Buffalo Council Has Suggestions For VBC's Next Focus

At their meeting Tuesday evening, the Buffalo City Council discussed a number of possibilities for the Vision Buffalo Committee to focus its efforts now that the Crazy Woman Square project is coming to a close.

The VBC had approached the council at their last meeting in August, asking for direction from the council as to which projects they should focus their efforts on.

Councilmen Dave Long and Russ Humphrey distributed surveys to a handful of outlets during the past few weeks to seek public input in the matter.

Long read the comments at the meeting from the roughly 25 surveys filled out and returned.
Most suggested the city not take on any more “projects,” but concentrate on fixing roads and infrastructure and pay off the current, existing debt.

Of the suggestions that were submitted, most were in favor of parking projects downtown, signage to direct visitors to landmarks, Renovations at Prosinski Park, bicycle paths and the cleanup of the “Back of Main,” or the refurbishing of the alleyway and streets between Main Street and Prosinski Park.

Mayor Randy Dyess commented on the survey and then spoke to VBC on the direction they can take from the survey.

The information will be passed on to the VBC for their discussions and eventual decision as to which project to tackle next.
