Stop the Orange and Rockland Substation from Being Built sign now

It is our opinion that the proposed substation by Orange and Rockland Utilities at Hartley and Cheechunk Roads clearly is out of scale with the proposed residential uses. From the Towns zoning ordinance the purpose of this district (RU) is to promote agriculture and compatible open space and rural uses and to guide residential development so that it protects large blocks of the Town's open space. This substation towers over the trees and surrounding residences and is not in scale with the community.

Additionally, the substation is clearly within the Scenic Road Corridor and will ruin the attractive rural quality of the Town and our neighborhood. This substation is precisely why the Scenic Road Corridor was created. The substation must be moved to a commercial district and not damage the rural residential character of the neighborhood.

We the undersigned urgently petition the Town of Goshen Town Supervisor, Douglas Bloomfield, and Board Members, Ken Newbold, Lou Cappella, George Lyons, and Philip Canterino, to deny Orange and Rockland Utilities the special permit needed to build a substation at the corner of Hartley and Cheechunk Roads in the Town of Goshen.

    City or Town Goshen I'm very concerned about the potential health issues. I also feel the substation will have an impact on real estate values. I am concerned O&R will take out trees as they have reportedly done in Sugarloaf. Please vote "NO".
