Bernice Radle | Buffalo, NY Owner and CEO of Buffalove Development and Little Wheel Restoration Co. Presentation Topic: Incremental Development
Now in its 15th year, the series has brought outstanding speakers to Rochester to give insight and ideas that have influenced public thinking about design in the public realm in Rochester. This year, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage and the 200th birthday of Susan B. Anthony, we have chosen and all-female lineup of speakers, which are listed in the attached postcard. With the exception of the May 20 luncheon, all of the events are free of charge and open to the public.
Radle is “all about small scale incremental neighborhood development.” Her companies Buffalove Development and Little Wheel Restoration Co. are based in Buffalo, NY, but do work in other small rust belt cities. She is also the Vice Chair of the Buffalo Zoning Board of Appeals, a faculty member of the Incremental Development Alliance and a VIP with Buffalo’s Young Preservationists. She was a host and house rehabber on American Rehab Buffalo (DIY Network and HGTV) and her work has been featured in the NYTimes, Huffington Post, City Lab, Preservation Magazine, Old Home Magazine, and other publications. She is proud to have a team that is 50% female – even in construction – and believes that “neighborhood strength isn’t defined by how expensive the homes are, it is defined by how inclusive it is to all walks of life.”
To mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the 200th anniversary of the birth of suffrage pioneer Susan B. Anthony, the University of Rochester is organizing an institution-wide celebration to call attention to the achievements, contributions, and influence of Rochester women, both at the University and in the greater community.
