The state agency in charge of redeveloping Buffalo's waterfront is in the market for a new leader.
Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation Board Chairman Jordan Levy says he resigned his post to avoid any potential conflict of interest. A company Levy controls is going to be applying for a state grant to help entreprenuers.
Levy said he would have been happy to stay on, but he couldn't risk his private sector business negatively impacting all the progress being made at Canalside.
Governor Andrew Cuomo must name a new chair for the Harbor Corporation.
