Jefferson Ave Streetscape Improvements

Don’t miss the chance to provide your thoughts and feedback to planners from the city of Buffalo as they prepare to make improvements to the Jefferson Avenue streetscape between Main St. and E. Utica St.  With the demolition of the Canisius parking ramp, we have an opportunity to beautify Jefferson Avenue and make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists. 

The public meeting will be held at Canisius College Science Hall, Room 1013A at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December  8.  

See the flyer above for more details. Masks are required. If you have questions, contact Mary Rockwell at rockwel3@canisius.edu.
