A large crowd turned out for a DOT community meeting Wednesday evening January 25. The overwhelming sentiment expressed by about 50 speakers was that Buffalo deserves better that is what it being presented. The large intersections proposed by DOT were particularly called out for criticism because of the danger to pedestrians. Many from the community asked for better bicycle and pedestrian access. Better transit arrangements between the two halves of the park we’re also pushed for.
The deadline for comments on the dot plan is February 8. The SCC encourages all in the community to submit their comments. Contact with state and local officials is also encouraged.
