Kiryas Joel Drops 6-Year-Old Lawsuit Against Woodbury

KIRYAS JOEL, N.Y. – The village of Kiryas Joel officially dropped its 6-year-old lawsuit for "exclusionary planning" in Woodbury on Thursday, according to Assemblyman James Skoufis.

“This is a major win for Woodbury residents,” Skoufis said. “Our zoning is now protected, the character of our community is maintained, and taxpayer dollars are saved from continued legal expenses.”

In addition to the lawsuit’s withdrawal, Skoufis secured commitments to create a buffer between the towns of Palm Tree and Blooming Grove, establish a new route for the Long Path, and push any legislation pertaining to the Town of Palm Tree contingent on special state aid for Monroe-Woodbury schools.

“Woodbury is a beautiful, suburban community – and we need to keep it that way,” said Supervisor-elect Frank Palermo (D-Woodbury). “This is just the latest example of Assemblyman Skoufis looking out for our residents as he continues to be a champion for our interests. The town is proud of its unwavering partnership with him.”
