There will be a public forum held seeking input on the redevelopment potential of a vacant, city-owned property at 151 Mt. Hope Ave.

The 1.8-acre site is located near the east bank of the Genesee River, south of I-490 in the South Wedge neighborhood. The forum will be at 6 p.m. on March 29 in the meeting room of Hamilton Tower at 185 Mt. Hope Ave. It will include a brief informational presentation regarding the site, followed by input from the community.

"The future of this site is a critical piece to building on the momentum we've had in repositioning and connecting our Mt. Hope Avenue corridor, the Genesee River waterfront and our Center City," said Mayor Lovely Warren in a statement.

As we work to transform our city, creating safer more vibrant neighborhoods, more jobs and better educational opportunities for our children, we are here to listen to what residents and business owners have to say about opportunities in their neighborhood."
