Rochester residents invited to provide input on the state of the city

Rochester residents invited to provide input on the state of the city

Rochester leaders are looking for citizen input on the strategic direction of the city.

A series of community focus group sessions are scheduled over three days from June 19-21. 

According to a city announcement, residents attending one of the focus groups will have the opportunity to share opinions on the current state of the city, city services, and potential areas of improvement, as well as their perception of the community.

The information collected from the group sessions will be used along with a recent phone survey to help determine community priorities as the city moves forward in its strategic planning process.

Those interested in participating are encouraged to attend the focus group for their city council ward.
