Legal Threat Stymies Proposed Ramapo Housing Development

RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Environmental activists, concerned about the potential effects of a massive housing project near Pomona on local water supplies, have thrown another monkey wrench into the works, according to a report by lohud.

Following Wednesday’s Planning Board approval of site plans for a 479-unit development known as Patrick Farm just outside Pomona, the group announced it would file an Article 78 petition challenging the decision, lohud reported.

Representatives of Ramapo Organized for Sustainability and a Safe Aquifer, or ROSA, say they are worried about wetlands that supply drinking water, the project’s nearness to a natural gas pipeline and the sheer size of the development itself, the lohud story said.
