NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- On July 26 the City of New Rochelle held a Scoping Session at the City Hall for the Supplemental Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SDGEIS) for the Waterfront District which will study the impacts of developing in this area to inform the new zoning. Scoping is a process that develops a written document ("scope") outlining the topics and analyses of potential environmental impacts of an action that will be addressed in a SDGEIS.
The proposed Waterfront Overlay District (DO-7) includes 12 contiguous tax lots totaling 18.81 acres along the City’s Echo Bay shoreline on the southeast side of Main Street, northeast side of Echo Avenue, southwest side of LeFevres Lane and the northwest side of Echo Bay in southeastern New Rochelle. The Draft Scope can be viewed and downloaded here. A hard copy of the Draft Scope is available for review at the City of New Rochelle Department of Development 515 North Avenue City of New Rochelle, NY 10801 . Comments on the Draft Scope will be received until the close of business on August 10, 2018.
