Jason Haremza returns to the Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council bringing a diversity of planning and land use regulatory experiences. At G/FLRPC, he will focus on water resources planning, land use regulations such as zoning, and assisting municipalities with land use, planning, and design issues that arise.
In recent years, Jason has worked as a planner for the City of Rochester (population 206,000) and the Town of Danby (population 3,600) and looks forward to bringing that practical experience to villages, town, and cities across the nine-county region. In addition, he has conducted training through Monroe County’s Land Use Decision Making series, the Community Design Center Rochester’s Placemaking 101 series, taught planning classes at SUNY Geneseo, and guest lectured at RIT and Cornell University.
A native of rural Upstate New York (Town of Sardinia), Jason lives in the Monroe Village neighborhood of Rochester. As a self-described geek when it comes to New York State history, geography, and local government, one of Jason’s goals is to visit all 62 county seats in the state. When you see him, ask how many he has left!
