Our fair city has been in a development mode for several years now, starting on the West side (see D,Youville) and Downtown (see CC alumnus Rocco Termini and the late Mark Croce and now wonderful Doug Jemal) and Larkinville (thank you Zemsky family and now Jake Schneider). Finally developers are discovering the East side. Jefferson Aveune has been waking up for a couple of years now and the Record Theater property across from CC looks like it is finally taking off in earnest. There have been some nice in fill houses in the Lafayette Street neighborhood and two CC alumni (brothers, I think) are starting development of the once CC owned group of houses on Florida Street. All of this will benefit Canisius. In the mean time Alma Mater has been stagnating. This is a seriously bad state of affairs,IMO. Especially after the Demske/Cooke years of saving the Hamlin Park neighborhood. Now what should become "The University of St. Peter Canisius in Buffalo" is, hopefully, reawakening with plans for a $50M development program of her own (will that be enough?). But where is the P.R. campaign? This needs to be a big deal done right. Canisius is East Side/West Side, as she straddles Main Street. Let's become part of all of this. After the potential of a completed Science Hall is realized, next up (and into in the planning stage ASAP) must be a serious Events Center. But the Athletics program needs to grow now, to be ready for what must come next. By the way, I forgot to mention the Medical Campus.

Well said and I hope that others on this board communicate the same message to Hurley and others at CC. 50 Million isn't enough and we all know it. I'd prefer not to drop another dime into Koessler. We have lots of land behind The Commons. Repurpose that land for playing fields. Use the land on Florida Street as a some sort of field house. We've been waiting too long for the basics and since Cooke passed on we've slipped. Sorry but it's the truth.
