Standing up for our most vulnerable citizens, and ensuring that New Rochelle continues to be a diverse and inclusive community.
New Rochelle is a welcoming and diverse community. We need high quality affordable housing at multiple price points in order to attract a young, educated workforce and help seniors age in place and close to their support network. The spur of downtown development goes hand-in-hand with increasing the supply of affordable housing, which is essential to the economic vitality of our City. We must also ensure affordable housing units are offered through a fair and transparent process.
