RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Residents upset about the amount and speed of development in Ramapo rallied this week in protest of a plan to build a religious school and a dormitory, according to a report by lohud.com

Much of the town’s recent growth has been ascribed to the rapid rise in its Hasidic and Orthodox Jewish populations, lohud.com reported.

The protest was held Tuesday, March 8, at Town Hall, lohud.com said.

The crux of the opposition to the projects set for Spook Rock and Highview roads in the Village of Suffern is the continued encroachment of non-residential uses into residential neighborhoods and the resulting burden on roads and water and sewer lines, homeowners say, the lohud.com article said.
