The Vision Buffalo Committee held a second public workshop on the proposed changes to the Crazy Woman Square project Thursday at Buffalo's City Hall.
About 30 people showed up to hear what changes were made to the plan and where funding would be sought and to voice their opinions and ask questions.
VBC Chairman Jim Hicks gave the introduction and project summary and other members of the VBC discussed project design, funding, specifics of the work involved in construction, and Chamber Director Angela Jarvis discussed the economic impacts events in the square could have on the local economy.
The new vision for the square has been scaled back, and is more economical and feasible, although cost estimates released by the VBC are at $990,000. The project also has the backing of local merchants near the square that have been opposed to the project in the past, according to Zach Montgomery, Buffalo City Planner.
Montgomery explains where the project goes from here.
