New police station and Neighborhood Service Center proposed for former Piehler Pontiac site

UPDATE: The Informational Meeting has been rescheduled. The new date is Monday, August 13. Same time, same place. Hope to see many of you there!

The City of Rochester has just announced plans to build a new combined Lake Section RPD Station and Northwest Neighborhood Service Center on the northeast corner of Lake Avenue and Ridge Road West (the old Piehler Pontiac site across from Eastman Business Park).

The City will be holding a public informational meeting on August 7 at the Edgerton Recreation Center. The attached pdf is a copy of a letter that has been mailed out to all residents and property owners in the project area.

According to the letter, this proposed new police station is part of the ongoing RPD Reorganization that aims to “return  officers to  neighborhood patrol beats to effectively engage in true community policing.”

The Lake Section police station and NW Neighborhood Service Center are currently located at 1099 Jay Street. The Lake Section patrol area covers the west side of the city from Charlotte in the north all the way to I-490, south of Lyell Ave. So this location for the offices would place them in a location more central to the whole area.

If you want to learn more about this proposal, or have input you want to share with the City, please consider attending.
