In an after-the-fact attempt to justify its approval of LG's 143-foot tower, the Englewood Cliffs Planning Board wants to redo its master plan, a move which would forever erase the zoning rules that limit buildings adjacent to Palisades Interstate Park to 35 feet. (For background: http://bit.ly/Ocev1s.)
THIS PUBLIC HEARING IS OUR BEST CHANCE TO TELL ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS TO PRESERVE THE PALISADES!
We need everyone who cares about the Palisades to let Englewood Cliffs, a town of just 5,281 people, know it can't ruin the Palisades for the millions who treasure it.
It made a bad move when it granted variances for LG's new headquarters, and now it wants to make things worse.
A changed master plan would not only allow for LG's tower, but it would also open the door for more high-rise development along the Palisades.
Your presence will make a difference (speaking is optional). Please join us at UPPER SCHOOL on April 30 to tell Englewood Cliffs enough is enough! The meeting starts at 7:30pm, but please arrive early.
