BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Elmwood Crossings project designation was approved by the common council on Tuesday, December 10. But they forgot some things.
"What happened on Tuesday was a procedural error," said David Rivera, (D) Majority Leader, Niagara District.
Last month, the community raised some concerns about protecting the character of the neighborhood. So the Council made some amendments.
- Affordable housing
- Green Space
- Pedestrian Access
These amendments require state tax credit and the deadline to be approved is on Friday, the 13. So the Council had to call a special meeting Tuesday afternoon to correct their mistake.
This change allows building plans to move forward. Developers expect the project to continue into 2023.
