The S.H.I.N.E group extends a heartfelt thanks to all for your dedication to preserving our beautiful suburban Woodcliff Lake community.
7-20-21: Motion made to dismiss the 188 Broadway application on the basis on Res Judicata.
We would like to thank everyone on the Zoning Board for their unanimous decision in last week’s denial of the 188 application for the second time based on the fact that the application was not substantially different from the previous application. The Zoning Board also voted unanimously to deny the case of office space hardship. It was also revealed by appraisal documentation acquired by a concerned citizen through OPRAH that the owners’ intentions were to construct an apartment complex prior to their purchase. We greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts to protect the quality of life in Woodcliff Lake.
The members of S.H.I.N.E are very proud in how our community collectively came together in fighting to set a precedent. Your support in attending the Zoning Board meetings, watching on TV, writing letters, spreading info with neighbors, asking questions and sharing your comments and concerns is greatly appreciated.
This fight is not completely over. At the conclusion of the Zoning Board Meeting, Paul Kaufman (part-owner and applicant lawyer) stated “…For now”. Currently the applicant has an appeal for the 2019 denial that is awaiting a decision by Judge Padovano.

The S.H.I.N.E group asks for your continued support in protecting our town from predatory developers.
