Rochester 2034 posterAbout the Comprehensive Plan 

Rochester 2034 will serve as the fundamental basis for making public and private decisions on land use regulation and development, future investment, and the allocation of critical resources.  Typically looking out at the next 15 years, a city comprehensive plan is a means to promote and protect the general health, safety and welfare of the people and to lay out a course of action for the future social, physical, and economic development of the community. 

The previous comprehensive plan, called "Renaissance 2010 Plan", was adopted by City Council in 1999 (Read the Renaissance 2010 Plan Here)Rochester 2034 will take a fresh look at our community's current opportunities and challenges, identifying a new vision for the Flower City as we arrive at our 200th birthday in 2034.
