Buffalo Green Code Unanimously Approved
Congratulations to the City of Buffalo on its recent adoption of the Buffalo Green Code! Camiros is proud to have served as the City’s primary consultant throughout the process of creating a new Land Use Plan and form-based Unified Development Ordinance.
The Green Code creates a new framework for development in Buffalo, encouraging walkable urban neighborhoods, prioritizing the preservation of historic urban form, and promoting quality urbanism, multi-modality, and adaptive reuse through the elimination of minimum parking requirements city-wide: a first for any major City in the United States. The UDO’s place-based approach balances Buffalo’s existing urban context with economic development goals, long-term environmental stewardship and neighborhood vitality. Importantly, the Green Code is also largely a reflection of the will and values of Buffalonians, having gone through an extensive public process including over 230 public meetings and events.
We’re happy to have had the opportunity to work with the City on this exciting process! To learn more about the green code, please explore the links below!
