Buffalo has thousands of city-owned vacant lots, especially on Buffalo’s East Side. What are the next steps for positive, community-oriented development for these lots? Donna Latham-Edwards, founder of the Impacted Families Project, and Tim Chen, Executive Director of Grassroots Gardens, are Vacant Lots Task Force members. They discuss what community members want from the vacant land in their neighborhoods and recommendations for how to get there.
