The Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative at United Way will hold a town hall meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26, at the Adams Street Recreation Center, 85 Adams Street. 

The initiative aims to reduce poverty in the Rochester-Monroe County region by 50 percent over the next 15 years.

The initiative will update the community on its progress at Tuesday's meeting and hear about implementation plans for pilot neighborhoods. RAMPI has chosen the EMMA, Beechwood, and Marketview Heights neighborhoods to begin testing some of its plans before applying them to the broader region. BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

The State Department of Environmental Conservation will hold workshops today on revisions to its regulations for solid waste facilities such as landfills and recycling centers. The first event if from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and the second from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.; both will be held at the Seneca Ballroom of the RIT Inn and Conference Center, 5257 West Henrietta Road, Henrietta.

The revisions include new regulations on compost facilities meant to better control odors and reduce fire potential; tweaks that will allow for better enforcement of regulations against unsanctioned construction and demolition debris dumping; stricter requirements on municipal waste incinerators; new post-closure requirements for landfills; and requirements for landfill operators to capture and destroy methane and other gases generated by the decomposing garbage.

Other changes address local waste planning responsibilities.

The workshops are being held in advance of a public hearing at 1 p.m. on June 7. The hearing will also be held at the RIT Inn and Conference Center. BY JEREMY MOULE
