Clarkstown Residents Not In Favor Of Proposed Buckley Farms Development

NEW CITY, N.Y. — Proposed plans to build 200 rental units and 22 single-family homes on a North Main Street stretch of land known as Buckley Farms are drawing little support from area residents, according to lohud.com.

The development plan for the 30-acre site, the largest to come before the town of Clarkstown in several years, would include six apartment buildings among the single-family homes, according to lohud.com.

While the Apfelbaum family, the developers seeking to build on the land, and their attorney feel the project is “a good project in this location,” several town residents already living in the area believe the proposed plans for the land would be harmful to the local environment, according to lohud.com.

Concerns over the site ranged from the development of a “transient community,” to overcrowding, traffic, increased noise and light pollution, according to lohud.com.
