SW QUADRANT CITY-WIDE SURVEY PUBLIC MEETING

February 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

LANDMARK SOCIETY AND CITY OF ROCHESTER COMPLETE HISTORIC RESOURCES SURVEY OF SOUTHWEST ROCHESTER


COMMUNITY MEETING PLANNED FOR FEBRUARY 27 TO SHARE INFORMATION


The Landmark Society of Western New York has been contracted by the City of Rochester to conduct a citywide survey to create a current and comprehensive digitized inventory of historic properties within the city limits that identifies and documents properties of historic and/or architectural significance.

In addition to those in existing historic districts, thousands of buildings in proposed and expansion districts will be surveyed. The range of the current survey will cover all four quadrants of the city over a projected four-year timeframe. Phase I of the survey was conducted in Southeast Rochester in 2016 and Phase 2 will soon be completed in the Southwest quadrant.

The Landmark Society will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, February 27, at 5:30 p.m. at Arnett Library, 310 Arnett Boulevard in Rochester. Staff from The Landmark Society will share information with the public about the results of the Southwest quadrant survey, their partnership with the City of Rochester, and answer questions. This project is partially funded by a grant from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP).

“One important element of this survey is to identify important and perhaps overlooked historic properties that may be at-risk or may hold potential for redevelopment,” said Caitlin Meives, Landmark Society Preservation Planner. “Under-utilized historic buildings can often serve as catalysts for investment and economic development. Identifying those potential assets through survey work is an important planning tool.”
