MBBA hell - that Aaron Bartley and the folks at PUSH Buffalo have been calling attention to and working to change. The right thing to do in this particular case is to release 28 Coe Place from MBBA's callous grip and turn it over immediately to a qualified individual for re-hab and home ownership. This house has some serious deferred maintenance issues, yet I believe after a reasonable investment and commitment by a new owner, especially as Coe Place is adjacent to Artspace, the project will result in tremendous positives for the right individual and the neighborhood.
I'll be gathering the "Friends of Coe Place" together once more - we changed the future of the Hamilton Ward House right across the street at 19 Coe Place a few months ago. I'm confident that a carefully focused and cyber campaign will turn the tide here at 28 Coe Place, too.
