Rochester City Council Considering Plans For Opioid Epidemic & Homelessness For Monroe & Lyell Avenue

Written by on May 21, 2024

The Rochester City Council could consider plans at its Tuesday meeting for neighborhood ambassador programs in the Monroe and Lyell Avenue areas to fight opioid epidemic & homelessness. MC Collaborative would cover the rollout of the one-year pilot program on Monroe Avenue, and Cameron Community would implement it on Lyell Avenue. Both organizations would get $125,000 each from settlement money through the New York State Opioid Settlement Fund. In addition to addressing the opioid epidemic, the funds would be used for other services. The city unanimously approved pilot neighborhood ambassador programs on North Clinton and Jefferson avenues in November 2023. Tuesday’s city council meeting starts at 6 p.m. All are streamed online on the city’s YouTube page.
