Ramapo Town Supervisor St. Lawrence Wants To Work On Mega-Mall Solution With Mahwah

RAMAPO, N.Y. (WCBS 880) – A Rockland County town that filed suit against a Bergen County town over building a shopping mall, now says they can work it out.

Two lawsuits have been filed to stop the building of a mall at International Crossroads in Mahwah.

One of the lawsuits was filed by the Village of Suffern over concerns about the economic and environmental impact the massive shopping mall, which is slated to be built just over the Suffern border, would have on the town.

Ramapo town supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence says he’d like to work with the Town of Mahwah on a solution about the shopping mall instead of playing the whole thing out in court.

St. Lawrence says he understands Suffern’s concerns, but says there has to be a friendlier way to resolve the issue.

“The line is there but the reality is that we are one regional community here in northern New Jersey and the lower Hudson Valley and I think we could probably work things out,” said St. Lawrence.

He says issues like traffic and pollution will need to be addressed but believes both townships can come to a solution.

    That’s interesting.
    Now CSL is willing to work things out – but when it comes to his own constituents, he only has deaf ears.
    Why didn’t you ‘work things out’ when Ramapo residents voted down the base ball stadium 2 to 1?
    Why didn’t you ‘work things out’ when you down-zoned the Patrick Farm against the will of the local residents to allow a massive housing development right smack on top of our sole source aquifer?
    Sure hope you get some of the same f y you gave to us!
