Boards and Commissions

The hard work and dedication of citizens who serve on more than a dozen boards, committees or commissions contribute to the successful operation and development of our city. These bodies have a positive and direct effect on the quality of life and economic vitality of Rochester.

Board members, who serve in an advisory capacity, are responsible for the oversight and administration of specific functions. They meet monthly to perform such tasks as advising the legislative and executive branches of the City government, interpreting the City’s ordinances and zoning code, or protecting the historic and environmental integrity of our community.
