Reshaping Rochester Series

Our annual lecture series features a blue-ribbon roster of innovative thinkers, practitioners and leaders who come to Rochester to share their ideas and experience with us.

Reshaping Rochester focuses on the efforts, strategies and successes accomplished by cities that face similar challenges to ours: downtown revitalization, preserving the character of our neighborhoods and communities, creating mixed-use centers and walkable commercial districts, and enlisting community involvement.

Here is a list of speakers for our 2015 Reshaping Rochester Series! Stay tuned for more information!
