Parcel 5 wasn't on the City Council's agenda on Tuesday, but it was on the minds of city neighbors at the meeting.
"Parcel 5 could be a public social center, the focal point of our city where we celebrate art and music, and food and hold festivals," said Mary Lupien, who supports Visionary Square.
A dozen speakers on Tuesday shared their opinions on the three options under consideration. One option, Visionary Square, would create green space for outdoor events and include food trucks and outdoor cafes.
A performing arts center has also been proposed for the site and lastly the Gallina proposal, to create a mix of housing, shops and restaurants as well as a large green space for events.
Edward Campany, MCC student: "The Gallina development accomplishes every one of Visionary Square's goals without becoming dependent on outside visitors. It is practical, economic and socially just comprise our city's needs."
We asked Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren where the city stands on the proposals.
