The NY State Department of State has announced its Division of Licensing Services will hold a public meeting in Rockland County to consider the need to adopt a Cease and Desist Zone in Orangetown. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 21 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Cultural Arts Center at Rockland Community College, 145 College Road, Suffern. Orangetown Supervisor, Andy Stewart, has worked closely with Assembly Member Ellen Jaffee, State Senator David Carlucci, and the leadership of Citizens United to Protect our Neighborhoods (CUPON) to push the State to schedule this meeting. In a press release Stewart said he applauded the State for “giving area residents the forum to share their concerns about the aggressive, blockbusting tactics some realtors and their representatives employ to get people to sell their homes.” Stewart strongly encourages any resident with a story to tell to testify at the meeting and connect with CUPONChestnutridge@gmail.com. The Department of State has the authority to ban real estate solicitation in hard-hit areas.
