Iona College Applauds Community Planning Progress

May 23, 2012 - 21:35

NEW ROCHELLE (May 23, 2012) -- On Monday, May 14, the Joint Planning Committee (JPC) of the City of New Rochelle and Iona College unanimously agreed to reaffirm the February 26 Interim Report on the Planning Process for Iona to develop additional student housing and extend the process for six months allowing time for North Avenue proposals to be thoroughly reviewed and analyzed for potential development. The added time is contingent upon the City Council’s ratification of a five-year extension of the Sunset Provision, established in 2011.
The JPC has worked diligently to review housing options that would be spread across neighborhoods, reduce high-density areas, support the City’s development needs and support Iona’s long-term residency requirements.
“Iona applauds this productive process and the exceptional support of Mayor Noam Bramson, the City Council, city officials and the neighborhood representatives whose work on the committee is a true effort in collaboration,” said Iona President Dr. Joseph E. Nyre. “All members acted in good faith and Iona looks forward to continued, positive relationships with the city and all of its New Rochelle neighbors.”
