Working closely with constituents, local business owners, city staff and developers to achieve a fair and successful downtown renaissance. Protecting existing residential neighborhoods, adding affordable housing, creating new central parking facilities and green space, and improving infrastructure.
I support increasing affordable local housing by lowering the AMI to 40% to provide real affordability in new development projects. Priority should be given to existing New Rochelle residents especially those displaced by new development. I support affordable units being provided within all new development projects, not only in specific "affordable" buildings.
