Village View Cluster Sub-division Will Impact Warwick — 9 Comments

  1. I hope we are not talking about another Hasidic development. They are frantically shopping all over Orange County.
    They do not follow gentile laws at all and refuse to pay taxes once in place. They follow only their Rabbi and crimes are hidden and not addressed . The rest of the community is left having to pay for them. Hence , your taxes go up. Most of them are not concerned about being environmentally friendly. And there is always trash everywhere., making it look like a dump. Sorry for the rant. But the 100 acres is what they are always looking for and that triggered my response.

    • I hope you get your “gentile” laws straight and check your facts. I am addressing you only because I hesitate to be on the same side as a bigot. Despite your rant, I want to thank you for asking concerned
      people to become involved in what is being proposed on this site. A large protest would be inappropriate at this location (for any group). It would be helpful if readers knew where to go to get information. It may be that this topic will be discussed on May 17th. Get busy and get there, but be concerned with the property and its effect on the area, and stick with facts. If we are to protect the property and the community, I believe we need to refrain from attacking any group but rather stay with the facts about what is best for the area..

  2. The word project is written about as protest. I mean a large project would be inappropriate, A large protest would be good.

  3. At the rate they reproduce, where will it all end.!? They are a like a country within a country. They do as they wish. They see us, their neighbors as dirt, unclean Gentiles. Yet they cost the surrounding communities to have higher taxes to pay for all the dead beats in their community. Where’s sustainable Warwick and the rest of the Land Trust community.?!! Nowhere to be found.!

  4. I totally agree about a certain group that has no respect for the other people , let alone the land!! I think if we let this start, we will no longer have the community we all love. I don’t know about any other person, but I feel if we let this PROJECT go through it will be the beginning of the end of our wonderful town and village. I for one like having people that say hello, come to the free concerts and so forth. If this goes through, I feel we will no longer have that. We all want what’s best for our families and I understand that, it’s only normal. You have to admit, once a certain group starts to build their PROJECTS, they have no respect for anybody outside their group, I feel we it a need to keep the area the way it is. I don’t know about anybody else but that’s the way I feel about this.

  5. If this project is in fact any way associated with the Hasidic community I warn everyone to start and protest. Just speak to the Gentile community residing in Monroe for what the Hasids have done to that community. Now some weak minded individuals might state my remarks are bigoted. Just know I am a Jew and cannot support any hasidic growth in the Warwick community. They destroy their envoronment and fight to the very end vis a vis paying their fair share of taxes. Just how it is folks.

  6. I would like to work against the project proposed for this site. It is wrong in many ways including going against the concept of a few houses built with parks and walking paths (the idea that the purpose of cluster housing is to preserve the environment and provided benefits to the community). However, I have no interest in bashing people who live differently from me and have different values. If the anti-Valley View group aims to spew hatred against anyone rather than work for Warwick, I want nothing to do with it. By the way, there have been plenty of bigots in all religions. I am ashamed of anyone who stands up and says, “I am a ______, so I can say bigoted things against “others .” who are classified with me.( Check the Monroe school system that is scrambling to find money to compensate from the losses they experience from losing KJ taxes.) I do not want to argue for or against Chasidim; I want to work for Warwick against this inappropriate development, Please do not create a group that takes our mission as a place to blast others. Let us “start and protest” because we care about our community. I would like to hear consideration of a small number of houses with paths and environmentally sound community additions or some other suggestions for the land.

  7. If you are interested in stopping Valley View and learning about other inappropriate land sales, there will be an initial start up meeting of CUPON, Citizens United to Protect Our Neighborhoods on Saturday, January 19th at 11:00 am at the South Blooming Grove Firehouse 819 Rt. 208 Monroe, NY

    Went to an amazing standing room only meeting of CUPON in Nanuet, last week. CUPON has 15 chapters in Rockland and NJ. This is a nonprofit all volunteer group that helps communities preserve their landscape and culture, take care of the environment and safeguard the health and safety of all citizens and first responders.

    Here’s more on CUPON:

    Their aim is to:

    Identify unsafe, overcrowded and illegal buildings and work with Health Departments, building inspectors and rental registries to stop code violations.

    Monitors requests for Zone variances put before town planning and zoning boards and contests those that are not in the best interest of the community.

    Plans rebuttals to variances and if the variance is approved despite community disagreement, will get legal counsel and work with a Land Planner.

    Will help communities identify and report code violations, including unkempt property, junk removal and unsightly litter. In Clarkstown, Rockland county codes are enforced through the courts and fines and injunctions are handled in courts.

    Helps fight blockbusting and solicitation from realtors who post signs, flyers and sometimes threatening offers to purchase their homes. CUPON will help create no-solicitation zones and provide information and evidence to state authorities who can declare areas “cease and desist” solicitation areas.

    Monitors potential property sales and communicates possible concerns to its communications committee, which will inform citizens.
