Buffalo Niagara Partnership released its agenda for 2014 that emphasizes spurring trade and the economy.
The Buffalo News reports that Peace Bridge plaza improvements, the extension of the Route 219 expressway, transportation projects, brownfield cleanup efforts, initiatives to encourage local entrepreneurs to start businesses, economic-development initiatives from the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council, and Gov. Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion investment plan are priorities.
The newspaper quotes Dottie Gallagher-Cohen, president of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, “Our region is changing, and we have more collaboration. It is really important that we align with these efforts and speak with one voice.”
Other priority projects include urging New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation to approve rules that would allow new liquefied natural gas fueling stations to be built in New York and improving trade with Canada.
