The developers of a proposed girls school fed by a Chasidic development are fighting back following the school’s Thursday night rejection by the Planning Board of an eastern Sullivan County village.
A lawsuit is a possibility.
After the cheers of the crowd of about 150 died down following the board’s 3-1 vote, developer Ken Nakdimen threatened that legal action. Such a school is apparently allowed by Bloomingburg zoning.
“They don’t have a right to do this,” he said. “They’re opening themselves up to a lawsuit.”
On Friday, Nakdimen’s business partner, Shalom Lamm, would not rule out a suit, issuing this statement:
“We strongly believe that the application for the school should have been approved on its merits and we are disappointed in the planning board’s decision. We plan on appealing this decision immediately.”
