They say it won't raise taxes, but it won't stop them from increasing the assessments, thus raising the taxes, also this would be the first step, they indicate a pool, and another add on later. It also is not clear what the cost of running this rec center.

This is not a step in "that" direction, this is a building. It will take money from fields, and open spaces!

Having lived grown up in Perinton, I've seen what a great thing their community center did for the community. Most notably for the seniors and the small children. Now living in the Victor area with a small child, I would love the same opportunity. It would benefit our family and our neighbors, many who also have small children. It would be nice to go somewhere other than the mall to get some exercise.

Though I wonder if they will impose the "Victor Resident" rule on the community center as they do on Boughton Park....

Farmington residents pay into Victor School taxes and make up a large percentage of Victor spending, but we can't use the dippy park because we don't "live in Victor".

It's OK to take our money for taxes, but not OK for us to use your high-falutin' park?

It would be silly to exclude Farmington when so many families have been moving there!

Funny how anything going on the the City of Rochester, there is hundreds of comments from people that don't even live in the City, many from people that may even live in the Town of Victor,
Yet a 7 million dollar building in Victor up in the air and their is only 6 comments on here.

I wish everyone would keep their nose out of the City of Rochester's business as they do in Victor's business.
