Developer Guidance Handbook

The Developer Guidance Handbook was prepared to facilitate an understanding of the City’s construction-related development and rehabilitation processes; a tool to encourage and assist prospective developers through the City’s permitting and code requirements. This handbook is intended to be informative and provide general direction in the development process. Information on actual city codes can be found at www.cityofrochester.gov/citycode.

The handbook is a “living” document that will be edited to remain current.
