Corey Auerbach Quoted in Buffalo News Article About a Residential Care Center Coming to Buffalo's Fruit Belt

Corey Auerbach, Land Use & Zoning Practice Area co-chair, was quoted in the Buffalo News article “Mental Health Crisis Services Coming to Former Hospice Facility in Fruit Belt.” This week, after St. John Baptist Church and Recovery Options Made Easy (ROME), a Gowanda nonprofit agency, won city approval, a former hospice facility in Buffalo’s Fruit Belt will become a residential care center for mental health patients in crisis. 

Corey represents ROME, who “wants to convert a one-story building at 111 Maple Street into a medically supervised treatment operation, with two wings for overnight patients, a day-treatment wing, and a separate behavioral health urgent care facility that will be open to the public.”

“The setting is naturally calm and therapeutic, geared towards healing residents,” Corey wrote in the application to the Buffalo Zoning Board of Appeals for a needed “use” variance, which was granted on Wednesday, March 16.
