The Campaign for Greater Buffalo urges preservation-minded citizens to attend a public hearing and speak in favor of saving the historic Voelker's Lanes-Hotel Elmwood building at the corner of Elmwood and Amherst Streets. The Buffalo Common Council's Legislative Committee will hold a public hearing on Tuesday September 14 in Council chambers on the landmark application The Campaign prepared at the request of the Preservation Board. The Preservation Board voted unanimously in June to designate the building as a City of Buffalo landmark.

Can't make it to City Hall? You can write a message voicing your support of landmark status for Voelker's and what it means to you to the City Clerk Tianna Marks, who will copy it so all Council members have it on their desks in the hearing packet.
