Marketview Heights Urban Renewal District Plan (URD)

About the Project

The Marketview Heights Urban Renewal District Plan (URD) is a neighborhood-driven project that identifies revitalization opportunities in a targeted area between East Main Street and the Rochester Public Market.  The Plan outlines strategies for housing rehabilitation, re-use of vacant properties, new residential development, public space enhancements, and improving public safety.

The URD overlaps with the North East Quadrant’s Focused Investment Strategy (FIS) area and complements the housing and neighborhood improvements targeted through that program.
