Proposals for how to use the waterfront along the Outer Harbor were rated Wednesday by the public in back-to-back planning sessions at WNED Studios.

The decision-making process, led by Perkins + Will, a San Francisco-based planning organization, is focusing on the 160 acres of industrial land along Lake Erie, and how it is to be integrated into the larger 350-acre tract that includes the newly designated Buffalo Harbor State Park.

"We’re showing three ways to package the ideas for the waterfront, and in the end we will see what people prefer,” said Karen Alschuler, Perkins + Will’s global leader for urban design.

Take a look at the proposals – eight categories packaged with a different emphasis into three groupings – prepared by Perkins + Will. They were shaped in July by public input collected from more than 600 people at three public forums.
