Quick note: I appeared today on Connections with Evan Dawson on WXXI radio. The topic: parking meters, and the City of Rochester’s plan to enforce paid parking. While the City reversed their decision yesterday, the guests – Heidi Zimmer-Meyer, president of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation; Arian Horbovetz, creator of the Urban Phoenix blog; Jason Partyka, member of Reconnect Rochester; Bleu Cease, executive director of the Rochester Contemporary Art Center; and little old me – had a great conversation about exploring downtown, and ways to attract people and create a more vibrant experience for visitors. You can listen to the podcast of the hour here, on the WXXI website.
