Lowey Secures Additional Funds for Davids Island

The exceptionally high cost of environmental remediation on Davids Island has been among the principal obstacles to development. Last year, Congresswoman Nita Lowey secured $1.5 million for clean-up expenses. In just the past few weeks, Rep. Lowey followed up with an additional $4 million. Although several years (at least) of work and discussion remain before plans of any kind can be implemented, these appropriations will go a long way towards transforming Davids Island into a publicly-accessible asset to New Rochelle and the region.
