The development of a Community Economic Development Plan for Rochester is underway, with a number of community sessions planned to develop key ideas and strategies to help build Rochester Tomorrow.

A community visioning workshop is planned, followed by a street drop-in session. The two-hour workshop will outline what other regional towns are doing to put themselves on the map and to share their vision. The drop-in session will provide another chance for the community to chat to staff about the project and capture comments.
