Buffalo Business First has started what I hope will be a weekly article called The Scoreboard, which provides updates to older headlines (in BBF’s case, from a year earlier). [And for all I know, The Scoreboard has been around for a while, but this week’s paper is the first time I noticed it.]
This could be a very upbeat section, as it’s a gentle reminder that just because the glitzy headlines are gone doesn’t mean that the project is, too. In this week’s section, the BBF writes about the Delaware Avenue high-rise, the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel, and the proposed new retail development at Delaware and Sheridan drive. All are moving forward.
The Scoreboard could also focus on the failures, but this week, at least, decided not to. BBF tends to be more generally upbeat than the Buffalo News, and spotlighting the positive ventures is a great way to demonstrate that this area is not all about politics, and actually does make real progress.
