|College Town Groundbreaking Ushers in Parking Shuffle|
|Monday, April 29 2013|
On Thursday, May 2, Mt. Hope area residents, government leaders, project
developers, and University community members and officials will gather to
celebrate the groundbreaking of College Town.
The mixed-use development, which includes retail and dining, hotel and conference facilities, and housing, is designed to: create an urban village for residents, students, employees, and visitors; provide an economic benefit to the region; and enhance University connections to nearby neighbors. The ceromony will take place at 1 p.m. at the corner of Elmwood and Mt. Hope avenues, with an on-site reception to follow.
Related to the start of construction in the College Town footprint, URMC's Parking Office will be mailing or e-mailing relocation instructions to employees with permits in Lots 4, 10 and Towne House.
If you park in one of these lots, we appreciate your patience and flexibility. In the days ahead, we urge you to keep your eyes tuned to your e-mail inbox or home mailbox from more detailed information on the precise timing of your move.
As health care reform challenges us to expand health insurance to cover 30 million more Americans – and improve the quality and effectiveness of that care, all on a smaller dime – traditional industry arrangements will only go so far. We sat down with URMC Chief Operating Officer Peter Robinson to make sense of how reform’s new financial incentives are rewriting relationships among players.
