Vision Unveiled Tuesday 9/28!

The third and final event in the HKHC visioning series will take place tomorrow - Tuesday, September 28, 2010. The event will take place in the Zebro Conference Room (at Roswell Park) on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. The Zebro room is on Virginia Street between Ellicott and Elm from 5:00 - 7:00 PM.

We will have great food, a bike raffle for our younger guests, a photography exhibit from the youth participants and brief remarks from members of our community.

Take a look at the vision created by 100+ Buffalonians:

Buffalo is a safe, welcoming community that enhances the physical, social and spiritual well being of its individual residents, families, visitors and communities. By celebrating diversity and building on existing assets, Buffalo fosters a collaborative, fun, healthy environment where youth and adult citizens drive the change we seek.

We are a community where:
  • People of all ages, classes, races and ethnicities are well cared for, and there are healthy living choices accessible for all.
  • Clean, safe, and accessible places, indoor and out, are available for people to travel, move and play year-round; where parks are well maintained and inviting to all ages, waterways are safe for drinking and recreation, and streets are lively and vibrant with a preference towards human-powered activities and transportation.
  • Access to high-quality, nutritious, affordable and culturally meaningful food, sourced from local farms and community gardens when possible, is available within a reasonable distance from all Buffalo homes.
  • Abundant education resources are equally accessible to all; with these resources, residents are actively engaged in conscious decisions to live a healthy lifestyle.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at I hope to see you at the event!
