City Encourages Measures Related to Water Quality

Through the work of New Rochelle Director of Planning Ed Lynch and the New Rochelle Planning Board, Shoprite was encouraged to include a number of beneficial features at their new Palmer Avenue store, above and beyond local code requirements. These include an underground oil-grit separator and a surface bio-swale to clean water running off their parking lot before discharging into the Sound. In addition, Shoprite agreed to introduce pedestrian traffic signals, additional sidewalks and walkways. And a new traffic light is scheduled to be installed at the eastern entrance to the Shoprite parking area.
