Ensuring affordable housing for our community is a key component of our Live Well Erie agenda. That's why I am very pleased to announce today my fellow Erie County Industrial Development Agency (ECIDA) Board Members joined me in supporting a $54 million 220 unit affordable housing renovation project for the Ellicott Park Townhouses in Buffalo, for which we received a bond commitment from Community Preservation Partners, the new owner, that no resident will be displaced from their current home during the renovation nor evicted by them for any potential back rent.

This is a win for our community: an important affordable housing complex is completely renovated from top to bottom and the residents won't be displaced or replaced in the process.
