RocLinks 3/12/16

From local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…

Woof

The city is considering loosening regulationsexternal link in select areas to permit for off-leash dog parks in town. While Rochester seems a little late to the party in this regard, it will be a welcome change all the same. I don’t even have a dog, and I’d love one somewhere in Corn Hill. I would like to see the parks be somewhere that parking isn’t a consideration, though, as dog parks are for a neighborhood, like a playground, and not something to drive to.

Entrepreneurial Spirit

In a recent ranking,external link Rochester made 10th in the nation for female entrepreneurs. Considering other great cities like San Antonio and Oklahoma City are in the list, this is an excellent spot to be.

Nomnomnom

We’re crazy late to this link, but we felt you couldn’t live without it. Here are a variety of alternativesexternal link in Rochester to getting E. Coli from Chipotle. Eat up!

Long Range and You

There’s still a week to submit your commentsexternal link on the Genesee Regional Transportation Council’s (GTC) Long Range Plan for Rochester. The plan will guide transportation investment for the next 30 years, so it’s a reasonably big deal to get it right, and GTC definitely wants to hear from you.

WEEEEEEeeeeeee…..

And finally, just a friendly reminder to be safe out there (and consider alternate forms of transportation). For example, take it easy on 390, unlike this person.external link

  1. Brian says:

    Dog parks are a great idea, except that people in Rochester have a habit of not cleaning up after their dogs. Maybe there should be an article on that, and maybe a little shaming along the way. Not only is it gross, but it’s unhealthy for people and pets and it pollutes our waterways that have taken years to clean back up. Let’s have some pride in our city and clean up after our pets.

  2. While I’m sympathetic to the argument of cleaning up after ones dog (it’s the right thing to do!), I don’t think that not doing it is any way unique, or even particularly unique to Rochester.

    Since you mention it, though, I feel as though this is a great spot to bring up something I observed in New York City (and elsewhere). It seems to me that there is ah, a perception, that things in nicer neighborhoods are nicer because of the people who live there. This isn’t generally the case, though. In fact, what seems to differentiate nicer neighborhoods is that there is the local money and provision of city services such that the neighborhood appears nicer. It’s not that more people on the upper east side pick up after their dogs than in morningside heights, rather, the pile of money that provides for doormen and porters and the like allows for someone else to be doing it without anyone having to think about it. Similarly, you’ll notice street sweepers running less frequently through dirtier neighborhoods. Which way does the cause and effect run?

    Anyhow, sorry for the side rant, it has nothing in the slightest to do with you or dog parks really, this just seemed like the perfect spot to make it.

  3. I’m glad to see that Rochester made the list for female entrepreneurs! I think we’re on the cusp of huge entrepreneurial growth here in Rochester because of what Carlson Cowork is doing for affordable office space (and collaboration) as well as organizations like RocGrowth celebrating local startups and sharing their stories.
