Cole Norgaarden

PUSH Buffalo

  • Created a flyer and slideshow presentation to be used at information sessions for local property owners interested in PUSH's Main Streets grant program.
  • Performed compliance inspections of three properties previously assisted by the program.
  • Catalogued and researched the status of 97 existing vacant sites in PUSH's Green Development Zone.
"I have a new goal of pursuing an education in architecture that combines planning, social justice, and design after I graduate from Cornell. Through my work at PUSH and exposure to people like Brendan Mehaffy at Buffalo City Hall, I think the High Road has given me a clearer picture of what the practice of city planning actually is, how I fit into it, and the steps I can take to get myself there."
