ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren announced a schedule of summer events happening this summer at “The 5.”
Earlier this year, Parcel 5, the prized downtown lot on Main Street, was transformed into a temporary community entertainment space called “Meet me @ the 5.”
For years, the City of Rochester has been trying to develop the Main Street site, with previous proposals for a performing arts center, plans for a community space, and more projects that ultimately fell through.
Officials say the new plans for Parcel 5 will feature a “tremendous amount of lawn space” with site work, plantings, and other items to facilitate COVID-safe concerts, art shows and smaller festivals, adding that it will be a “very inviting, and attractive place for everyone to enjoy their summer in Rochester.”
This is a developing story. News 8 WROC will provide updates as they become available.
