Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown today invited residents to attend a public session tomorrow evening, Wednesday, October 13, 2021, regarding the City’s planned River Rock Connections project.

 The session, which will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., at Riverside Academy, will feature City Office of Strategic Planning staff presenting details of the River Rock Connections project, which is aimed at providing increased waterfront access to Black Rock and Riverside neighborhoods.

 Residents will be asked for their input on how best to shape the project by answering questions on how they currently use the waterfront, how they would use new trails and paths, walking and biking preferences, and what intersections and roads are an issue in reaching the waterfront.

 A second session, which will include an open forum and group discussions, will be held in November.

Buffalo’s City Hall Dome and the City’s BuffaloLIT Partners Will be Glowing Wednesday, October 13 to Mark National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day

The City Hall dome and sites throughout downtown Buffalo will be lit in Green, Teal, and Pink on Wednesday, October 13, to honor all those who have been diagnosed with or have succumbed to metastatic breast cancer.

National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day on October 13 is a time to gain and spread knowledge of what sufferers are up against and how society can help. Metastatic means that what began as a case of early-stage breast cancer has metastasized, or spread to other organs (lungs, bones, etc) outside the breasts, and is now considered to be stage four cancer. Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day is part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and presents an opportunity for us to increase awareness and visibility for those who are championing and fighting for scientific advances.
