Mayor Byron W. Brown will deliver his state of the city address during a luncheon Friday in the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

The luncheon typically is attended by hundreds of people and, in the past, has generated headlines.

Last year, the city’s plan to turn over a prime piece of waterfront real estate to Ellicott Development for an apartment, hotel, banquet and office development, known as The Carlo, was unveiled. The city has not yet sold the title to that property to the company, although a designated developer agreement has been executed.

Also this week:

• The Common Council will meet in regular session at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers at City Hall, and will consider a four-month contract extension between the city and Rural/Metro Medical Service for ambulance coverage. If the extension is granted, it would leave the existing contract in place until June 30.

• The Buffalo Urban Development Corp.’s Governance Committee will meet at noon Wednesday in the fourth-floor conference room at 95 Perry St.

• The Buffalo Urban Development Corp.’s Downtown Committee will meet at noon Thursday in Room 901 at City Hall.
