I must have missed something.. if the planners/government officials in Rochester are so determined to fix our city then why was nothing done about CityGate? Why is nothing being done about the 3 story office buildings being built at midtown when in this article they talk about creating a truly urban city and not a suburban office park. Frankly, the new D&C building and Windstream building look like an office park to me. And they both go against the CURRENT zoning code. What makes that okay? To me it seems that the city knows what it wants to be but doesn't know how to do it. They need to take some ideas from Buffalo because their city is seeing a major revival. Unfortunately I can't say the same about Rochester. I would never comment on this but I am an environmental design student at UB and I've grown up in Rochester. Everything the city is doing is not impressing me.
Interesting. I think I'll attend the presentation.
We live in a diverse country, some are theist, others are not. Non-denominational prayers should be offered before public meetings. This way, those who are theist, feel included in the political community. Public prayer has been a tradition practiced since the founding of the country, if the founders who penned the Bill of Rights believed this act contradicted the First Amendment, then surely they would have nipped this practice in the bud, or made a clause for an exception to public prayer.
Rather interesting thing to say Ms. Towler, given that you were one of her critics when Mayor-Elect Warren laid plans to run nine months ago.
