Club joins effort to save Palisades The GFWC Woman’s Club of Franklin Lakes is observing National Preservation Month in May by joining with other clubs of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs to save the Palisades from further disturbance and development. Club members are writing letters to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection asking the DEP to protect and preserve the Palisades from proposed development by enforcing the existing “steep slope” restrictions. The regulations prohibit disturbances on slopes that are greater than a 20 percent grade, which can affect safety, water quality and quantity, and the environmental integrity of the landscape. The NJSFWC has a long history of saving the Palisades, dating back to 1896. When New Jersey Governor Voorhees stated he had tried to save the Palisades for 10 years, but it was a hopeless task. In the end, the women won the fight. On April 4, 1900, the New Jersey Legislature passed the Palisades Bill to protecting the section of the Palisades north of the George Washington Bridge. The area of the Palisades that is the subject of the current effort is located south of the protected portion. For information, contact Eileen Leone at (201)848-9330.
