The City of Rochester’s FY20 budget was proposed just after the release of “Rochester 2034,” the City’s Draft Comprehensive Plan for the next 15 years. The 2019-20 budget is a down payment on our long-term investments in that plan. It should reflect the fact that the future belongs to Rochester’s children and youth; their healthy development is the foundation needed for the success and growth of our city.
The Children’s Agenda urges the City to target resources toward 3 critical investments:
– Invest in children and the adults who care for or teach them;
– Invest in structural and regional strategies to create a future free from racial inequities;
– Invest in community collaborations that create a “village” where young people can grow and thrive.
