Download the Sustainability Coordinator RFP.

As you may know from previous bulletins, environmental sustainability has become a central focus of municipal policy in New Rochelle. We have taken a variety of steps to protect open space, reduce energy consumption, and promote transit-oriented development, and we are now developing legislation to encourage green building design. In order to build on this record and ensure that environmental goals are more fully integrated into the City’s day-to-day actions, the City Council has unanimously approved funds to retain a new part-time sustainability coordinator, who will oversee environmental initiatives, ranging from local law, to administrative practice, to public education.
