The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy has posted its position statement on the former expressway. See it here. It is the BOPC’s stated position that the former expressway should never have been imposed on Delaware Park, and it should be removed. In the event that it can be shown that the long-term needs of the community require the taking of public parkland, then any new roadway must be constructed in a manner and in design consistent with Olmsted’s goals as articulated above. There must be free and unimpeded access from The Meadow to Hoyt Lake, with the Delaware Bridge restored to park use. To date, none of the proposed plans meet this criteria.
