WNY Environmental Alliance Parks & Recreation Working Group Meeting- 8 to 9am at Community Foundation of Greater Buffalo, 726 Exchange St., Suite 525. On the heels of the public meetings held by the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) to determine a development plan for the Outer Harbor by the end of September, it is more important than ever for the environmental community to speak in a unified voice regarding our priorities for this unique waterfront landscape.  Key goals for  meeting: Provide an overview discussion of the site context of the outer harbor landscape and ECHDC public input process. Identify shared values on the highest and best services this landscape can provide to the citizens of WNY.  Discuss WNY Environmental Alliance Action Item for the 2015 Action Agenda.  While there will be many different viewpoints shared, by the end of the conversation it is our goal to establish a position paper that highlights shared values that can be submitted to ECHDC.  **If you are unable to attend in person, consider participating over the phone: Dial:  (312) 757-3111 Access Code: 309-045-237.
