[ARCHIVED] GreeNR Sustainability Plan Approved

Capping a two-year process, the City of New Rochelle last night approved its first-ever Sustainability Plan, “GreeNR”. New Rochelle becomes the first community in Westchester County to create such a plan.

The GreeNR Sustainability Plan is aimed at achieving economic and environmental progress during the next twenty years. For government, GreeNR puts a premium on saving tax dollars by reducing waste, promoting efficiency and securing a return on public investments. GreeNR also suggests green alternatives to costly traditional infrastructure. For the private sector, GreeNR’s recommendations are intended primarily to provide information and create new voluntary options for sustainable action, so that residents, business owners and local institutions can make the best choices for themselves and also, in many cases, save money.

“This is an important milestone for our city,” said Mayor Noam Bramson. “The Council’s action positions New Rochelle as a leader in sustainable policy-making and provides an excellent road map for improving our quality of life and cutting costs. I applaud the many volunteers who worked so hard to shape this community-based vision for a healthy future.”
