Efforts in Rochester counter surge in heroin use

Residents of neighborhoods along Rochester’s North Clinton Avenue — as well as city officials and the police department — have taken a stand against a surge of heroin use in the area. Several empty lots along North Clinton have been the target of extensive clean-up efforts to increase the visibility of users and create a safer environment for residents. The effort is being supported by Project HOPE, a neighborhood revitalization project created by Ibero-American Development Corp. with funding from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation.
