What is the Region Central initiative?
Region Central is a comprehensive, inclusive, and visionary effort to create a better future for all who live, work, play, and travel in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara region by reimagining mobility options within the Scajaquada Corridor.
Region Central is the area centrally located within the Buffalo-Niagara Region that includes Delaware Park, Buffalo State College, Forest Lawn Cemetery, and numerous cultural institutions. Buffalo neighborhoods in this area include Black Rock, Delavan Grider, Elmwood Bidwell, Fillmore-Leroy, Grant-Amherst, Hamlin Park, Masten Park, Parkside, and Upper West Side.
Home to 84,000 people, or about a third of Buffalo’s residents, Region Central is a key economic driver for Buffalo Niagara, serving as a major education hub, a growing area of commerce, and a tourist destination. With Scajaquada Creek running through its center, Region Central links to important waterways across the region and the Great Lakes watershed.
