“A grassroots organization has hit the village with its second legal action looking to block a law that allows residential houses of worship across the community.
In a federal action, Citizens United to Protect our Neighborhoods, known as CUPON, and several residents claim the Board of Trustees violated the constitutional rights of secular residents by using land-use regulations to provide exclusively for the religious needs of Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish residents.
The request for an injunction claims officials adopted a proposal largely drafted by the Orthodox Jewish Coalition of Chestnut Ridge. [Read more…]
CUPON April Meeting Wednesday, April 3 at 7:00 PM William P. Faist Ambulance Corps. 3 Red Schoolhouse Rd.
Message from Hilda Kogut to all Chestnut Ridge residents (March 2019):
Hello Chestnut Ridge residents- so much has happened in the last few weeks that it makes one wonder where to start. Let’s start with the Election! First, thanks to all who got out and voted. Not enough of us, however, and the difference in the vote leaves us wondering why the difference between the incumbents and our candidates was only 200 votes. But the positive here is that more voters came out AGAIN, than ever before in a Village election. And, that this was the First time there was ever a contest in an election for Trustee in this Village. [Read more…]

“Micheal Miller faced down snarling dogs and armed police as a teenager during civil rights marches and sit-ins while growing up in North Carolina in the 1960s.

So, the founder of Rockland’s grassroots movement against illegal development and over-development is not easily intimidated.
“When you have faced police and dogs and taking on bigots, you become immune to nasty name-calling and the wishes and powers of the establishment,” the 73-year-old civic activist said.
Miller has his sense of right and wrong, and he’s tried instilling those beliefs earned on the civil rights battlefields to members of Citizens United to Protect Our Neighborhoods — known as CUPON. [Read more…]

The larger issue behind the lawsuit remains Ramapo’s failure to maintain single-family housing, say critics of the expansion plan.
“A lawsuit seeking to void a town agency’s zoning variance to allow high-density housing off Union Road has passed muster with a judge.
Acting Supreme Court Judge Sherri Eisenpress rejected the developer’s attempt to derail the lawsuit filed by citizen’s group CUPON-Hillcrest and Sharon Doucette, whose property shares a narrow driveway with the project, called the Bluefield Extension.
The property is targeted for development of 15 to 20 units on approximately one acre. It sits across from the massive Bluefield complex of multiple family townhouses. [Read more…]
