Zoning in the Fifth
The New Rochelle Code
calls for the protection and promotion of the public health, safety,
and welfare; adequate public facilities and services; family privacy;
prevention of traffic congestion; protection from excessive monotony
of building design, enhancement of the community appearance, and
protection of the environment.
The Fifth Avenue area is zoned M-1, Light Manufacturing, which also
allows intense commercial activity, but no residential use. The
City Council, with the Planning Board, must review the proposed
Large-Scale Retail district.
