This petition had 17 supporters

Founded in January 2016, The Lower Falls Foundation is a social purpose enterprise in Rochester New York dedicated to revitalizing the Lower Falls Gorge.

“There’s no end to the great places to visit in and around the 55th District. So much of Rochester’s history is tied to High Falls and the Genesee River. Sometimes we tend to overlook the Middle and Lower Falls area, which has a rich history of its own. In this Tourism Thursday profile, learn how the Lower Falls Foundation is working to change that.”
– Rich Funke, New York State Senator for the 55th Senate District
