City Urges Residents to Delay Neighborhood  Beautification Efforts Until NYS on PAUSE is Rescinded

The City of Rochester is urging all residents, neighborhood groups and community organizations to continue social distancing and delay neighborhood clean-up efforts until stay-at-home restrictions are lifted and the greater Rochester area has been declared safe to reopen.

 “While I love this city dearly, and I love to see it looking its absolute best, there will be plenty of time to beautify our community when it is safe to do so,” said Norman Jones, Commissioner of the City’s Department of Environmental Services.“Right now, the most important thing is to protect yourself, protect your circle and protect those in our community who are most vulnerable to the ravaging effects of COVID-19.
