A new neighborhood center on Rochester's northwest side is now up and running.
The Northwest Neighborhood Service Center is on Parkway. Residents will be able to speak with police at the center as well as city representatives.
The facility shares space with the Charles Settlement House, the Somali Center and Notre Dame Tutoring Service.
Officials say the center acts as an access point for services from City Hall.
"It's truly a neighborhood center and where folks can come in and talk about their quality of life issues. The problems they may have, but also to work with neighbors to work on projects and initiatives," said administrator Pete Saxe.
Rochester Police also turned out for some community outreach at the center Wednesday. Members of the K-9 unit and mounted patrol were on hand for local children to see up close and personal.
