The city of Rochester’s planning commission has released a draft of a new zoning map aimed to help align land use and transportation with the city of Rochester’s 2034 plan.

The city is hosting a series of public review meetings this month where residents can voice their thoughts about the map.

Public review meetings will be held in person in four city quadrants. A fifth meeting will be held for downtown residents and for residents who are not able to attend the previous neighborhood meetings.
