The Orange Avenue Associates project began the site plan review process this week. The Suffern Planning Board declared its intent to be the lead agency for SEQRA purposes, and scheduled a public hearing for November 18.

The Orange Avenue project is a transit oriented development of 92 apartments. It is located across the street from the Suffern train station, and one-half block from downtown Suffern. It required the creation of a new zoning district that reflected this new type of development.
