A New York City developer has proposed a new shopping plaza on Route 17 in Tuxedo that would extend into Sloatsburg. The Village Planning Board will continue looking at the proposal at a meeting on Tuesday, where they will discuss the 63,000 square foot project that will include a supermarket and retail stores, and will connect to the Tuxedo Farms housing development being built there. The residential project will have homes and rental units, parks, playgrounds, and a YMCA in Tuxedo. Though Sloatsburg Mayor Carl Wright stated to the Journal News that the Planning Board has begun approvals for the zone change required to build the shopping center, many have voiced concerns about the effects development would have on the environment in the area, especially because it is in the Ramapo River watershed.
