BREAKING: Bramson declares Forest City/Echo Bay project DOA

New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson, a Democrat, has released the following statement concerning the Forest City project at Echo Bay

“It is clear that a majority of the City Council is now opposed to the Forest City project at Echo Bay, and I expect that the Council will vote on Tuesday to set aside the terms of the Forest City development agreement.

“As a supporter of the project, I am, naturally, disappointed. But New Rochelle remains fully committed to improving our waterfront and downtown, and it’s our job now to focus on the future.

“The debate surrounding Echo Bay was often passionate and intense. Let’s now work together to harness that energy on behalf of the sustainable growth and vitality of the city we love and share.”
