At a recent League of Women Voters Coffee & Conversation which featured Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon.
Development Commissioner Aragon addressed “Growth & Preservation” in New Rochelle. He spoke of this topic during the meeting. I am sorry more people couldn’t be there it was very interesting and gave some insight to what is in store for the future of New Rochelle.
I was glad to see the RFP for the study since I recently spoke of the need for The New Rochelle City Council to do some studying and start to speak about how The City of New Rochelle and The City School District of New Rochelle must sit down and discuss the wide array of problems they have in common. How The City Council Must be more in touch with The City School District of New Rochelle.
New Rochelle, Who is the real Bully in the school yard? It’s time for changes in the playground called The City of New Rochelle.

When taxes go up The City Council takes a beating. The problem is that the School Taxes are a larger chunk of our tax bills. So it is important to work together and be accountable both within The City of New Rochelle and The City School District of New Rochelle.
Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon good luck and keep the City Staff and City Council in line for a successful and rejuvenated New Rochelle.
