Fisher Associates was part of a project team that developed the Infrastructure and Public Realm Master Plan for Downtown Buffalo. The plan delineated a master list of streetscape and public space improvements and provided a strategic approach for implementation. In addition, the plan identified the importance that each recommended project will have on downtown’s overall function, appeal and marketability in order to leverage public and private investment.
Fisher’s role in the project included conducting an inventory of existing conditions, public engagement including coordinating and holding key stakeholder meetings and interviews, creating and maintaining a stakeholder database, and assistance with public meetings and workshops. Fisher also assisted with the identification of priority precincts for possible future infrastructure investments and formulation of recommendations and strategies for implementation.
