Suffern Mayor John Keegan thinks it would be a good idea for residents to have a chance to tour the former Tilcon New York guarry where a developer wants to build at least 440 condominiums.
It’s a place that’s been off limits for decades while the quarry operated, so few residents have had a chance to see the property and the views of the Ramapo Mountains.

The second-most populous village in Ramapo appears to be at the cusp of a condominium construction craze.
Not only is the village looking to develop condominiums in an urban renewal site along Orange Avenue, but a builder has proposed as many as 440 in a spent quarry between Lafayette Avenue and the Thruway.
The latter plan is to be coupled with a flood-control project that would draw water from the Mahwah River, relief long sought, especially by residents of the Squire’s Gate neighborhood that was last swamped by Hurricane Floyd.
Some downtown merchants support the Orange Avenue project as bringing residents closer to their shops.
Do you have any concerns? Is increased traffic a worry? What about the water supply? How do Suffern folks feel about the potential of having a couple of thousand new neighbors?
