New Rochelle Armory – SOA Meeting Highlights

April 17, 2010

On hand to address a  crowd mixed with long time members and new supporters, Save Our Armory (SOA) executive committee members Ron Tocci (frmr NYS Assemblyman), and Peter Parente discussed the possibilities centered around a potential multi million dollar venture with Monroe College of New Rochelle and local veteran’s groups. Exploring possible sites for a new sports arena for the local college’s basketball team, the Armory is being considered as a venue that would support the needs of a local institution along with preserving the rich history of the city. While the discussions can only be categorized as “informal” and in a fact-finding stage, this serves to underscore just one of the many ways the Armory preservation can move forward and provide a positive contribution to the city of New Rochelle.

An update will be provided at the next meeting. Look for the date and time on the Talk of the Sound’s Calendar of Events
