This bill would prohibit any development that exceeds 35 feet in height in the Hudson River Palisades viewshed. The beauty of the Hudson River Palisades has been threatened by the approval of a high-rise development at the top of the cliffs. The scenic, iconic, and unspoiled views of the lower Hudson River have been protected for over 100 years, and height limits on building above the tree line have been respected until now. This bill would prevent such development from marring the natural beauty of this previously unspoiled ridgeline. The bill would apply retroactively to any development for which the foundation has not been completed by May 1, 2014.
