ROSA 101

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.

We have laser focus on the development proposed at Patrick Farm, and our membership extends beyond the borders of Ramapo to include anyone in Rockland, Bergen or Orange Counties (whether on well or public water) who is dependent upon the Ramapo River Basin Aquifer, which is the main source of water to most residents in these areas.

ROSA is not anti-development.  We are for what is reasonable and sustainable as it affects our water, traffic, safety, environment, property values and ratables (projects that will contribute tax income).

ROSA's strategy is based strictly on merit.  We are calling for an independent, comprehensive review as it relates to professional zoning law, environmental, and safety review.
