The City of Rochester will hold a public hearing to present designs for the open space and public realm portion of the Midtown Redevelopment Project. The designs include plans for new streets, sidewalks, and open spaces.
Some people have also talked about using a portion of the property for a permanent downtown festival site. The hearing is at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 1, at the Central Library, Kate Gleason Auditorium, 115 South Avenue.
Congressional candidates Louise Slaughter and Maggie Brooks will throw down for the second time in a Tuesday night debate sponsored by WROC TV 8. Both candidates will likely re-state the arguments they’ve been making throughout the campaign.
Incumbent Democrat Slaughter has been hitting Brooks hard on county scandals while touting her own accomplishments as a longtime Congress member. Brooks says Slaughter is part of a broken federal government and doesn’t have Monroe County’s best interests at heart anymore.
Slaughter currently holds between a five- and 10-point lead in the race, depending on which poll you trust. The debate is at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30, on Channel 8. Christine Carrie Fien
