barry l robinson both buffalo democrats helped the erie county legisla ture to approve a measure endorsing the inclusion of space for an erie com munity college physical education complex in the proposed downtown buffalo baseball stadium the legislature with blackwell and robinson both voting yes passed the resolution which aims for the consolidation of the physical education com plex with the stadium which is proposed for a site on seneca st ad jacent to the college's city . campus blackwell said this proposal represents an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone and save the county a considerable amount of money in the process - the resolution notes that the college is facing a mandate from the u s office of civil rights to provide students with . instructional space for the city campus physical edu cation programming the developers of the stadium meanwhile have accommodated the col leges needs by recom mending to county officials the construction of two unfinished lower levels that could be developed into a physical education facility at a later date according to robinson the 2.5 million price tag â€” for construction of the space and its subsequent development â€” is sub stantially lower than the costs would be later if the college were to construct its own physical education building another advantage he said would be that the field access tunnel and game equipment storage area are already included in the stadium and would not require additional county expenditures the developers have extended us the courtesy of making this proposal now it's up to us to decide whether that's the best choice and to go ahead with it said robinson the resolution asks the county executive to form ally advise the legislature before april ist as to whether he supports the legislature's endorsement of the plan to include ecc's physical education facilities within the base ball stadium workman in new post m & t bank has announced the promotion of daniel s workman jr
