The public is invited to attend a workshop to review preliminary recommendations and offer feedback on a retail marketing study and commercial revitalization plan for the Perry Choice and First Ward Neighborhood.

The free workshop begins at 6 p.m. Thursday at Perry Auditorium, 416 Louisiana St., and is an opportunity to generate ideas for storefronts, to attract investors and to spur new development for the neighborhood.

The project’s consultant, Peter J. Smith & Co., will use the results of the public workshop, market analysis and urban design techniques to develop a revitalization plan for the Perry Choice Neighborhood commercial corridors.

The session is hosted by the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority, Seneca Gaming Corp., Perry Choice Planning Initiative and the University at Buffalo Center for Urban Studies
