Assemblyman Schmitt Writes Letter to New York’s Attorney General
In light of recent controversy over a development in Chester where residents say the planned infrastructure and density is a danger to the environment, and the builder says the complaint is generated by bias, the New York State Attorney General stepped in. This letter from Assemblyman Colin Schmitt to Attorney General Letitia James invites her to come and discuss the issue with him and with residents, so she can get a more realistic picture of the ongoing controversy about this and other communities in Orange County which believe they are on the verge of reaching the end of environmentally safe “buildout” levels. They believe the area’s rural character and sustainable infrastructure needs to be protected, while the builder believes the resistance is based on anti-semitism. Schmitt’s letter says that if she comes for a visit she will see their real ongoing concerns.
