Sometimes numbers can tell a better story than words could ever do. #TheNewBNCC means big things for Buffalo. An increase in economic impact means lower taxes for Erie County residents. A larger convention center ushers in the opportunity for more jobs for Erie County residents. The new convention center means that Buffalo can remain competitive amongst a greater number of peer cities. And when a new convention center is built, more people will discover the unexpected Buffalo.
But doing nothing is not an option. If we want to see Buffalo grow and succeed, a new convention center plays a role in our city’s economic vitality.
