Connections: Discussing the future of Parcel 5

Apr 21, 2021

After years of public debate and false starts, Rochester’s Parcel 5 has a future, or, at least some new grass seed. The one-acre plot in the heart of downtown has long been a coveted space, and for now, it will become a green gathering place. We talk about what that means for Rochester.

Our guests:

  • Rachel DeGuzman, founder and executive director of 21st Century Arts, Inc.
  • Mary Lupien, member of Rochester City Council
  • André Primus, planner with Highland Planning LLC
  • Ben Woelk, principal at Slow Road Consulting
