Where We Live: Buffalo


The city’s tax foreclosure auction will be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the Convention Center, 153 Franklin St.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., and the auction begins at 9:30 a.m. every morning.

Every year, the city sells at auctions properties where the owner has fallen behind in their city tax bills.

A list of nearly 4,400 properties is available for review on the city’s web site, though the list of properties that will actually be for sale will shrink as the auction approaches. The list is subject to change as property owners pay their bills, or the city removes some properties from the list for future development. In addition, the week before the auction, city attorneys work with property owners on payment plans in a court-supervised process, which also takes properties off the list.

The city does not allow prospective buyers to view the interior of properties before they are sold.

Also this week:

• The Common Council will hold its premeeting caucus at 2 p.m. Monday in Room 1417 of City Hall.

• The Buffalo Urban Development Corp. will meet at noon Tuesday in the fifth-floor conference room at 95 Perry St.

• The Council will meet in regular session at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers.

• The community meeting to discuss traffic issues in Parkside will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Sweet_ness 7 Cafe, 301 Parkside Ave. The city is beginning a traffic study in Parkside next month, and the meeting is an opportunity for residents to share their opinions about neighborhood traffic.

• The Preservation Board will meet at 3 p.m. Thursday in Room 901 of City Hall.
