"Get Involved" Thursday

Some public meetings worth going to (Thursday, May 1)

Today is a busy day for Buffalo’s concerned citizens. Kicking things off, the Preservation Board is holding public hearings on four buildings—the former School 46 at Elmwood and Vriginia, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Heath House on Soldiers Circle and Davidson House on Tillinghast Place, and Al Coppola’s “little white” Pan Am House—that it hopes will garner enough support to be named landmarks. Go to it and make your voice heard, if only to get Coppola to lay off the ridiculous threats to his Pan-Am house (901 City Hall, 3pm).

The Olmsted Conservancy is hosting a meeting tonight to present its position on the Peace Bridge plaza expansion. Will they fight, or will they fold? You have to go to find out, Dave Colligan says so (West Side Community Services, 161 Vermont St., 6:30pm).

A while back, BMHA announced that it was selling its LBJ apartments, at Main and Humboldt, to Medaille College for a couple million dollars and building a new senior complex farther north on Amherst Street for roughly $36 million. It’s an interesting, shady-sounding deal. And where the hell is BMHA getting the dough for that? Find out what they have planned at a meeting hosted by the Central Park Community Association in the proposed complex’s host community (Central Park United Methodist Church, 246 Beard Ave., 7pm).
