Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz today revealed a potential riverfront stadium plan for the Buffalo Bills … but it’s from 1968.

Discussion about a new stadium in Buffalo picked up last week when Gov. Andrew Cuomo named the first five members of the New Stadium Working Group as agreed to in the Bills new 10-year lease with the state and Erie County.

“This group,” said Bills president/CEO Russ Brandon in a statement released by the team, “was designed to include representatives from New York State, Erie County and the Buffalo Bills. The group’s mandate is to begin to explore ‘(i) the development and construction of a new stadium either on the [Ralph Wilson Stadium site] or on another location in Erie County, or (ii) a substantial renovation of [Ralph Wilson Stadium].’”

“We are confident our fans will be excited about the numerous changes taking place on our stadium campus and we look forward to being near completion by the start of the 2014 season.”
