Local officials frustrated at NRG's process to sell 'eyesore' Huntley site

NRG continues to drag its feet in their cleanup and sale of the huge property on our waterfront. The people have been clear on our vision for the future of Tonawanda!

What do you all think should be built at the former NRG/Huntley site in Tonawanda?

"For our team, the beacon of hope for a fair and just transition lies in the shell of the former Huntley power plant in Tonawanda. We see beyond the chain link fence and red tape, envisioning a community and environmental asset to our futures. We see the possibility for new life, new family sustaining green jobs and the hope of a better future for all of our people. We imagine a world where we all have what we need; we dare to create new possibilities."

This post comes to you from the American Axle Team:

"On our team, we believe in making this community whole. Making a community whole means the ability to garden, the ability for children to play in the dirt in their backyards and the ability to be confident that where we live doesn’t make us sick. Making our community whole isn’t a luxury or an unreasonable demand; it is what we deserve."

This post comes to you from the Tonawanda Coke campaign team.

"In our work, we are often told 'no.' We are told by people with power, over and over again, that our stories aren’t true, that our research isn’t good enough, that our dreams are unreasonable and unrealistic and that we need to stay in our lane. We are told that we do not have enough power to win. This year, during a global pandemic and a chaotic and divisive election cycle, we proved them wrong."

"I do this work with the memory of my mom in my heart everyday. I do it to honor my grandmother, my former neighbors and friends, and the countless people I do not know around Buffalo and WNY who are living and dying from the effects of corporate greed, government inaction and environmental racism and classism. I do this work for my three young children, Oliver, Yael and Muna and for my future children and grandchildren. I do this work for you, though we may have never met."

From Weirton West Virginia. Quite a large cloud of particulates and probably carcinogenic material as the steel production basic oxygen plant (BOP) steals its final breath from our atmosphere
Tonawanda Coke today 7PM taken from the Grand Island bridge. Offensive smell very noticeable as I rode the bike trial back to Buffalo. Smelled like the 1960s when I was a kid.

Has anyone looked into the air quality due to all the construction in parts of Buffalo.? I have live at Artspace on Main St. for 10 years surrounded with nonstop demolition and construction and have asthma now. Both activities produce different particulates and I was wondering if any monitoring has been done.
