The town of Irondequoit [†] is located in western New York within the Greater Rochester Metropolitan Area. The Rochester region is known for its rich history of innovation and its highly skilled work force. The local economy, once dominated by Eastman Kodak and other large manufacturing companies, is now more diverse. Today, leading employers include the University of Rochester Medical Center and Wegmans.

Irondequoit's convenient location within the region, and its potential to offer a high quality of life in attractive, affordable neighborhoods, provide an opportunity for the town to evolve into a preferred place to live and work in the region.

Irondequoit borders three bodies of water (the Genesee River on the west, Lake Ontario to the north, and Irondequoit Bay to the east), and, in fact, its name is derived from an Iroquois term meaning "where the land and waters meet."

The town was incorporated in 1839, and grew slowly through the nineteenth century. After World War II, a two‐decade population boom transformed Irondequoit into a bedroom suburb offering a wide range of housing that appealed to entry‐level workers as well as corporate executives. The town developed into a dynamic and convenient community that met residents' civic, cultural, and recreational needs.
