“As part of the Main Street Oakland County program, Rochester has earned national accreditation again this year. Rochester has exemplified itself as a model downtown development and management program that is working effectively bringing together broad based community support and public and partnerships to its benefit, commented John Bry, Main Street Oakland County Program Coordinator. “Downtown Rochester’s success, led through a combination of the talented leadership and staff of the Downtown Development Authority and Principal Shopping District, and has resulted in outcomes and investment which have transformed the downtown and Rochester into an award-winning destination.”

We are honored to receive our 12th successive Accreditation as a Main Street Community as we join an elite group of communities with this distinction,” stated DDA Chairman Mark Albrecht. “This award is due to the leadership of Kristi Trevarrow and her team, along with the support and collaboration of Mayor Daldin and the members of City Council, the City Staff, our partners in the PSD, and all the volunteers that make our vision for downtown Rochester a reality. Next year we go for the Baker’s dozen.”
