Live on the Loop with Hinge Neighbors

All are welcome—Community wide, inclusive event! Presented by our friends at Hinge Neighbors…

We included the Inner Loop North Infill Project in our 2021 Five to Revive to draw attention to the importance of this highway infill project and its potential to begin to right some of the racial inequities that urban renewal projects like the Inner Loop perpetuated. Our friends at Hinge Neighbors have been working alongside residents to advocate for a neighborhood-driven and community-centered approach. We’ll be taking a day to celebrate with them on June 5th!

Hinge Neighbor’s LIVE ON THE LOOP is a community wide event taking place Sunday, June 5, from 12 PM to 3 PM. The event celebrates the upcoming Inner Loop North highway removal and reconnection of Rochester’s 16th ward. The Inner Loop divided this neighborhood
that is now only connected by the Scio Street bridge. With major support from AARP, this event transforms the bridge into a re-imagined neighborhood for a day.

The SCIO STREET BRIDGE will be closed off to traffic and open to pedestrians. Enjoy live music, games, children’s activities, and food trucks. Numerous fruit trees, a lawn, colorful picnic tables and wooden benches will be placed along the bridge. Community health, design, and equity pop-up kiosks will be present.

New NYS Historic Barn Tax Credit program

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation announced the launch of the revitalized Historic Barn Rehabilitation Tax Credit program. The new program allows state taxpayers who rehabilitate their historic barns to earn a credit against state income tax owed.

The amount of the tax credit is equal to 25% of the expenditures incurred to rehabilitate a historic barn. To qualify, a barn must have been built prior to 1946, and the work must be approved by the Division for Historic Preservation. Taxpayers can begin to claim the credit on their 2022 New York State taxes.
