Buffalo's Proposed Unified Development Ordinance: Preserving Community Character within a New Form-Based Code
MetadataShow full item record
For the first time since 1954, the City of Buffalo New York is undertaking a comprehensive review and complete overhaul of its zoning code, the result of which has been popularly dubbed “the Green Code.” The City, particularly Mayor Brown and the leadership and staff at the Office of Strategic Planning are to be commended for undertaking this important task. While there are many positive aspects of this effort, some changes are needed in order to ensure that the final zoning code recognizes, respects, and protects the high quality of our existing building stock and the unique and varied historic character of our neighborhoods and public spaces.
