A. The Horizon Waterfront Action Plan.

Q. What has a public walkway along the city's waterfront, mixed-use development at the Outer Harbor, does include a public beach for Buffalo city residents and is considered "flawed" by The Buffalo News?

A. Mayor Griffin's Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan.

The News has gone to extremes to find fault with the mayor's plan simply because it has his name on it. This kind of narrow-minded prejudice should not be trying to dictate public policy, especially when it comes to something as important as our waterfront.
