades and our regional population has declined, homes and businesses in once vibrant neighborhoods have been abandoned and left vacant, eroding our tax base and effecting the delivery of basic public services.
Answer questions on how you think we should address vacancy.

Here’s how it works:

1. Begin the survey by texting the letter of your answer to  716-791-5140
Question:    Is Buffalo Niagara moving in the right direction?

Answer:         A = Yes      B = No     C = Other

2. Answer 3-5 follow-up questions focused on different themes each month.

3. Take this survey again next month with a new set of questions (the 1st question will stay the same)
