The City of Buffalo will be conducting a number of Community Assessment “Listening Sessions” to gather public input for the latest assessment, with the goal of making Buffalo a “better place to live, work, play and visit,” said Buffalo City Planner Zach Montgomery.

Montgomery said the City has done this before.

Montgomery said the original assessment was used as a guiding tool for city leaders to use to help direct where Buffalo would head into the future.

This newest assessment will do the same, with a few changes, he said.

Montgomery said the five-member State Assessment Team will be in Buffalo this week, conducting interviews and gathering input, working to compile information for a public meeting Thursday, where they will present their preliminary findings to the those interested.

The public-input sessions will be conducted Wednesday and Thursday this week, and although they have specific times set for specific cross-sections if the community, anyone is welcome at any of the sessions and can contribute to the assessment, Mongomery said.
