Save Rifle Camp Park!

*  ALERT!  *
522 Valley Road in Clifton is a large site with a single dilapidated house on it. Developers have noticed! (MAP)

NEXT MEETING where 522 is before the Clifton Zoning Board:
(Next Meeting for 522 Valley will be announced!)

Please consider signing this petition opposing the clear cutting of 3.8 acres of mature forest habitat on the steep slope of Garret Mountain directly below Rifle Camp Park to make way for the construction of 21 townhomes at 522 Valley Rd. in Clifton, NJ. This is an environmentally sensitive area and part of Audubon’s Garret Mountain IBA/Important Bird Area, a vital stopover for migratory birds. This project would also negatively impact the view from the park, particularly along the ridge in the area of the pond. Please help stop further destruction of this important and irreplaceable natural resource.

Neighbors for Neighbors petition to:
Save Garret Mountain at 522 Valley Rd from Overdevelopment

This is currently scheduled to be heard at one of Clifton’s Zoning Board (Board of Adjustment) meetings. The BOA meets on the First and Third Wednesday of each Month at 7 PM at City Hall 900 Clifton Ave, Clifton, NJ 07012. Please check their webpage to view current agendas for any changes to their schedule that may occur, or contact Zoning at 973-470-5808
