This is a long term opportunity!

The Lower Falls Foundation, LLC, is a social impact enterprise and a neighborhood catalyst committed to developing relationships and opportunities to benefit the historic Lower Falls neighborhoods in Rochester, NY. Its mission is to be the most flexible and autonomous vehicle for channeling investment, business opportunities, beautification projects, heritage tourism, advocacy and civic engagement opportunities into the historic Lower Falls neighborhoods.

This project will identify the commercial, religious, educational, and residential structures with the highest architectural and historical significance in the 14621 neighborhood, which is an area of rich ethnic and racial mixtures that reflects the diversity of our national origins. After the identification process, the project team will then apply for city landmark or district designations and listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Many of the structures may need renovation efforts to be undertaken. However, since the 14621 area is a City Preservation District, funding will likely be available for restorations and/or exterior alterations. The project team will also be used to work with property owners to assist them in identifying needs and applying for this funding.

The purpose of this project can be summarized by a 1984 Landmark Society of WNY document, “Architectural and Historical Survey of Buildings in the 14621 Neighborhood, Rochester, NY”: “To conserve the buildings and neighborhoods that give our communities their unique flavor and beauty…to adapt them to the needs of the present…so that they may lend dignity, continuity, and variety to the future.”

Team members will gain valuable experience in being involved in all aspects of this project, including collection of data about each potential candidate for landmark status, helping to construct the applications, and the prioritization of these buildings in terms of the efforts need to be successful in achieving placement in the National Register of Historic Places.

One goal will be for the team to organize and conduct a tour of 14621 National Register sites, which would be open to the public, during the summer of 2017.
