1 Massachusetts Avenue – Former Episcopal Home Property – The Council adopted a resolution, sponsored by Niagara District Council Member David A. Rivera, requesting that New York State honor the City of Buffalo Historic Landmark status of the Hutchison Memorial Chapel and Thornton Memorial Hall and makes every effort to preserve both of these buildings. The resolution also requests that Empire State Development ensure the safety and security of the entire property, understanding its recent problematic status in the community and makes every effort to ensure it will not be a source of blight and vandalism.
