Opportunity for input on City’s Comprehensive Plan
Consultants working on the City of Rochester’s Comprehensive Plan update have invited the YUPs to participate in a “Meeting in a Box” in order to solicit our feedback on the Comprehensive Plan. Meeting in a Box is designed for community groups, neighborhood associations, or friends to gather at a convenient time and location to share their opinions about the future of the City of Rochester. The Meeting in a Box “kit” contains everything
needed to hold your own discussion including instruction sheets for the host/ facilitator, discussion questions, worksheets for participant responses, and directions for
recording and returning responses. The meeting should take just about an hour.
Please email Caitlin if you plan to come.
Thursday, November 3rd | 6:00-7:00 PM | Landmark Society offices, 133 S Fitzhugh St.
