Traffic concerns are a perennial issue that draws attention from throughout New Rochelle. From Paine and Forest Heights to the East End, to Larchmont Woods, and other neighborhoods throughout District 5, speeding cars in quiet residential neighborhoods is a chronic issue. The recently enacted Traffic Calming Program, of which I was one of the key sponsors, is a good first step towards addressing this problem. One of the first areas to be awarded a grant to ease traffic concerns is Paine Avenue and this project should come to fruition later this spring. If you are concerned about speeding traffic in your neighborhood, please contact the Department of Public Works 654-2130 for an application to participate in this program.
