The Plan

Moves to Make it Happen

The One Region Forward scenario planning process gave citizens from across the two-county region an opportunity to show where and how they think Buffalo Niagara should grow between now and the mid-21st century through a hands-on mapping activity.

The chips and markers that citizens used on the maps represented real world changes to communities across Buffalo Niagara.

Moves to Make it Happen

These “Moves to Make it Happen” show some of the major development and transportation approaches needed to implement many of the ideas citizens generated during the mapping workshops. The moves happen across all four scenarios, although to varying degrees. They have been grouped into large subcategories, which include:

  • Rehab development
  • Infill development
  • Transit-oriented development
  • Making suburbs more walkable
  • Creating new places
