As you know, the Chamber of Commerce, businesses, residents, City Staff and the Council have been dedicated to making the New Rochelle Gateway from the I-95 Exit 15 along Main Street to Pintard Avenue a better place to work, while creating an aesthetically pleasing commercial corridor. In January 2007, the City Council received the West Main Street and Union Avenue schematic streetscape design. Several actions were suggested to enhance these gateways. The staff is evaluating and prioritizing specifics and will present their recommendations to the City Council later this year. In addition to this, the City Council approved the refurbishing of the Civil War monument located on the West Main Street Gateway. I was successful in reaching out to Senator Jeff Klein to begin to target additional areas in the West Main Street area for possible future funding.
