Ho-Ho-Kus planners blast online petition

HO-HO-KUS — An online petition opposing a controversial subdivision proposal has disappeared from the Web, not even 24 hours after being dubbed “illegal” by Planning Board Chairman John Hanlon.

Launched via, the petition called on the Planning Board to reject a subdivision application filed months ago by Upper Saddle River’s Chamberlain Developers.

The Planning Board has been considering the application since the spring.

Chamberlain seeks to convert nearly 4 acres of mostly wooded land into 11 single-home plots, called the Hollows at Ho-Ho-Kus.

Seven of the 11 subdivided lots would be accessible via a proposed cul-de-sac opening onto West Saddle River Road, while four other properties would have frontage on Van Dyke Drive.

The survey called the planned project deficient and not compatible with the borough’s master plan.

Hanlon said at a meeting last week the survey was emailed twice to each of the Planning Board’s 10 members; only one, Borough Administrator Don Cirulli, read it.
