Buffalo Turning the Corner Final Report

Report by Henry Louis Taylor,Jr., Robert Silverman, Li Yin
June 2019

In this report, Buffalo Turning the Corner aims to understand how local policies and practices related to housing and neighborhood development drive the neighborhood change process, especially in communities at-risk of becoming unaffordable. The objectives are to: (1) identify factors producing undesirable neighborhood change, (2) develop a strategy for recognizing the most at-risk neighborhoods, and (3) design an approach to monitoring vulnerable neighborhoods and preventing undesirable change from occurring in them.

The Turning the Corner project remains the sole responsibility of the authors. As such, the full report does not represent the position of the City of Buffalo, and the School of Architecture and Planning does not take policy positions on the work of its faculty.
