The Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s first-ever Cross Council Agenda Rollout was a huge success earlier this month as we aimed to better promote collaboration, coordination and networking among the Partnership’s five councils.
Over the past few years, the Partnership has led the private sector’s involvement in the development and implementation of One Region Forward, Buffalo Niagara’s regional sustainability plan. Transportation is one of the give major components (or “big ideas”) of One Region Forward.
The plan complied and analyzed data related to transportation patterns in our region and many of the results are startling, if not alarming. According to data from One Region Forward, we spend more time commuting than ever before. Compared to 1970, we drive twice as much, with more people driving alone.
For well over a decade, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership has collaborated with the cities of Buffalo and Niagara Falls and the counties of Erie and Niagara to produce the Regional Agenda.
