I do not support any project that does not include the renovation of Midtown Plaza. Midtown Plaza is the “heart” of the city and must be dealt with at the same time.
-David Bayer, the Whitehurst Co.

I believe that most of the proposed project is a waste of taxpayers’ money. In fact, of the three, the only project we do need is a performing-arts center. This is especially so considering the level of cultural interests in our area. The Auditorium Theatre is in no way comparable to Shea’s Buffalo either, as far as acoustics or amenities.
-Stuart Dizak

I believe that it would be a great asset to the city of Rochester and the Rochester region either way. The performing-arts center would certainly be the icing on the cake.
-Mark A. Welker

Surely no sensible person thinks a $230 million theater/bus station would spark a “Renaissance” of any kind. Say it with me: B-O-O-N- D-O-G-G-L-E.
-Michael Hess, CEO, Skooba Design/RoadWired
