WBFO: $10M Hispanic Heritage Cultural Institute goes before city committee today
By MIKE DESMOND
Buffalo is going to get another museum and cultural center, this time covering the community’s history with the changing Latino community.
The Hispanic Heritage Council is going before the Common Council Economic Development Committee Tuesday on its designated developer agreement for five lots near Niagara and Hudson streets, to go with lots the council already owns.
It is a complicated process involving meeting a series of benchmarks to eventually become the owner and developer of the property. Heritage Council President Casimiro Rodriguez said it is important for both his community and the overall community to have the facility planned for the site.
