State Supreme Court Justice Victor Alfieri made a decision recently on the Town of Haverstraw’s plans to build a shopping center on property that would place it on Route 202 right on the border between Ramapo and Haverstraw and would include a new Walmart. The Village of Pomona filed several lawsuits against Haverstraw, one after developers were allowed variances by the Town Zoning Board of Appeals that would enable the to build less parking than town code ordered. Alfieri made a decision that this case would continue if the village wins the overall case against the town. Pomona’s suit states that the town zoning board did not complete appropriate environmental research. The judge also denied Haverstraw’s request to dismiss one of the seven lawsuits against them. Pomona is also appealing a decision made by Justice Gerald Loehr on the approval of proposed development.
