The Buffalo Green Code’s Land Use Plan is designed to provide a framework for decision-making about physical development. It outlines the community’s expectations and preferences regarding future development.
The Land Use Plan serves as a bridge between the city’s comprehensive plan and zoning code by recommending the appropriate type, intensity, and character of development. It envisions a future for Buffalo built around the restoration of walkable, mixed-use, transit-served neighborhoods and economic centers. The plan focuses on three core strategies: fuel economic generators, restore neighborhoods, and repair environmental assets.
