Rochester Board Looks to Clear Up Zoning Language

Members of Rochester’s zoning appeals board are meeting to create better definitions of residential buildings in the village’s zoning rules. Chairman John Romang says clearing up the language will helpĀ  address the concerns of area residents.

“I think there’s always that in the backbround, people like Rochester the way it is. They want to maintain it the way it is, and that’s why the bought properties in Rochester and that’s why they moved their families to Rochester.”

The board wants to clear up the differences between townhouses and condos, as well as what kind of multifamily complexes can be built in areas with specific types of zoning. The board tabled the issue in order to get more input from residents, developers and the village board.
