Kyrias Joel Expansion Approved by Residents

According to results from a special election on Monday night, voters in Monroe have approved the annexation of land to the village of Kyrias Joel. Held for residents living within the 164-acres proposed for annexation who were able to vote yes or no and fifty-two of them came out to cast their vote, with 40 saying yes and 12 saying no. Various municipalities and Orange County have filed a lawsuit with the state Supreme Court, which is holding up the project, stating that the Hasidic Jewish village did not spend enough time to complete the proper environmental studies. Supporters are saying that the studies were accurate and the project is ready to move forward, though opponents believe the high density housing would have a negative impact on the area.
