Dear Common Council Members,
Go ‘head, flip-off the thousands of birds that might get killed,
Forget the echo of Buffalo’s industrial heritage that will be lost,
And, turn a blind eye to the waterfront views that will be ruined,
But do you really want one-vehicle-every-16-seconds crossing the Outer Harbor bike path?
Please say “No” to the 23-story tower at the old Freezer Queen site!
Here is the developer’s site plan showing the proposed entrance/exit to the Queen City Landing project crossing the adjacent public bike path:
And here is an excerpt from the developer’s traffic analysis indicating that the proposed 400,000-square-foot project would generate 228 vehicles entering or exiting the development during PM peak hours, 217 vehicles during the AM peak hours, and an average of 2,687 vehicles daily:
220 vehicles per hour equates to 3.66 vehicles per minute, or approximately one vehicle every 16 seconds crossing the public bike path.
With All Due Respect,
