The August 7, 2017 print version of the Buffalo Law Journal published my column – titled “Poor planning produces predictable parking problems” – in which I opine regarding the ways the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus [BNMC] board of directors, the City of Buffalo, and New York State have failed the Allentown and Fruit Belt neighborhoods by not effectively addressing beforehand foreseeable parking headaches resulting from the growth of the medical campus.
The column is available on-line at the BLJ website.
Here are links to various newspaper articles and documents referred to in the Buffalo Law Journal piece:
– A July 26, 2017 Buffalo News editorial entitled “Medical Campus parking squeeze must be dealt with.”
– An April 7, 2017 Buffalo News editorial entitled “Forward-looking Medical Campus is working on parking crunch.”
– BNMC’s “2010 Master Plan Update.”
– Buffalo News articles from May 16, 2016, June 17, 2016, and March 15, 2017.
– “Quick Facts” regarding the new SUNY at Buffalo medical school complex.
Note: After reading the BLJ column, you might agree with the conclusion that I have reached: Given his role as both the Mayor of the City of Buffalo and member of the Board of Directors of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, Inc., the following statement by Byron Brown rings awfully hollow: “I made Fruit Belt parking my top legislative priority.”
