Dean Shibley Speaks at March Breakfast Meeting Western New York Chapter

The Dean of University at Buffalo’s School of Architecture and Planning, Robert (Bob) Shibley, was the featured speaker at the March 16th Breakfast Meeting.  As the lead facilitator of the Governor appointed committee to identify the best location for a new downtown Buffalo train station, Bob provided the full house with an insider’s perspective on how the process has worked to date.  Beyond the physical aspects of a location, several other factors were discussed when making a recommendation of this nature.  What some consider a “slam dunk” is equally met with reasoning on why the location should be located elsewhere.


This project has gained a tremendous amount of interest from the local community and there is an opportunity to participate in the process.  On Tuesday, March 21st from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM, there will be a Public Open House at the Buffalo Museum of Science.  There will be a 30 minutes of presentations then an opportunity for questions and comments.
