Richards: MCC Campus Should Stay in Sibley Building

Dec 5, 2012

Rochester's mayor is throwing his support behind a bonding resolution that would allow Monroe Community College to move forward with its plans for a downtown campus.

Richards recently sent a letter to County Executive Maggie Brooks expressing his support of the resolution.  However, he says that does not mean he has changed his mind about where it should be located.  MCC officials plan to move the city campus from its current location in the Sibley Building to empty Kodak buildings on State Street.  Richards says he continues to oppose that move, indicating he would prefer students still come to the heart of downtown.

The Monroe County Legislature is expected to vote Tuesday on the $28 million bond.

Twenty votes are needed for approval.
