Beautification of Neighborhoods
CUPON groups pro-actively look to engage with other citizens and host events that help communities create positive social and environmental change for their neighborhoods. We believe in fostering a better and healthier future through volunteerism and action. We are looking to partner with other environmental and social organizations that believe in the same, feel free to reach out if you have an idea for an event or would like to become a volunteer or partner organization.
Blockbusting has become a pervasive issue all over our region. Some realtors and others are bombarding homeowners via door-knocking, mailing and flyers to sell their homes. Many of these solicitations have threatening and inappropriate undertones. We support no solicitation laws and local ordinances that require organizations and other residents to apply for permits prior to knocking residents’ doors.
Environmental & Local Code Enforcement
Our purpose is the improve the neighborhood by getting rid of unsightly litter, junk, and unkempt property. Local code enforcers are either non-existent, part-time or overloaded. This organization attempts to subsidize code enforcers by informing them of code violations, and following-up to see that they were upheld. The main reason local codes are not adhered to is unawareness, so education is key!
Illegally constructed housing and schools are destructive to neighborhoods. They diminish property values and endanger the occupants and first responders. We aim to identify unsafe, overcrowded, and illegal properties and report them to the appropriate authorities and building inspectors.
We are not opposed to reasonable growth within our community. We are advocates of controlled growth. Growth that ensures new housing, schools and businesses that will enhance the quality of life in Nanuet. We believe in development that complies with health, safety, environmental and zoning laws that will sustain the diversity, harmony and inclusiveness of all residents while protecting environmental resources.
We oppose development that fosters urbanization, stresses our infrastructure, segregates our community, and is not respectful of the environment.
Zoning issues can completely deteriorate a community. We will callout and hold accountable any illegal construction that does not comply with building and zoning codes. We monitor requests for variances submitted to our Planning and Zoning Boards and evaluate them to ensure they will not alter the character of our community in a negative way.
