Why Read the New Rochelle Master Plan of 1966? Well, heck, the same reason you would read the 1996 Comprehensive Plan!
The City recently put up an EnvisioNR web site which looks pretty cool, actually. Go check that out. But today I am going Old School.
I spent part of my afternoon today in the Development office reading through old traffic studies and looking through the 1966 Master Plan, or at least parts of it. That's not a typo. Lynn Brooks-Avni, Senior Planner was kind enough to dig through their files and provide various traffic studies related to the Weyman Avenue Large Scale Retail area. She also found an original version of the Master Plan from 1966. Unfortunately, all they could find was Part 2. So, if you have Part 1 laying around somewhere please let me know.
I took digital photos the every page of New Rochelle Master Plan of 1966 Part 2 and then cropped them and put them into PDF format. Maybe someday there will be a bette version but at least now there is a decent electronic version available. If Part I turns out I will do the same thing with that (I am thinking either Barbara Davis or Len Paduano or someone like that will come through).
