Toilet Paper and Rochester’s Center City Master Plan

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Rochester aims to update its Center City Master Plan. It was last updated in 2003.
Last night the City of Rochester held the first of two informational/public input sessions for the new Center City Master Plan external link. This meeting was primarily intended for residents of downtown, although many people who work or live outside the inner loop also gave input.

I listened for about an hour as many great ideas were put on the table… “Plant trees down the middle of Main Street to make it nicer for pedestrians.” “Make people feel safer about walking downtown.” “Stop demolishing older and historic buildings.”

Then one resident announced, “Sometimes I go to the bathroom and I need toilet paper, but the only place to find toilet paper is Wegmans or Tops which are too far to walk to.” So, simply put, downtown could use more retailers and small grocers – for life’s little necessities (i.e. T.P.). Brilliant!

I Spy a Bike Lane

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Saint Paul Street looking north from the Monroe County building. That smaller lane on the right side of the street is for bikes. Now all we need are some sharrows so it's not a big secret.
Last week fresh paint went down on Saint Paul Street – from the Monroe County Social Services building north to School #8 near Avenue A. But wait a cottonpickin’ second… why’s that lane so darn skinny? How am I supposed to squeeze my Hummer through there?

Rochester, You Have a Bike Plan. Now What?

Monday, March 7th, 2011

The first marked bike lanes and shared use lanes will begin to appear this construction season across the city. [PHOTO: Phillip Barron]
Last summer I posted a progress report on Rochester’s Bike Master Plan and I commented on the importance of such planning—even if you don’t own a bike. Well, I’m all giddy with excitement to report… Rochester has a bike plan! Officially.

Rochester’s Bike Master Plan—It’s Not Just for Cyclists

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Rochester is a great city for off-road cycling. The City's Bicycle Master Plan Project will seek to elevate Rochester to full 'Bicycle Friendly Community' status with the League of American Bicyclists' Bicycle Friendly Communities Program. [PHOTO: from Tobo's Flickr stream]
Something outstanding is happening in our community—Rochester is catching Bike Fever. Over the past decade or more Monroe County and local municipalities have been steadily making investments in existing off-road trails and in new ones, especially around our colleges, universities and along the river and lake shore. You may have noticed some new ones near you. Bicycling Magazine even placed Rochester on their list of America’s Top 50 Bike-Friendly Citiesexternal link this year. Albeit at #50, but hey, it’s a good start!
