WEST NEW YORK
-- The West New York zoning board will hold a vote deciding the fate of a controversial development project at their upcoming meeting this Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at Public School No. 4, located at 6301 Palisade Ave., and is expected to be well-attended, given the amount of controversy that the project, a planned high rise apartment building on the corner of Boulevard East and 67th Street, has already caused.
The advocacy group Concerned Citizens of West New York has been canvassing around the area that would be affected, claiming that the project would add further congestion to an already-dense part of town. Town officials, meanwhile, have said the project will bring in significant revenue in the same vein as the developments along the Hudson River.
