On Capitol Hill

Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon and Mayor Noam Bramson discuss the Linc project with Senator Chuck Schumer

Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon and I spent yesterday in Washington, DC seeking federal support for New Rochelle planning initiatives by meeting with Department of Transportation officials and with our federal representatives. Good, productive conversations, and we are grateful to Senators Schumer and Gillibrand and Representative Engel — as well as their staffs — for their strong support.

In recent years, New Rochelle has secured millions in competitive federal and state grants for local priorities, including downtown revitalization, complete streets, traffic signalization, sanitary systems, and more. Maintaining constructive relationships with our state and federal officials is essential to our continuing success.
