The Buffalo Comprehensive Plan is a physical land use plan for the City of Buffalo. It provides a strategic framework to guide public and private investment in the city for the period 2004 to 2025.

The Plan recognizes that the City of Buffalo is a defined community, with its own needs, strengths, values, and identity. Buffalo is also the regional center of Buffalo Niagara and occupies a strategic central location in the Golden Horseshoe bi-national urban region, which stretches around Lake Ontario from the Greater Toronto Area to Rochester.

The city is conceived as a prosperous, green regional center providing a high quality of life for all its citizens. It will have a thriving, progressive economy with leading edge companies; a socially inclusive, harmonious population; prestigious medical, academic, and public institutions; and fully restored and enhanced natural, cultural, and built heritage.

The Buffalo Comprehensive Plan has won the following award(s):

2009 Congress for the New Urbanism Charter Awards - “The Region: Metropolis, City, and Town”
