Today in City Hall

By Jill Terreri

Good morning, 

Today at 9:30 a.m., the Buffalo Urban Renewal Agency will meet to vote on a sub-recipient agreement with the city regarding HUD funds. The agreement will govern how HUD's HOME program funds are spent. The city is waiting on nearly $3 million in HOME funds that have not yet been released. 

At 3 p.m., the Preservation Board will meet in room 901. The agenda is posted below. 

In case you missed it, the Buffalo Sabres' HARBORCenter LLC, which is developing the Webster Block, has applied to the state's Brownfield Cleanup Program, which provides tax credits. HARBORCenter officials said early on that they would be seeking brownfield credits, and the agreement with the city does not allow delays in the project as a result of the project's inclusion in the state program. 

And if you're a shoe lover and you're around City Hall today or tomorrow, Mobile Soles, a shoe-store-on-the-go, will be set up in the lobby from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
