WXXI Interviews Victor Dover for NPR's Morning Edition


While in town for the Reshaping Rochester Lecture series, Victor Dover was interviewed by Beth Adams of public radio station WXXI, for broadcast during NPR's Morning Edition. The subject: Street smarts.

Reshaping Rochester, created by Rochester's Regional Community Design Center, focuses on the efforts, strategies and successes accomplished by cities that face similar challenges to Rochester: downtown revitalization, preserving the character of neighborhoods and communities, creating mixed-use centers and walkable commercial districts, and enlisting community involvement.
