Citizen Group Opposes Amazon Warehouse in Orange County

(Montgomery, NY) -- More than 260 Montgomery residents have signed an online petition in opposition to more of what they call "Mega Warehouses" being located in the town.

That includes the proposed one million square foot Amazon Fulfillment Center at the intersection of Routes 17-K and 747. The group Residents Protecting Montgomery says the warehouses aren't bringing anything positive to the community and they want a moratorium. Supporters say the Amazon warehouse would bring hundreds of new good paying jobs to the area.
