The Empire State Development (ESD) Board of Directors met today and authorized ESD to move forward with the East Side Commercial District Program, a new initiative for the City of Buffalo as part of Governor Cuomo’s previously announced $50 million East Side Corridor Economic Development Fund (ESCEDF). The program will provide $2 million in funding to four business districts for building renovations for small businesses in some of the East Side’s most vital commercial corridors. Funding will help to revive traditional main streets and commercial corridors through the preservation of historic buildings, funding of capital improvements in neighborhood assets, and expansion of commercial opportunities in these neighborhoods.
