The City of Rochester Community Development Department is inviting the community to Neighborhood Week, which is a four-day family-friendly event.
The event runs from August 17th through August 21.
Rochester Currently Updating The City's Zoning Ordinance
According to a news release, the City is currently updating the City's zoning ordinance and seeking public comment on changes to development rules and standards that will impact all Rochester residents.
Neighborhood Week will offer the public the opportunity to share feedback on these changes as well as enjoy an outdoor experience at a park in each quadrant of the City.
● August 17, 6pm-8pm, Cascade Lake Park
● August 18, 6pm-8pm, McQuillan Fields
● August 19, 6pm-8pm, East Silver Lake Park

Each event will host a local food truck and the RNeighbors Building Blocks Neighborhood trailer with various board and yard games. The City also said that open lawn space or a playground area will be available for those who wish to picnic or play
Community members will also have the opportunity to learn more about the Unified Development Code (UDC) project through a visual poster display and provide interactive feedback on the topics that impact them. The Community Development team will be on hand at each event to answer any questions.
The first 50 attendees will receive a complimentary food truck ticket at the end of the poster display. A maximum of two tickets will be handed out per group.
