Plans to build a yeshiva day camp in Cornwall aren’t sitting well with some residents.
Supervisor Richard Randazzo says reported Kiryas Joel developer Israel Kraus wants to put Camp Yedidim on two lots - one on Boulder Drive and another off Route 32.
There are currently single-family properties on the site that would need to be zoned commercial for the camp to be approved - something that could put a wrench in plans.
Randazzo says he told the developer that they aren't looking to do individual zoning changes. Randazzo says the town is looking to update its comprehensive plan, which would put the proposal and others on hold for six months.
He says either way, public opinion, including concern about the impacts of a possible religious tax exemption, will be considered.
Some neighbors say they aren’t happy with the camp proposal.
"They got enough room in Monroe and they're spreading out there and causing problems," says Thomas Fertis, of Cornwall.
Developer Israel Kraus declined to comment on the proposed project.
A public hearing on Cornwall's comprehensive plan and Camp Yedidim is scheduled for Nov. 13.
