Lovely Warren takes staff on bus tour of city
It was a campaign promise Lovely Warren made and fulfilled today.
A bus tour of neighborhoods for her senior management team included a dozen stops, ranging from the David Gantt community, to the House of Mercy, and also big ticket development projects such as CollegeTown and Brooks Landing.
The snow made for a much slower bus ride than most expected.
The bus was full of staffers near Midtown Plaza and the Sibley Building.
At each stop, the team received presentations from key participants in the development project, neighborhood, or community center they were visiting.
I think it was a good experience, said Interim Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli. Some of the projects I was aware of sometimes we all have a tendency to get immersed in our own department and what were doing, and so it was good to get everybody stuck on the bus together.
Members of the management team said they have more orientation and team-building events scheduled for tomorrow.
They dont think any of those involve a bus.
Throughout the bus ride, we kept switching seats so everybody had the opportunity to talk to one another and thats really important in starting the foundation of a strong team, said Marison Ramos-Lopez, Commissioner of the Department of Recreation and Youth Services.
In a statement, Mayor Warren said she wants her staff to maintain a focus on the citys neighborhoods where their customers live, work, and play each day.
