Special Village Board Meeting, Tuesday January 15 at 7:30 PM at the Chestnut Ridge Middle School, 892 Chestnut Ridge Rd., Spring Valley. This meeting is another continuation of the special hearing on proposed large scale zoning changes.
We want to thank everyone who attended the previous meetings, we had 1000 people at the first and over 600 at the second meeting
We need to attend this meeting because the board is getting close to making a final decision!
While CUPON believes that the Village should examine and modify its zoning laws, it strongly urges the Board not to enact the Proposed Zoning Changes and, instead, go through the process of adopting a comprehensive plan, consistent with New York and federal law (including RLUIPA). The comprehensive plan must—among other things—address the needs of all members of the community, including those in various religious communities.
We ask for your continued participation in this matter so the Village Board knows we will not sit by while they try to pass laws that do not benefit the ENTIRE Village and ultimately change the character and sustainability of our beautiful Village to benefit a minority of it’s residents.
If you plan to speak please reference your comments to the law specifically and it’s detriment to our neighborhood, This issue is solely about poor governance making poor decisions that will affect us. Emotional outbursts and heckling will not strengthen our position, it will just weaken our argument. THIS IS ABOUT THE LAW and the bias it will create regarding building and zoning!
Please tell you neighbors and friends how important it is that we stand, TOGETHER, to oppose this! For more information including links to the proposed amendments and professional comments visit the CUPON Chestnut Ridge website,
Links for the previous meeting videos and the actual proposed law and our rebuttal as provided by our OWN Planning board and the certified Planner who’s comments are eye opening to say the least are available on our website https://cuponofchestnutridge.org
We are also trying to devise different fundraising methods to support OUR cause. If you have any ideas or suggestion please e-mail us
We thank you for your continued support!!!
