Organization behind push for BID to host informational sessions

The Partnership for Downtown Rochester will continue community engagement efforts with virtual and in-person informational sessions on March 29.

The group is working toward creation of a Business Improvement District (BID). The sessions, facilitated by Highland Planning, will provide details on formation of a BID, followed by public input.

There is a virtual session from noon to 1 p.m., with registration required. The in-person session runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Bausch & Lomb Public Library Building, 115 South Ave., in the Gleason Auditorium.

“In order for a BID to properly serve the vibrant downtown community, public engagement is essential,” Galin Brooks, executive director of the Partnership for Downtown Rochester, said in a news release. “We’re so excited to have the opportunity to meet directly with downtown residents, workers, visitors, and business owners, and look forward to continued collaboration on this project.”

Feedback on the BID also can be shared via email [email protected]

Documents and details about the efforts to create a BID are available on the organization’s website.
