Chairperson Grant, Legislator Hogues to Host Downtown Stadium Discussion


            Erie County Legislature Chairperson Betty Jean Grant (D-Buffalo) and County Legislator Timothy R. Hogues (D-Buffalo) will sponsor a community meeting to discuss the feasibility of a domed stadium and convention center in Buffalo from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, February 21, at the Erie Community College downtown campus, 121 Ellicott Street, Buffalo.

             Pat Freeman from WUFO Radio and the Greater Buffalo Sports and Entertainment Complex will provide a video presentation and take questions and comments from the audience; the public is welcome. Among the invited guests are Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz, as well as members of the Buffalo Common Council and Erie County Legislature.

             Organizers believe that the Buffalo Bills and County Officials are recognizing that the building of a new stadium sometime in the future will go a long way of ensuring that the team remains in Erie County, and that the conversation regarding this stadium must begin now. 

             The meeting is free and open to the public, and parking will be available behind the Flickinger Athletic Center.
