BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The New Stadium Working Group is considering locations in Amherst and Niagara Falls in addition to Buffalo and Orchard Park, members of the panel told Eyewitness News.

Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster, a member of the 21 person panel, said the Cataract City and other locations outside Erie County are being looked at for a new home for the Buffalo Bills.

Sources familiar with the group said UB North in Amherst is also being reviewed.

The New Stadium Working Group was formed under the current lease for Ralph Wilson Stadium between the team and Erie County to explore possibilities for either a new facility or a massive renovation of the existing stadium.
