Buffalo continues to play host this week to the annual Congress for New Urbanism meeting. This year's event is titled The Resilient Community.  The organization promotes walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development and sustainable communities. WBFO's Eileen Buckley says the event includes conversations about immigrants and economic development.
