Where We Live: Buffalo


Before City Hall closes Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday, meetings of the Common Council and Zoning Board will convene.

The Council will meet in regular session at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers, and is expected to adopt a new investment policy, submitted by Comptroller Mark J.F. Schroeder.

Lawmakers will also conduct a public hearing on the proposed rezoning of parcels along Forest Avenue and Danforth Street to make way for a student housing development.

The Council will also consider bids from contractors seeking to renovate community centers around the city, including CRUCIAL on Moselle Street, Delavan-Grider, Hennepin on Ludington Street, JFK on Hickory Street, Schiller Park on Genesee Street and Autumnwood on Clinton Street.

Also this week:

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

• Black Squirrel Distillery, which will also offer a tasting room at 1597 Elmwood Ave., goes before the Zoning Board when it meets at 2 p.m. Monday in Room 901 of City Hall.

Also on the zoning board’s lengthy agenda is a new potential home for Flying Bison Brewing Co. at 840 Seneca St., and plans for a new brewery, Resurgence Brewing Co., at 1270 Niagara St.

The board will also review a plan to convert a private club into an apartment, liquor and grocery store with take-out at 133 Kingsley St., near Roehrer Avenue, and a plan for a wholesale bakery at 121 Baynes Ave.

• The Buffalo Urban Development Corp. will meet at noon Tuesday in the fifth-floor conference room at 95 Perry St. It is the first meeting of the corporation since Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced plans to locate a clean-energy manufacturing and education hub at RiverBend, a remediated brownfield owned by BUDC.
