Grant Would Mean More Parking Spaces Along Rochester's Main Street
by News

Two of the biggest gripes about visiting downtown Rochester are buses clogging up Main Street and not enough parking there.

Senator Charles Schumer is paving the way to secure a $1.6 million federal Department of Transportation grant to put 50 new parking spaces along East Main Street, improve sidewalks and make downtown more of a destination.

"It'll make Main Street a beautiful, beautiful street. The kind people will want to come to to live, to shop, to work," said Sen. Schumer, D-New York.

The bus problem is on its way to being solved. A new bus terminal opening in the fall will get buses off of Main Street.

The money the city has applied for comes from a $50 million pool to be split among New York communities. Schumer said when considering the criteria, Rochester should be at the top of the list.
