On Sunday, Micheal Miller of the Hillcrest branch of CUPON met with more than 60 Chestnut Ridge residents to explain the purpose of the group and to help organize a Chestnut Ridge extension of CUPON. Citizens United to Protect our Neighborhoods is a watchdog group that monitors development and code enforcement in village neighborhoods and attends planning and zoning board meetings. Members also keep an eye on the proceedings in Ramapo Town Court.
The meeting was called by Chestnut Ridge resident Hilda Kogut, and the next step is to gather a core of volunteers and set up a meeting schedule. Anyone interested in becoming a part of the Chestnut Ridge CUPON should contact Hilda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
