The Common Council will meet in regular session at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers and will consider an agreement that would make way for the construction of single-family homes and a community center on the East Side.

St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy is developing Gospa Village on a block near Sycamore Street and Walden Avenue on property now owned by the city.

The development will serve at-risk women and their children.

Also, the Brown administration has said it will wait to seek Common Council approval on a 15-year contract for city firefighters until the control board has a chance to review it.

Council members had expected that it would take up the contract when it meets on Tuesday,but the administration will not seek lawmakers’ approval until after the Buffalo Fiscal Stability Authority meets June 19.

The control board is in advisory status and does not have the power to approve labor contracts, but is granted a review and comment period.

Members of the Buffalo Professional Firefighters Association approved the contract in a vote earlier this month.
