Ramapo Looking Into Illegal Yeshiva

According to Ramapo officials a yeshiva on Highview Road is facing violations for an addition that was approved for the single-family home in 2010. According to fire officials for the town, the congregation Khal Bais Usher requested building permits for a one-story, but instead began putting up two and a half stories, which Tallman fire officials claim are used as a house of worship without a certificate of occupancy rather than the approved family room, leading to violations being issued against the congregation. The Building Department also issued violations for failing to file plans and a lack of fire safety precautions. Tallman Fire Department officials and members of the Rockland Illegal Housing Task Force are urging that the addition be taken down and a stop work order be followed by the owners while the congregation attempts to get legally approved for a proper addition. The zoning board will hear the violations and further discuss the issue tonight at 8:00 PM.
