Help Preserve Historic 933 University Ave.

Preservation Board meeting on Wednesday 7 August

On August 7, the Rochester Preservation Board will vote on whether to recommend to Marcia Barry (Director of Planning & Zoning) that the proposed apartment building at 933 University Avenue "may have a significant adverse impact" on the community. This will be a key consideration in Ms. Barry's determination of whether to issue a "positive declaration" under the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). The Preservation Board's decision on its recommendation is very important. 


Despite vocal opposition from neighborhood residents, community groups, and George Eastman House, the proposed apartment complex, at 4 stories tall and with over 100 units, would overwhelm University Ave. and detract from the architectural and historic nature of the neighborhood.
