Emily Royce is a new addition to the Genesee-Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council in 2019. Her focus is providing data and mapping support to G/FLRPC’s projects and all communities in our region. She has worked a number of years in other fields; starting as a shipping clerk at Historic House Parts in Rochester, providing technical audio visual support to students, teachers, and staff at West Irondequoit Central School District, and functioning in many capacities at D’Angelo’s Plumbing and Heating in Spencerport. Her interest in planning can be seen sprinkled throughout her life through her spatial abilities and observant nature. She has always taken a broader interest in the space, streets, houses, and communities around her, asking questions on how could things be improved or preserved. Emily went for her Master’s degree to become more involved in the planning world in Rochester. She completed her degree, with her thesis doing a case study of the South Wedge, and an internship at the Community Design Center of Rochester, assisting with the Hudson Avenue Charrette.
