Dear Resident of District 5:
While New Rochelle’s future looks bright, we must strike a balance between preserving our residential neighborhoods and responsible development in our downtown. The challenge of providing the essential city services and assuring the preservation of our quality of life must be met with thoughtful planning and response to community needs. Neighborhood traffic, preventing neighborhood overdevelopment, easing traffic congestion on North Avenue, providing adequate recreational opportunities for our youth, and continuing to make available the essential municipal services are all issues that require focus and commitment. I have tried to highlight some of those issues.
If you have any comments, questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] or 914-740-4346.
Barry R. Fertel
New Rochelle City Council District 5
