Middle Main Street | Buffalo, NY

Many Parksiders use Main St on the daily. The following info might be something those commuters might want to check out. Survey link below along with info about the redesign.

The City of Buffalo Department of Public Works, Parks & Streets (DPW) is redesigning a section of Main Street between Goodell Street and Ferry Street, also known as โ€œMiddle Main.โ€

The purpose of the project is to repair and improve the streetscape. This stretch of Main Street is currently in disrepair and in need of resurfacing. Today the road consists of a four-lane roadway with a parking lane on each side.

The City aims to complete the preliminary design for this section of Main Street by Fall of 2020.

The City of Buffalo wants your feedback. One way you can participate in this process is by taking this short questionnaire. Your answers will be anonymous and confidential.

https://www.buffalony.gov/1281/Middle-Main-Street

The City of Buffalo is looking for your feedback on the preliminary design concept for this project! Please take 5-10 minutes to complete the survey below prior to Friday, August 28, 2020 and consider promoting the survey link over text, email, and social media.

Congrats Willowlawn! On your next evening stroll, be sure to check out what your neighbors have accomplished! Very Cool!!!

Willowlawn Street Island recently received designation as A National Wildlife Habitat!!


The National Wildlife Federation's mission is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future.

Willowlawns Island is landscaped with wildlife in mind. They have planted and will continue to incorporate native shrubs, vines and plants. No pesticides or chemicals are used thus providing shelter, food and water (birdbath with fountain) for their neighborhood's wildlife (mainly birds and pollinators like bees and butterflies).
Another way that they promote climate resiliency, community connections, urban forestry, water conservation, and beauty.

Parkside Community Association

The Parkside Community Association (PCA), a 501c3 not-for-profit, is the largest membership-based community association in the City of Buffalo. Founded in 1963 to fight then-prevalent racist tactics of redlining and blockbusting, it has over the years successfully implemented programs that have contributed to the security and stability of the neighborhood. The PCA prides itself on the economic and ethnic diversity of the residents.

The PCA continually meets the challenges an older urban neighborhood presents. Some of the routine challenges include absentee landlords, zoning and code issues, infrastructure deterioration and cutbacks in city services. The organization is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which is elected annually by a neighborhood membership of individuals, families, and business owners. Volunteers are the backbone of the organization. Eight or more standing and ad-hoc committees comprised of neighborhood volunteers regularly contribute an average 130 volunteer hours per month.

The PCA provides a number of regular services to the neighborhood. The association runs a summer arts program for children; publishes a neighborhood newsletter containing crime alerts, and other important public notices as necessary; provides information, referral and crime prevention services for neighborhood residents; assists block clubs; holds community meetings; and advocates for the betterment of our community. The PCA also helped to restore two vacant buildings along the major commercial boundaries and assisted some homeowners with property improvements through low-interest loans.

The PCA holds several special events that are open to the public. Most of these events are fundraisers with the added goal of bringing people into Parkside to see what an urban neighborhood has to offer.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Parkside Community Association is to advocate, communicate and act on behalf of the Parkside neighborhood to preserve and enhance the quality of life.

Vision Statement

The PCA serves as the voice of a diverse community and provides leadership to promote a safe, vibrant and historic neighborhood. By communicating residential concerns and encouraging business development, the PCA fosters revitalization, beautification and sustainability

Hello! If anyone has seen this cat, please message me. She has been gone for almost a week now. We live on Fairfield, between Main and Amherst. She is about seven and is gray with dark stripes and orange undertones to her fur, green eyes, smallish, normal weight. Her name is Delilah. Any feedback would be helpful- we miss her very much!
Hello! We lost our cat on West Winspear four days ago. She goes by chimmy or chimichanga. She is extremely friendly. She is indoor cat but she has gotten out before and usually stays close to home. She is about 1 year old. If anyone has seen her or has any information, please call or text 716-909-6290. Thank you โค
Does anybody know if the police plan to do anything about the ATVs that come down Amherst street every Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Usually between 3 and 4.
Keys (house and car) found on Crescent near W. Oakwood.
From WNY Lost & Found Pets - Nicki messaged us this at 2:15 - reported to authorities. "I saw a small white and tan Iโ€™m assuming shi tzu mix dog running down Tacoma in north buffalo. I got out the car to see if it would come to me but it took off running down the block. It ran into a backyard so Iโ€™m hoping thatโ€™s itโ€™s home, I didnโ€™t want to go into someoneโ€™s back yard, and the gate was locked any way, he slipped thru a small hole in the fence, so in case anyone posts about a small dog on Tacoma."
Today is the Grand Opening of The Parkside Collective featuring Buffalo Seamery, Loose Moose and Christopher Scinta Photography at 299 Parkside Ave. I would love to meet everyone in the community! https://www.facebook.com/events/555674928352663/
Please help me find my lost cat Charlie. He jumped out a window around 8:00pm this evening and is missing. He's very friendly, not one to scratch or bite at all! Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to call 7162252822 if you see him or know someone who has! Thank you soooo much!
From Ashlee at WNY Lost & Found Pets: "Tan and white Husky with tags seen running on Hertel/Parkside. Couldnt get close enough to read her tags."
Lost a set of keys last evening on Robie Street, or in Delaware Park walking my dogs. If anyone finds a set of keys, please call/text me at (716) 465-5427. Just for ID purposes, they have a Buffalo Bill's key on it and "worlds greatest aunt" charm on it, amongst other items. I would be truly grateful for any help!! Thank you in advance.
Is there an upcoming parkside community association meeting?
My daughter just rode my bike over to Five Below on Elmwood and locked it up while she shopped. Someone smashed the lock, tossed the helmet in the dumpster and fled. If anyone sees anyone posting a metallic pink Schwinn bike for sale anywhere please let me know. Thanks!
