Buffalo City Planning Director Lynn Barrett, in her report to the city council at their last meeting, said the grant applications to study the feasibility of a high-tech business park and a business corridor on the eastern edge of Buffalo have been completed and submitted to the state.
She also reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission approved a re-zoning of the former Clear Creek School from R-1 to B-1 to accommodate the various business entities that are now using the building.
The Planning Commission approved language changes to the zoning ordinance that will exclude tattoo establishments from the downtown business district. City Attorney Ben Kirven is working on the legal terminology. He is also working on language changes to the nuisance ordinances, all of which are expected to be brought before the council at their next meeting.
Barrett described a request from a building owner that will be brought before the Planning Commission for review.
Chuck Jepson, owner of Bison Meadows Subdivision on the South Bypass in Buffalo, contacted Barrett and said he had no idea his former partner had been dumping materials in the subdivision, but since he now owns it outright he will be cleaning the dumped materials from the lands in the subdivision.
