Erie County Legislator Patrick Burke sought assistance from University at Buffalo’s Department of Urban and Regional Planning developing strategies for Seneca Street’s revitalization. A graduate Urban DesignStudio comprised of urban planning and architecture students was initiated to analyze multiple aspects of the neighborhood. This included the composition of an inventory of existing buildings, and an analysis of the area’s history, traffic, streetscape, open space, culture and population. The goal o f t h is studio is to suggest a framework f o r the stabilization and growth of the Seneca-Cazenovia neighborhood with a focus on Seneca Street as the core of redevelopment. Our focus is on community-based and community-lead revitalization. The Seneca-Cazenovia neighborhood can thrive once again by capitalizing on its assets; a historically significant park, unique architecture, a community with strong networks and long-term residents, and a desire to make the neighborhood a great place to live. The corridor is ripe for change, and this plan will help direct growth towards long lasting sustainability.
