“Downtown Rochester continues to do an excellent job of comprehensive, ongoing, community involved downtown management using the National Main Street Philosophy”, commented Bob Donohue, Main Street Oakland County Program Coordinator. “They are recognized as County, State and National Leaders. It was obvious throughout the recent annual evaluation by MSOC that Downtown Rochester is blessed with outstanding leadership at the City, DDA Board and the DDA Staff. They are definitely not resting on their laurels. There is a feeling of excitement with new individuals stepping forward and a commitment to meet all challenges ahead to keep downtown the outstanding community and regional asset that it is.”

“We are very proud of our association with National Main Street, and honored to be recognized for the 11th year in a row for their accreditation against very high standards”, stated DDA Chairman Mark Albrecht. “On behalf of Kristi Trevarrow and her team, the many volunteers that contribute their time and talents to the city and the DDA Board, we are all dedicated to ensuring the mission of the DDA and the principles of the National Main Street are not just met but exceeded. The 11 years of recognition speak volumes to what we’ve accomplished together in Rochester, a great place to live, eat, shop, dance and enjoy.”
