5/7/14: Poloncarz Statement on Potential Future Location of Bills’ Stadium


ERIE COUNTY, NY— Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz today released the following statement in response to remarks made by National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell concerning the Buffalo Bills future in Erie County and the possibility of a new stadium for the team:

“I, like Governor Andrew Cuomo, am committed to keeping the Bills in Buffalo for generations to come regardless of who the new owner may be. As evidence of this commitment, consultants have been retained on behalf of the state and county to prepare options for the consideration of prospective owners that will include (1) a new stadium to be constructed at one or more possible locations and (2) the further renovation or retrofit of Ralph Wilson Stadium beyond the renovations currently being undertaken. At this time, all options should be part of the discussion and nothing should be disregarded. We look forward to commencing these discussions with an owner who is likewise committed to keeping the team here in its first, and what should be its only, home territory of Buffalo and Erie County.”
