WHITE PLAINS, NY -- Judge Susan Cacase, in a ruling issued yesterday, firmly rejected an Article 78 petition filed last February by Iona College against the City of New Rochelle in New York State Supreme Court.
Iona College filed the lawsuit after the New Rochelle City Council amended a local ordinance to require private schools to obtain a Special Permit to merge tax lots. The permit would likely put certain conditions on what the college could do with the merged property.
Ordinance 91, approved by the New Rochelle City Council in 2001, was amended in November 2016.New RochelleEducationMunicipal

Before getting into that, by way of a backgrounder on the City Code as it pertains to outdoor cafes/dining, we want to share a recent communication from City Hall.New RochelleMunicipal
