Neighborhood Types

Buffalo’s Comprehensive Plan is the result of intense input from thousands of Buffalonians who together crafted a vision for the city’s future based on the principles of smart growth and sustainability.

The Plan makes clear that Buffalo is composed of a series of unique places – neighborhoods, employment districts, college campuses, and the like – each with its own mix of land uses, building types, and public spaces that create a particular character and identity. The Buffalo Green Code will take all the elements people like about these communities and create detailed land use plans and a new zoning code that will help make them even better places in which to live, work, invest, and play.

Stay tuned for more information about how the unique places Buffalonians cherish will form the basis for determining the future development of Buffalo!
