Westminster House project forum to be held Tuesday

Residents who want to learn more about the planned Westminster Commons senior housing project will get their chance Tuesday night.

The Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Centers is hosting a community meeting to discuss its new development project, as well as offer tours of the current Westminster House, which is the second-oldest settlement house in the country.

The BFNC, a nonprofit consortium of human-services centers, plans to construct a new multi-family apartment complex, using a group of properties on Monroe and Adams streets. The 78,000-square-foot building will include 84 apartments, community space and a treatment center with a medical clinic, pharmacy, rehab services and adult day programs. The organization will offer an array of supplementary services to support seniors and low-income individuals, especially those with mental health or other challenges.

The program, which will be led by BFNC Executive Director Ricardo Herrara, will be held at the Westminster House, at 421 Monroe St., from 5 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 28. Limited parking is available in the parking lot, as well as on-street parking.
