Town of Gates

Welcome to the Town of Gates!


Gates is a dynamic town in Monroe County with an interesting past and a bright future. Our community has been at the center of history for this area and the roots of Rochester can be directly traced to our town.

Farming has ended in town since our sesquicentennial but the current mix of industrial, commercial and residential properties is the proper balance to hold taxes stable while keeping a hometown feel. Housing is Gates is among the most affordable in the country. Residents enjoy high quality services from our Police Department, Recreation Department, Highway Departments, Senior Center, as well our professionally run departments at Gates Town Hall.

From Walmart to Tinseltown, and from Rochester Tech Park to Lions Park, our town is a great place to live, work and raise a family… just ask rock legend Lou Gramm of foreigner who was raised in Gates, or Manager of the World Series Champion Baltimore Orioles, Joe Altobelli who raised his family in this town.
