Rochester Business Journal
May 20, 2014

The 9th Annual Reshaping Rochester lecture series will present speaker Thomas Herrera-Mishler, president and CEO of Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservatory 7 to 9 p.m. today.

Herrera-Mishler will discuss green infrastructure and citizen outreach at the First Universalist Church of Rochester at 150 Clinton Ave.

The speech is the final event of the series that focuses on the efforts of creating a successful city. The group says aspects of a successful city include downtown revitalization, preserving the character of neighborhoods and communities, creating mixed-use centers and walkable commercial districts, and enlisting community involvement.

Herrera-Mishler has a master’s degree in landscape architecture and regional planning with a concentration in urban design from the University of Michigan. He moved to Buffalo in 2008, after serving as the executive director of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.

Tickets are $15. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit rrcdc.org.
