The Citizens Regional Transit Organization
has a mission statement:
Citizens Regional Transit Corporation seeks to educate the public, public officials, their authorities and agencies in the Buffalo-Niagara region about the benefits of a comprehensive transportation system including an expanded Metro Rail.
They maintain a monthly newsletter
and their next meeting is:
Keep thier work and mission in mind as you think about the right location for the new 14209 Post Office
here on Main Street. I mean why not locate the new building next to the Metro or better yet replace one of Buffalo's best examples of 'brutalism' - Utica or Summer Station - with an integrated retail, post-office subway stop building.
There is a quality even meaner than outright ugliness or disorder, and this meaner quality is the dishonest mask
of pretended order, achieved by ignoring or suppressing the real order that is struggling to exist and to be served.
- Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) from The Death and Life of Great American Cities, 1961.
The views expressed here are mine and shouldn't be confused with the mission and statements made by others.
