County Legislature Declares Stadium Regional Asset

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – The Erie County Legislature has officially declared Dunn Tire Park as a regional asset.

The designation allows the county to provide $5 million in capital improvements for the city-owned facility. The deal is part of a five-and-a-half year lease agreement, in which the Buffalo Bisons baseball team will operate the stadium and provide day to day maintenance.

The Common Council is expected to consider the lease agreement at its next meeting on Tuesday.
