Bloomingburg, NY - Judge Plops Down Restraining Order On Hasidic Residences' Certificates At Chestnut Ridge
Bloomingburg, NY - On Friday, a Sullivan County Court judge granted a temporary restraining order on 24 certificates of occupancy granted earlier this month to developers of the controversial Chestnut Ridge Hasidic community in Bloomingburg.
RECORDONLINE.com (http://bit.ly/1KCrnV0) reports that the restraining order was in response to a petition filed late Thursday by the Town of Mamakating stating that, according to its expert, the roads inside the Chestnut Ridge development are in violation of local fire codes and would endanger residents.
In issuing the order, Judge Stephan Shick set a September 9 hearing date on the matter.
Steve Mogel, attorney for the village of Bloomingburg—-who has been locked in a month-long court battle over the certificates with neighboring Mamakating—-said the village’s inspector previously cleared the streets for use.
The architect of the Hasidic community, developer Shalom Lamm, said lawyers for his company Sullivan Farms are set to file an appeal on Monday.
