Continues Efforts to Make New Rochelle “Bicycle-Friendly”

Read the Journal News article about this new legislation.

At its last meeting, the City Council approved new legislation to create bicycle parking spaces and lockers. The regulations will apply to new multifamily and attached dwellings of ten or more units and to larger commercial structures. Builders will have the option of constructing bicycle facilities on-site or of contributing funds that the City can employ to install new public bicycle racks. Along with the designation of bicycle routes and our recent public art competition for bike rack design, this is another step towards facilitating bicycle use, which advances both recreational and environmental goals.
