Section 120-157(E) of Rochester’s Zoning Code encourages structures and public spaces to be pedestrian-oriented and promote safe pedestrian movement, access and circulation. Additionally, if a service alley is available, garages and loading areas should only be accessed via the alley.

This ordinance increases pedestrian safety and encourages people to walk as a primary form of transportation which will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
