Urban Action 8/7 

This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)

RCSD grants meeting

The Rochester school board will hold a meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 7, to discuss and possibly vote on whether to accept a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for more than $1 million. Some board members oppose the grant and others similar to it because they say accepting such grants would open the schools' doors to the private sector. The meeting will be held at the district's central office, 131 West Broad Street.

Water quality info

The Brighton Farmers Market will host Water Quality Education Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 11. It includes a presentation by ColorBrightonGreen.org, "Watersheds and Rain Barrels: What, Why, and How?" Presenters will explain why a rain barrel for home gardening use is beneficial to local lakes and streams. And residents who live in Brighton in the Buckland Creek watershed may be eligible for a free rain barrel. The event will be held at the Brighton Farmers Market, Temple B'rith Kodesh parking lot, 2131 Elmwood Avenue.

Code compliance talk

The New York State Coalition of Property Owners and Businesses will present a discussion with Gary Kirkmire, the City of Rochester's director of inspection and compliance, at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 8. Kirkmire will talk about the city's inspection regulations for rental properties. The meeting will be held at the Monroe Voiture, 933 University Avenue.
