Buffalo LIVING Tour organizers have completed their lineup for the first tour of 2020 as they enter their ninth year.
“We’ve got incredible variety to show off, since we have no geographical barriers,” explains Paul D. Maurer, the organizer of the July 13-18 tour.
Because of Coronavirus pandemic restrictions, the tour will be done virtually by the architects, owners or agents of the developers each day.
They will spend 20 minutes on Zoom showing still pictures and video of their location. Up to 500 people will be able to click on and view the presentation live. Then, for 10 minutes, questions can be asked by the people who have viewed the webinar.
The Monday through Friday sessions will be at 6 p.m. and the Saturday session at 11 a.m.
For anyone who misses a live session, there will be a link for later viewing on the BuffaloLIVINGTour.net website.
The program, as in the past, is free and available to anyone who can access Zoom whether on their computer, tablet device or smart phone.
