Buffalo Bills – Proposed New Stadium – SEQR Information

This page contains information regarding the State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQR”) process for the Buffalo Bills Proposed New Stadium. The SEQR process examines potential environmental impacts and social and economic considerations related to a proposed action and encourages communication among government agencies, project sponsors and the general public.

A public scoping meeting was previously held on July 14, 2022 to garner public input on the scope of the SEQR review for the project. On October 27, 2022 a public hearing was held at the Orchard Park Community Activity Center to garden public input on the Technical Addendum and draft EAF Parts 2 and 3. Following the public hearing, public comments were collected until November 2, 2022.

On January 19, 2023, the Erie County Legislature adopted a determination of significance (negative declaration) for the project. Below are the links to the determination of significance and Final Environmental Assessment Form that were completed for the project.
