Thanks to the efforts of many, the Palisades have once again been saved from unnecessary development. On June 23rd, the Protect the Palisades leadership team announced that an agreement had been reached with LG Electronics to lower the height of their proposed corporate headquarters to just below the treeline, ending a two year old battle.
The negotiations between LG and the Protect the Palisades coalition were ongoing since an appeal was filed nearly a year ago. Scenic Hudson, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the NY-NJ Trail Conference, the NJ Federation of Women's Clubs, and Larry Rockefeller led the negotiations to their successful conclusion.
The Conservancy woudl like to express its heartfelt thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this possible. Well done!Click here for more information
