Buffalo City Council

Buffalo Planning Director Lynn Barrett, during her report to the council, told them she had been approached by a group looking to develop 190 acres of property north of the Greenleaf Subdivision and between the two Interstate Highways.

The group would be looking for funding from grants and other sources for infrastructure projects in the proposed development.
There are no concrete plans at this point, she said, but preliminary talks have been going on between her and the developers.

Barrett reported the YMCA had requested the use of Prosinski Park for their fall flag football program. Details were worked out between the Y and the school district, she said.

Flashing on the Margo's Pottery Building to protect the murals will be installed by Scott Madsen, who was the contractor who gave the Buffalo Downtown Association their estimate.
The artists, Aaron and Jenny Wuerker and Marchel Kelly, will be working to chemically protect the mural. Both projects are fully covered by the grants obtained for the murals, according to Barrett.

Barrett discussed the bronze sculptures contracted out to Hugh Jennings that are to be installed in Crazy Woman Square once completed.
She explained where the project is now.

No action was taken by the council.
