Local Landmark Hearing Summary

In an unanimous vote Thursday, the Buffalo Preservation Board decided to present a proposal to the common council to make the Trico Building a local landmark. Several individuals, some representing local preservation groups and others as concerned citizens, spoke in favor of the local landmark designation, which would allow the board, in its advisory capacity, to have more input into decisions surrounding the future of Trico Plant #1 Building.

The common council meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 27th at 2pm in the common council chambers at City Hall. An agenda for that meeting can be found here. We strongly encourage everyone to go and show your support for the local landmarking of Trico.

A number of local media outlets covered the important public meeting.
