– City Council will vote on a major rezoning of the Port of Rochester this month. Legislation calls for a Marina District. It sets out a plan for development, complete with design standards for buildings and public squares.
The city plans to build a marina and sell public land for development of housing and retail. Meantime, SUNY Brockport may build a Lake Ontario Research Center near or inside the Terminal building. There will be promenades and trail links.
The zoning plan is the next step in the massive transformation of the port. It’s going to dramatically alter the waterfront.
