Bailey Fights Blight
Bailey Fights Blight is a community-based project working to improve public spaces and re-imagine vacant or underutilized properties on Bailey Avenue. Through community cleanups, guerilla gardening, and public art, Bailey Fights Blight is helping to redevelop one of Buffalo’s major East Side commercial corridors.
Bailey Fights Blight is committed to fostering an inclusive and participatory process. Have an idea or suggestion for improvement? Let us know!
