Boards and commissions play an important role in community development and local government. These volunteer bodies assist the City Council in the development of Rochester and maintaining a high quality of life. Boards and commissions are vital to the successful operation of the city and ensure public involvement in the governmental process.

Members of the community are encouraged to attend public meetings of the City Council and the City’s Boards & Commissions. 

Five commissions and boards are supported by the Community Development Department:

Committee on Urban Design & Environment (CUDE)
Energy Commission
Heritage Preservation Commission
Planning & Zoning Commission
Zoning Board of Appeals
