The City of Buffalo has a rich legacy of planning, starting with Joseph Ellicottâ€™s 1804 plan for the city that established the downtown street pattern and radial grid. The Buffalo Green Code benefits from a recent history of award-winning plans, studies and guiding documents that collectively express a vision for tomorrow. The following plans are accessible through this web site, and provide guidance in the development of the land use and zoning regulations contained in the Buffalo Green Code.
