Stony Point – The Stony Point Action Committee for the Environment (SPACE) will be hosting a “town hall” style public meeting at the RHO Community Building at 5 Clubhouse Lane in Stony Point on September 17 at 7 p.m., where it hopes to highlight some of the environmental issues facing the county.

The meeting will function as an information session for Rockland residents who wish to learn about emerging issues in Stony Point, including the Champlain-Hudson Power Express (CHPE) high energy cable, United Water’s proposed desalination plant in Haverstraw and proposed amendments to the Stony Point Master Plan.

A question-and-answer period will also occur at the meeting for residents with questions or concerns about such environmental issues.

SPACE is a not-for-profit organization which has campaigned for environmental awareness and participated in local activism for years. They are among the strongest local voices on environmental issues, working with groups such as the Rockland Water Coalition and pushing for public comment in debates over desalination and CHPE.
