Rick Morris (Sierra Club, In the City for Good, Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, Rochester EarthFest) is convening a community review meeting of the revised Rochester City Comprehensive Plan.


"Rochester's comprehensive plan is being updated for the first time in 40 years. It will set the vision of Rochester's development and governance for a long time. At stake are the vision and principles we care about: social justice, public health, environmental quality, affordability, accessibility."




Attendees will review the Revised Section 3 of P2S: Comprehensive Plan
