NEW CITY, N.Y. – Clarkstown’s Department of Environmental Control issued a violation notice last week to a developer seeking to build on a 30-acre site off North Main Street, according to lohud.com.

An employee of General Boring Inc., which was testing water and soil on the grounds, is alleged to have gotten into an argument with Jocelyn Feurstein on Tuesday after workers knocked down a tree near Feurstein’s property, according to lohud.com, which reported that the DEC responded to the scene and told the Ridgefield Road woman that General Boring was within its rights to knock the tree down.

Feurstein told lohud.com that she continued to research the issue and found that a permit is needed before knocking down trees in a federal wetland. When she explained this to the DEC, the agency returned the following day and issued the violation, according to lohud.com.

The developers of the site, the Apfelbaum family, are seeking to build 200 senior citizen apartments and 22 single-family homes on the land known as Buckley Farms, according to lohud.com.

The project is highly unpopular with locals already living in the area .

A lawyer for the builder said the violation was the result of “a miscommunication between the testing company and the town,” according to lohud.com.
