Letter: Developers need to get Gates Circle project right

Developers need to get Gates Circle project right

Kudos to the many concerned citizens who attended the Buffalo City Planning Board meeting on Dec. 14 regarding Gates Circle. The forceful, intelligent and informed objections of the Gates Circle neighbors and friends resulted in a rare setback for the planned project, much to the dismay of the developers who usually get municipal approval easily. The developer’s proposed colors and materials are appalling and unacceptable.

I have live in Buffalo for 62 years near two different Olmsted Parks and an Olmsted circle. I’ve seen the parks destroyed and watched disgraceful mistakes made. Another mistake must not be made. Honor our heritage and do Gates Circle right.
