"so it's easier for people to get to and from the airport and we can also use some of that land in bringing people into rochester. you can't be a real big city without having a transit connection to your airport" the next meetings on this master plan and updates will be in may of this year. reporting in rochester brooke mckivergan kimt news 3. and speaking of getting to and from the airport... tonight
