The Place For Small-Scale Development In Chattanooga

Bernice Radle
Buffalove Development
Bernice Radle

What can a Sun Belt city learn from a Rust Belt city about developing vacant spaces?

Start small.

Scale incrementally.

Neighborhoods - and the people in them - first.

Those are some of the values that Bernice Radle has applied in Buffalo, New York.

She is the founder and CEO of Buffalove Development and Little Wheel Restoration Co.

On Thursday here in Chattanooga, she will be the guest for the CIVIQ speaker series from Chattanooga Design Studio at The Camp House starting at 5:30 PM.

Her talk: “Small Scale Development Matters Now More Than Ever: Lessons From Buffalo And Beyond.”

I spoke with Bernice - and the Studio’s David Chalker.
