Legislator Miller-Williams Joins Senator Tim Kennedy and Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes in Calling for $5 million in funding for Central Terminal

On Tuesday December 19, 2017, Legislator Miller Williams joined Senator Tim Kennedy and Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes in the fight to secure $5 million in funding for the Central Terminal, a District 1 project that Legislator Miller-Williams has been advocating for since 2007. Central Terminal, a landmark of Buffalo’s Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood, is in need of funds and strategic vision to fully revitalize and stabilize the historic structure and give it a renewed sense of utility and purpose for the 21st century.

Some of the much-needed work on the architectural gem include restoring the building’s arched windows, repairing crumbling masonry and elevators, addressing plumbing issues, and installing kitchens for intended restaurant space. Restoring Central Terminal and allowing the community at large to determine the best way for it to be used is a vital step in Buffalo’s overall transformation and securing this funding will allow the Central Terminal to continue to be a part Buffalo’s great renaissance.
