As Transit Oriented Development and Westchester’s healthcare, life sciences and biotech industries proliferate, people are taking notice.
According to a report in this week’s Bloomberg News, since 2011, developers have built or proposed over four dozen residential and commercial projects in Westchester, which now is focused on smart city sustainable growth and high-speed broadband. A little over 11,200 apartments within a half-mile of a Metro-North station are planned or have been built, and commercial projects are on the rise. "Westchester [is trying] to attract a new type of office tenant and resident," wrote David Levitt.

McDonald, Project Director of the Westchester County Association’s Smart City for Gigabit Initiative, will moderate a panel “Cities Ask for Help: Managing the RFP Process” at the Gigabit City Summit in Kansas City, August 1-3, 2017 to which the WCA is sending a contingent.
