History

The idea for incorporating a new village came in 2004 when a group called the South Blooming Grove Homeowner's Association were concerned about the expansion of the nearby Satmar Hasidim village of Kiryas Joel and hoped to check it by incorporating. After gathering over 1,000 signatures in favor of the new village, a New York State Supreme Court Justice put things on hold in January 2005. [1] Finally, on June 29, 2006, incorporation passed overwhelmingly, 856 votes to 89. [2]

A similar incorporation vote was held August 11, 2006 in the neighboring Town of Woodbury; it also passed by a wide margin.

On September 2, 2006, South Blooming Grove held its first board elections. The candidates for mayor (Robert Jeroloman) and four trustee seats (Garry Dugan, Jim Mulany, Dorine Sas and John Hickey) ran unopposed. These five were re-elected, again unopposed, in March 2008.
