Landmark designation hearing

On Wednesday, July 19, the City of Rochester’s Preservation Board and Planning Commission will hold a special hearing to consider the historic campus of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School for City landmark designation. The campus is officially eligible for listing in the State and National Registers of Historic Places; city landmark designation would recognize the significance of the site and help ensure that future development efforts will be in keeping with the historic architecture and landscape.

The Landmark Society, along with a coalition of organizations that includes Highland Park Neighborhood Association, Highland Park Conservancy, Community Design Center Rochester, and Historic Brighton, supports the landmark designation of this highly significant historic campus.

We encourage you to submit comments in support of landmark designation and, better yet, to attend the public hearing on July 19th and voice your support in person. Written comments can be submitted to Peter Siegrist and Jill Wiedrick, Senior Planners with the City of Rochester.

>>Visit our website for details about why we support landmark designation.

Wednesday, July 19 |  7:00 PM | City Hall, City Council Chambers, Room 302A
