Brown seeks delay in razing of West Side homes for bridge plaza

Jun 9, 2012

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown is hoping to stall the demolition of several West Side buildings to make way for Peace Bridge plaza improvements.

Brown sent a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo Friday, seeking Cuomo's support in a last ditch effort to stop the demolitions. Brown said there are still valid concerns and unanswered questions surrounding the plaza project.

He accused the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority of a lack of transparency.
