PPG Unveils Community Agenda for 2015

Events, Newson January 16th, 2015Comments Off

PPG has released its 2015 Community Agenda.  One hundred seventy eight community groups, ranging from block clubs to social service agencies, from theaters to prisoner rights groups, have come together to identify the top policy actions that state and local governments can take in the coming year to build a better Buffalo-Niagara.  Each fall PPG leads a democratic process among its partners to determine the Community Agenda for the coming year.  This year’s Agenda addresses topics such as community-oriented policing of the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority Property, high-quality early learning opportunities, public financing of elections, recycling, high road economic development, and language access.
