Affordable Housing and the Environment in Buffalo, New York

Other Titles

Abstract

Buffalo is suffering from severe housing and environmental problems, many of which overlap. New housing continues to sprawl into the suburbs and exurbs, despite a large surplus of housing units in Buffalo, where the City plans to demolish 10,000 units in the next ten years. In general, housing is not being designed, built, or renovated in an environmental manner. Our outdated housing policies and choices contribute significantly to pollution, both locally and globally: the region gets a failing grade for air quality; the city has 68 sewage overflows per year; and residential energy use is the largest source of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions. Air pollution affects people with low incomes the most severely, and, with the advent of climate change, it has the potential to make millions of people homeless around the globe.
