Seeking ideas for the future of the Broadway Market and Buffalo

There will be a public meeting set for February 11 from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Matt Urban Center located at 1081 Broadway.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — If you're a Buffalo resident, you have the chance to give your two cents on what should happen to revive the Broadway Market and other future development as part of its overall 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan for Buffalo.    

The city of Buffalo has pumped more money in for various improvements at the market ranging from WI-FI, to a new commercial kitchen, to a new police substation, and planned facade changes.

And as part of a $50 million dollar Eastside Improvement Program, the state is pouring in an additional $4 million to develop a master plan with the goal of making the market more of a year round destination beyond those traditional Easter and Christmas crowds. 

To help guide its overall planning and the use of federal funding over the next five years the city is now looking for public comments on an online survey. That would include elements like affordable housing and community development. 

There will also be a public meeting set for February 11 from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Matt Urban Center located at 1081 Broadway.
