Anyone who has dealt with the building approval system in Buffalo City Hall knows it is complicated, tangled and somewhat circular. That could show at Tuesday afternoon's Common Council Legislation Committee, as NOCO asks for a zoning change for a house and double lot it recently bought on Elmwood Avenue.

Chason Affinity

After 30 years of plans and altered plans and new plans, the way may finally be clear for a major construction project at Elmwood and Forest avenues, replacing buildings past their prime. However, there is almost certain to be a lawsuit against the Chason Affinity project.

Two Buffalo Police officers were injured during a traffic stop on Forest Avenue Saturday afternoon.

Sixteen year old Ronald Miles reversed the minivan he was driving, crashing into the patrol car and injuring both officers. One officer fired his weapon as Miles sped away. The vehicle stopped further along Forest Avenue, and Miles and another occupant took off on foot. Both were later taken into custody. The Minivan was discovered to be stolen.

Miles and his juvenile companion face multiple charges.
