The City of Rochester Department of Environmental Services and Department of Recreation and Youth Services, in conjunction with Genesee Waterways Center Inc., will hold a public meeting Wednesday, May 6, from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Genesee Waterways Center, in order to gain feedback regarding the city’s Genesee Valley Park West Master Plan, city officials stated.
The organizations have developed a master plan for the portion of Genesee Valley Park west of the Genesee River, and will be holding the informational meeting in order to explain the project, answer questions from the public, and record feedback, according to officials.
The plan will include a report, recommendations, and cost estimates for the enhancement of the historic park’s physical infrastructure over the next 20 to 30 years.
In addition, the Brooks Landing Phase II Public Improvements project will construct, in summer 2015, physical improvements to the park roadway, trails and landscape north of Elmwood Ave., officials stated.
The public will see the latest version of the plan before it’s submitted to the state for approval in June.
There will be no fee to attend the meeting, which will be held in an open-house format.
