Rochester residents have made their feelings known and the City Council joined with them on Tuesday night, voting against signing an agreement to be part of the Granite State Futures project. The council voted 8-4 not to sign on to that comprehensive planning project funded through U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. That agreement would have seen the city working with other communities on statewide plans regarding energy, transportation, land use, economic development, and historic and cultural resources. Residents were weary that the agreement would have eroded some of their property rights, while the city could have been stripped of any input into plans for the city. Also last night, the council voted in favor of appropriating $558,000 for the repairs of the Rochester Hill Road water tank, and $946,100 for infrastructure improvements for a water and sewer extension at the Market Basket Plaza.
