In response to the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on downtown Rochester, a task force is being assembled to identify priority issues to be addressed.
The Downtown Rochester Task Force includes members from the City of Rochester, Destination Medical Center, Diversity Council, Experience Rochester, Mayo Clinic, Rochester Area Economic Development Agency, Inc., Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce, and Rochester Downtown Alliance.
The Downtown Rochester Task Force invites the community and downtown businesses to participate in upcoming work sessions to share specific challenges they are experiencing related to downtown. Together, attendees will identify both priority concerns and solutions. Once key priorities are identified, an action plan will be created to address each concern.
Four work sessions—three in-person and one virtual—are planned.
- Monday, February 27 from 6-7 p.m., Fagan Studio and Studio 324
- Friday, March 3 from 9-10 a.m., Chateau Theatre
- Monday, March 6 from 2-3 p.m., Pasquale’s Neighborhood Pizzeria
- Tuesday, March 14 from 10-11 a.m. (virtual)
The Downtown Rochester Task Force will use an accelerated model in creating an action plan, which will allow participants to identify concerns and work on solutions quickly. The goal is to present an action plan by May 2023 to guide the Downtown Rochester Task Force moving forward.
Please register for this event. It is free of charge. We would like to know how many are attending prior to the event.
