The Turning Point: A Strategic Plan and Action Agenda for the Fruit Belt/Medical Corridor (2001)

Back in 2000, at the same moment that the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus initiative was launched, the UB Center development a neighborhood plan to guide the redevelopment of the Fruit Belt neighborhood. The plan and agenda constructed a framework to guide restoration, identified potential sources of revenue, and formulate an implementation strategy. It mapped out a direction that should be taken in revitalizing the community simultaneously with the development of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC). This involved constructing a scenario that leads to a turning point in the revitalization of the Fruit Belt resident neighborhood, which created a synergism between the Fruit Belt and Medical Campus.
