A major milestone was reached when the Ramapo Town Board accepted the Full Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Watchtower World Headquarters Audio/Video Production Studio on March 23.

The proposal includes 1.7 million square feet of live-work space that will serve as the world-wide producer of media content for the Jehovah’s Witnesses. As part of the project, a new zoning district had to be created.

Acceptance of the FEIS brings the environmental review process closer to conclusion. The next step is the issuance of a Findings Statement, after which the Town will be free to adopt the necessary amendments to its Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code, and then to process the proposed site plan.
