Local group forms to curb development in Westchester

August 24, 2017 04:58PM

Groups of local citizens who feel “under attack” by the wave of development sweeping through Westchester County have banded together to form the Greater Teatown Defense Alliance, an umbrella organization representing existing advocacy groups from parts of Cortlandt, New Castle, Ossining and Yorktown, LoHud reported. Teatown hopes to represent its members at town meetings, in election campaigns and in court. “We are under attack, and that requires a broader, coordinated response,” said Karen Wells, chairperson of the advocacy group. [Lohud]
