Mayor Brown, Council Member Fontana Launched 2017 Citywide Sidewalk Improvement Program

April 12 –  Today, Mayor Byron W. Brown, Lovejoy Council Member Richard A. Fontana and Department of Public Works Commissioner Steve Stepniak kicked-off the 2017 Citywide Sidewalk Improvement Program in Buffalo’s Lovejoy District.  The city allocated $6.1 million for citywide sidewalk work this year.

“Weather permitting, we plan to do about $6.1 million in sidewalk replacement projects in 2017, touching every Council District in Buffalo,” said Mayor Brown.  “Our strong commitment to new sidewalks is all about our continued effort to beautify neighborhoods, protect infrastructure and complement the more than $6 billion in economic development activity that’s currently underway in Buffalo.”

The 2017 sidewalk construction work, which also includes new ADA ramps, began in the Lovejoy District on Brinkman Avenue, as well as Dearborn Street in Buffalo’s North District, and along Downing Street in the South District.

“To be a safe, walkable city, we need to continue to provide strong pathways to schools, parks, and shops,” said Council Member Fontana. “This $6.1 million investment in sidewalk repairs supports our continued commitment to creating great, walkable neighborhoods in Lovejoy - and in neighborhoods citywide.”

Mayor Brown has invested over $28 million in sidewalk repairs since 2006.
