BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Buffalo Planning Board is pushing forward a plan for a new event center at the Outer Harbor – and now it is up to the Buffalo Common Council.

New York State is developing the project through the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation.

Leaders with the organization say they’re excited to bring more music to the waterfront.
