Suggestions sought for Midtown site names

Rochester Business Journal
March 14, 2014

The city of Rochester is taking suggestions from the public on names for a new street and plaza at the Midtown redevelopment site.

The street is to run from East Main Street opposite the Liberty Pole and extend south to Elm Street. The new half-acre plaza lies next to the building occupied by Windstream Corp. and is between South Clinton Avenue and the new street.

“Rochesterians are imaginative and creative,” Mayor Lovely Warren said in a statement Thursday. “We are proud to celebrate the history and heritage of our great city and we are looking to the knowledge and creativity of our citizens in asking for suggested names for the new street and public open space.”

Suggestions will be accepted until March 31, officials said. Names should be specific to the street and plaza and relate to Rochester or its history, they said. They cannot be of a living person or of someone who died in 2013.

Submissions must include a written explanation of no more than 400 words detailing why the suggested name is important and the sources of information provided, officials said.

Suggestions will be reviewed by a committee of city staff. The committee will forward selected suggestions to the city planning commission and City Council, which will make the final decision, officials said.

Suggestions can be mailed to Midtown Naming Suggestions, Attn. Jason Haremza, City Hall Room 125B, 30 Church Street, Rochester, NY, 14614. They can be emailed to namemidtown@cityofrochester.gov.
