Rally to Oppose Development on 90 Rochelle Ave

A banner image that reads: Build Something Better. Rally to Oppose Proposed Development at 90 Rochelle Ave

Meet on the sidewalk of 90 Rochelle Ave

After months of open communication, the design proposal at 90 Rochelle Ave has remained unchanged since the first CDR Committee meeting held in October 2021. We invite the community to join us for a rally to oppose the current development.

On October 5, 2021, WICA hosted a Community Zoning Meeting and Official Vote on the proposed design for 90 Rochelle Avenue. 496 votes were cast and verified – a record turnout for the neighborhood. Of those votes, 491 participants opposed the proposal and 100% of the near neighbors were against the current design. The community made it clear that we want to see a new proposal for the site.

Let the Zoning Board of Adjustment know that we want the developers to build something better.


The ZBA Hearing has been scheduled for June 21st at 9:30am. The date for the 2nd CDR Committee Meeting has not yet been scheduled. We will update the community once we are informed of any additional details.
