On Monday, our Board of Directors affirmed the General Project Plan (GPP) for the Buffalo Outer Harbor. This affirmation of the GPP is the culmination of six years of planning, community engagement and coordination with the City of Buffalo and other entities and outlines future improvements to the city’s Lake Erie waterfront that will build on earlier upgrades recently completed by ECHDC. This important step formally prioritizes the projects presented in the 2019 Outer Harbor Preferred Plan. Additionally, it sets forth an initial list of project components that will undergo final design in 2021, with construction starting soon thereafter.
In addition, the Board also carried several other items, including the hiring of a construction manager as well as an events and concessions manager for the Outer Harbor.
