Ramapo Central School Board to Vote on Developer’s Tax Deal

Orange Avenue Assoiciates, LLC, the developer set to build a complex in Suffern with 91 apartments will be speaking with the Ramapo central School Board to make a deal on taxes. The developer is seeking a 35-year, in-liue of taxes plan that would allow them to pay the same $77,400 in school taxes for the first five-years, after that it will increase four percent every five-years. The final five-years the developer will pay $97,936. The village board voted in May to approve a tax deal for the renewal and development of the area on Orange County Avenue, and if the school board approves it as well, the Ramapo Town Board will then vote on the proposal. The meeting will take place tonight at the school administrative building at 45 Mountain Ave, at 5:00 PM. Craig Long, President of the school board stated that they are giving the developer a thirty-minute slot to present and a decision will be made after the board has made time to discuss. joshua Goldstein with Orange Avenue Associates stated that the project will financially improve the downtown area and the small size of apartments will mean not many children moving in and putting stress on the district.
