In partnership with Great Lakes ExperienceRiverkeeper and Green Options Buffalo, 21st Century Parks urges the following guidelines be used for the entire waterfront campus:

  • Assure continuous public access -from the water’s edge
  • Eliminate industrial zoning
  • Assure lake related uses
  • Establish limits for parking for all new development
  • Provide additional public transportation, including multi-modal strategies to Outer Harbor – bikes, water taxis, ferries and electric trolleys
  • Zone for building height limits to provide vistas or buffers
  • Dedicate parkland to protect against over-development
  • Use sustainable energy sources and practices throughout
  • Complete Olmsted’s legacy by connecting our greenways from Downtown to the Waterfront
  • Dedicate this Park to Olmsted; celebrating his prescient concepts in the revitalization of Buffalo’s Waterfront.
