We will fight unsustainable, poorly planned overdevelopment and find a better solution for Patrick Farm.
We are your neighbors, united with one voice. We are informed and engaged citizens, who are professionally organized and legally represented, working to ensure that development is proportional and appropriate for the land on which it is built. Unlike other groups within Ramapo who have a broad view to combat how the town develops all land, ROSA is different.
Don’t make assumptions. Patrick Farm is NOT a DONE DEAL. There is hope. Please take the time to learn more about the issues:
are not our destiny if you join with ROSA. Together, we can bring change.
This will be a difficult and ongoing process. If it were easy, then any single person or village would have already successfully stopped the proposed over-development of Patrick Farm. We must form an alliance within our collective neighborhoods, social circles, and spheres of influence. We need to rely on one another through this enduring proceeding to offer our donations, advocacy and activism.
