We are non-partisan group dedicated to saving Fair Lawn's historic Daly Field from high-density development, which will include 165 new townhouses, 463 new bedrooms, and only 84 unassigned parking spaces. Fire ladder trucks can't fully access some streets, and a proposed crosswalk across Plaza Road at Ramsey Terrace has sub-standard sight lines, putting children at risk.  

This development not only will destroy the character and property values of the area but lead to traffic congestion and higher taxes in Fair Lawn. Landmark currently is presenting its development plan to the Fair Lawn Planning Board, with the next hearing scheduled for Monday, July 9 at 7:30 pm in the council chamber of the Municipal Building. Please attend if you can!

Press Release: Neighbors Hire Attorney to Fight Daly Field Development

 

BACKGROUND

The developent has been controversial since early 2004, when the Radburn Association contracted to sell the grassy 5.7-acre Daly Field, used by generations of Fair Lawn residents for baseball, soccer and kite flying, to Landmark L.L.C. Landmark already owed the adjacent 4.4-acre lot known as the Hayward property, which sits north of Daly Field. In 2009 Landmark sued the borough and was successful in winning a "builder's remedy" under New Jersey's affordable housing laws that cleared the way for up to 200 units on both properties, subject to planning board approval of certain details. However, the properties are heavily polluted with dangerous chemicals, and the plan has several additional aspects that place the public health and safety at risk. This development still can be stopped!
