An item was filed with the City of Buffalo Common Council regarding the Episcopal Church Home at 24 Rhode Island Street. That filing was in relation to a June 30, 2014 Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) document that informed “involved agencies” of ESDC’s Determination of No Significant Adverse Effect on the environment of an abatement, demolition, and stabilization project for the site. It was received as an informational item requiring no action and filed at a special session of the Buffalo Common Council on July 29, 2014. Preservation Buffalo Niagara (PBN) has reviewed ESDC’s Determination of No Significant Effect on the Environment and other material necessary to provide its membership and the public with further information on the matter.
