“Expected Frivolous Law Suit”

Dear COGN members:

As many of you may have heard, it has been reported that Ateres Bais Yakov Academy (“ABY”) has filed a federal RLUIPA complaint against the Town of Clarkstown, the Town Supervisor, CUPON Inc., and CUPON of Greater Nanuet. ABY is alleging discrimination and claims that the Town violated its “constitutional, civil, and statutory rights.”

We disagree.

As we have long stated, the sale of the Church to ABY was opposed by COGN on the grounds that bringing a school to that location was not only in violation of zoning laws, but would constitute a safety hazard for our children in an already heavily trafficked area. All of our communications with the public and the media have been consistent from the beginning of this process and we have, at all times, exhorted our membership to be respectful and inclusive when discussing our opposition to ABY’s intended use for the property.

With the help of our attorney, Steve Mogel, we will fight what is obviously a frivolous legal action. Certainly, ABY is within its rights to file a lawsuit. And, COGN was and is within its constitutional right to organize and oppose any activity that violates land use and zoning laws and which negatively impacts our neighborhoods. We will not bow to bullying tactics in our commitment to keep our community safe.

As always, we thank you for your support and ask that now, more than ever, you stand with us. Let’s fight the good fight together!

With gratitude,

CUPON of Greater Nanuet

On Wednesday evening, CUPON of Greater Nanuet read the following statement at the Clarkstown Planning Board Public Hearing, regarding to the proposed cell tower on the property owned by the Sisters of Charity located at 148 Convent Road.

“We are a community organization with over 900 members, whose mission is to protect our neighborhoods from over-development and land use violations.

Our board and membership are concerned about the current proposed plans to build a cell tower on the property owned by the Sisters of Charity in Nanuet.

While COGN is not actively opposing the implementation of such a tower, we strongly believe that its location must be carefully studied in order to ascertain whether it poses any potential dangers or negatively impacts the character of the neighborhood.

If such a study concludes that the welfare of residents in the area would be compromised, COGN would want to work collaboratively with the Town of Clarkstown on identifying better sites for the project.

We hereby ask that any approvals for this cell tower project be delayed until a more thorough study has been made to the satisfaction of the residents of the Nanuet community.”

Because of the fact that we and other community groups raised their voices, the vote was delayed subject to further study. The Clarkstown Planning Board will set a date for another public hearing where discussions will continue on this matter. COGN will keep the community updated on all developments.
