If you live anywhere near the Beechmont area of New Rochelle, you would have noticed the construction work being performed in the Beechmont Lake.
Per the City of New Rochelle
The Beechmont Lake capital improvement construction Phase 1 began in August 2019 and continue as conditions permit until the end of the year. The project goal is to restore the lake’s health and beauty and ensure it will be enjoyed by our community in years to come.
Contractors will start by removing dead and diseased trees, grading the lake perimeter, and then dredging. While dredging and grading are underway, the lake and its surroundings will become a worksite. In spring 2020, Phase 2 of the project is planned to begin with residual dredging and site work if needed and conclude with the addition of new amenities including a third fountain, benches, a nature trail and enhanced landscaping. ”
The cost is to be approximately $1,850,000. Unfortunately, Covid 19 has slowed down the whole process and it is still under way, but there is definite progress!
New Rochelle is GREAT!
