Nyack camp's plan to become year-round dormitory rejectedPosted: Updated:
The Clarkstown Zoning Board of Appeals has rejected a Nyack camp's plan to become a year-round dormitory.
Camp Ramah was hoping to get approval for a dormitory that would house up to 72 students in the off season. Residents who live near the camp say they are relieved because they were worried about having extra traffic in the area.
Clarkstown attorney Tom Mascola says the camp already has a permit to house employees from April to November.
Directors for Camp Ramah tell News 12 that the year-round use would have only had minimal impact on traffic.
Town officials say the camp can reapply for year-round use under a different variance. Camp directors say they are considering their options.
