YONKERS, NY — July 31, 2020 — Yonkers 6th District Councilman Anthony Merante will be joined by residents, homeowners, members of StopUPS.org, and other elected officials to protest the planned expansion of this UPS facility. Organizers fear that UPS’s plans, if approved by the Yonkers Planning Board, would produce a safety hazard with its above ground gasoline tanks, excessive traffic and noise generated by its 24/7 operation with trailers and trucks coming and going would thereby destroy the quality of life for this neighborhood and the peaceful enjoyment by its residents. An environmental impact study is warranted before the Planning Board considers UPS’s requests.
DATE: Wednesday, August 5, 2020
PLACE: UPS Facility, 555 Tuckahoe Rd, Yonkers, NY 10710. (East Grassy Sprain Road by the construction area for the parking lot)
Yonkers City Councilman Anthony Merante (District 6)
