    Take the survey!

    The Survey

    The City of Buffalo reached out to community members to what is important as it transforms Niagara Street Now.  The survey  was used to gather a multitude of perspectives and ideas.

    The survey closed on JANUARY 31, 2016.

    Results of the survey were on display at the February Community Workshops and were incorporated into the community recommendations for the re-design of Niagara Street, from Porter to Ontario.


    February Community Workshops

    On February 16th, 17th, or 18th, Community Workshops were held to explore the results of the survey and offer ideas on how the streetscape could be re-imagined to address community concerns, priorities and values.
