Notice of Acceptance of Final GEIS

Westchester County - The City of New Rochelle City Council, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed City of New Rochelle Downtown Overlay Zone and Zoning Map Amendments. A public hearing on the Final GEIS will be held on November 24, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the New Rochelle City Hall, City Council Chambers, 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY10801. The Final GEIS is available from the City Clerk's Office, New Rochelle City Hall, 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY 10801 and on line at: http://www.newrochelleny.com/RDRXR.

The City of New Rochelle and the selected Master Developer (RDRXR) are proposing the adoption of a new Downtown Overlay Zone for an approximately 274 acre area of the downtown, centered around the New Rochelle train station. The Downtown Overlay Zone is proposed as an optional overlay district, whereby landowners can choose to opt into development under the proposed Downtown Overlay Zone requirements. The Downtown Overlay Zone is broken into six Overlay Districts (DO-1 through DO-6) of varying density and uses. The highest density district, DO-1, is located in the core downtown in close proximity to the New Rochelle Train Station. The districts decrease in density and permitted heights as they move away from the DO-1 District. The intent of the Downtown Overlay District is to encourage downtown redevelopment through the creation of an active, mixed-use district with convenient, safe and pleasant access to the New Rochelle Transportation Center. The proposed Downtown Overlay Zone would standardize uses to encourage the development of economically diverse high quality housing, modern retail, commercial, office, hotel space and civic uses, integrated with well-designed pedestrian friendly streetscapes, and appropriately placed open and green spaces. The overlay districts currently existing in the zoning code (Downtown Density Bonus Floating Overlay Zone, West Downtown Business Floating District, and Transit Oriented Floating District) would be replaced by the proposed Downtown Overlay Zone.

The Proposed Action has the potential to incentivize new development in the Downtown over the next ten years, resulting in the potential for approximately 5,500 units of high-density residential use, approximately one million square feet of retail, approximately 1.2 million square feet of office space, and approximately 3.7 million square feet of other commercial uses (i.e. adult care, hotel, cultural uses, education and institutional uses, research and design, etc.). This development program would be spread across all six districts within the Downtown Overlay District

The project is located on 274± acres within the downtown portion of the City of New Rochelle, New York.
