Houses of Worship Should NOT Be Allowed in Multi-family Dwellings

Preserving a residential environment is key to civilian life. The nature of high occupancy houses of worship pose health and fire safety risks to both the house of worship and the families in that dwelling. In the event of an emergency, limited exits and space prove problematic for residents, worshipers, and emergency personnel. Additionally there are traffic violations when worshipers' vehicles and those of the residents provide an overcrowding of traffic. 

Currently in the Town of Ramapo, these zoning violations are allowed as long as there is town approval. This is a matter of public safety and the effects concern all members of the community.
