Are you wondering what the Buffalo Bills Stadium Community Benefits Agreement looks like? Chairperson April Baskin of the Erie County Legislature will talk about why it’s so hard to win community benefits in our region, what benefits were achieved in the stadium deal – from construction to ongoing vending and retail to annual charitable giving, how oversight and monitoring will work, and more. We’ll also discuss Level Up Erie County, a new small business assistance program, and the proposed Erie County Public Art Act, which seeks to develop the County’s financial support of public art and make art accessible to all Erie County residents.
