The High Bridge Coalition has been working towards the reopening of the bridge for nearly 15 years and would like to share our vision with you and hear your thoughts about this most auspicious event. The Harlem River Working Group has been focusing on developing Greenway paths, on street connections and proper signage to make certain that the both boroughs are prepared for the grand reopening.

Englewood Cliffs, NJ Planning Board Public Hearing on New Master Plan
The Board will be scheduling a public hearing to redo its master plan, part of its after-the-
fact attempt to justify its approval of LG’s 143’ foot tower and
new zoning that would allow even more towers. This is another step by Englewood Cliffs to spoil the Palisades Park.
We seek a full house of supporters.
Our message: the Board made the wrong move when it allowed
variances for the 143’ LG tower and then hastily tried to cover its tracks by changing zoning for the entire area atop the Palisades along Route 9W, and it’s making another bad move by redoing its
master plan to cover up the lack of proper planning and the need to continue the protection that the Palisades have enjoyed for over a hundred years.
Join us
