Buffalo shouldn’t look gift horse in the mouth
As the former court-appointed receiver of the Freezer Queen plant on Fuhrmann Boulevard, I am well familiar with the building and land. It occurs to me that the city planning board and others voicing objection to the Buchheit project may be looking a gift horse in the mouth. During the time that I managed the property, up through today, the property has been zoned M1 Industrial. If the Buchheit project is not approved, other uses that would not require zoning change include: foundry, metal working shop, coal pocket and freight or truck terminal. My sense is the city would be far better off to let the Buchheit project proceed.
