I want to share something with you that I just received minutes ago from a colleague.
It reworks the RFP for the Armory and I will quote the exact language... "The City of New Rochelle invites qualified development teams, cultural and civic associations, colleges and universities, non-profit and for profit entities to submit proposals for the adaptive reuse of the former Armory located at 260-70 E. Main Street, New Rochelle, N.Y."
The contact person is Suzanne Reider, Senior Project Manager, Department of Development.
I will not repeat my oft-delivered point that the best resource would be a committee of local and experienced citizens headed up by Ron Tocci, former State Assemblyman. I am urging Tocci take his proposal throughout the City, to every Synagogue, Church, Association, etc. to indicate that his team has a multi-usage scheme that would both form a lead into Echo Bay and our sorely needed commercial development to ease the tax burden.
I can recall many recent cants by the Administration citing resistance to this neglected propery, then its need to develop revenue for it to be considered at all.
