Rochester seeking applicants for nuisance advisory board

The City of Rochester is seeking volunteers to fill open seats on the Nuisance Advisory Board (NAB), which helps support residential and commercial vitality in city neighborhoods.

The nine-member board meets monthly to review alleged violations of the law and City code to determine if they meet the standard of a chronic nuisance activity – such as litter or noise – as described in the City Charter and the Nuisance Abatement Program. In doing so, the NAB brings citizen insight help abate the inherent conflicts that arise when commercial businesses, rental property and owner-occupied homes exist in close proximity. Subjects of nuisance complaints can be assigned “nuisance points,” which can accumulate to a level resulting in the closure of a business or property.

The board consists of one business owner and resident from each city quadrant and one resident from Downtown. NAB applications with more detailed submission requirements can be found at

Applications and accompanying documentation must be submitted by 5 p.m., November 8, 2021 to: Daisy Rivera Algarin, NSC Director, City Hall Room 011A, 30 Church St., Rochester, NY 14614 or by email to
