Iona Nixes North Ave. Dorm Plan


Iona College neighbors will apparently have a say in finding alternatives to the school’s plans to build a 10-story dorm on North Avenue.

Iona leaders on Tuesday said they had scrapped plans to build the facility in response to fierce opposition from the nearby community, even though a growing student population warrants new housing.

Iona leaders and New Rochelle officials, including Mayor Noam Bramson said they still need to find a way to house students, and will be looking for alternatives with neighbors’ help.
