New Rochelle is launching a comprehensive initiative to promote environmentally-friendly (and quiet) landscaping practices. Partnering with Sustainable Westchester, the American Green Zone Alliance (AGZA), and Quiet Communities Inc. (QCi), and utilizing a $210,000 State grant, the City will begin transitioning to electric equipment for parks maintenance, while encouraging a similar transition among commercial landscapers through education, training, certification, and equipment rebates. This multi-layered strategy is more likely to be successful than a purely regulatory approach, which would face serious enforcement challenges. I am proud that New Rochelle is leading by example.
