2017 Advocacy Agenda Expanded – Development and Construction

The Buffalo Niagara region is undergoing an economic revitalization, however the future success of new construction projects and redevelopment is not guaranteed.  Disjointed development policies and overly-burdensome regulations, often unique to Buffalo and New York State, create a challenging environment for projects to move forward.  To build upon our momentum and truly achieve new growth, policies impacting local development must be aligned to achieve the prosperous future envisioned for Buffalo Niagara.

LNG program will bring energy to New York’s economy

The Partnership is proud to announce that we can cross another one of our top priorities off the do-list list. Earlier this week, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) finally outlined its program to allow the construction and operation of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities in New York.

For far too long, New York has been the only state in the country without an LNG program, forcing New Yorkers to miss out on the real economic opportunity that LNG offers.
