Beginnings [1]

The Village of Montebello is 4.75-square mile incorporated village located in the Town of Ramapo, Rockland County, New York. Montebello was established in 1986 in part to direct and control the intensity and types of land use allowed in the Village. The interior portion of the Village is marked by a sense of openness, with residential land uses decreasing in density as one travels south to north through the community. The Village is characterized by beautiful tree-filled, rock-strewn rolling hills with stone walls lining most of the older narrow roads. An extensive network of streams, ponds and wetlands enhance the natural and open image of Montebello. As one approaches the New York State Thruway, running generally along the southern edge of the community, residential density increases.

Nonresidential uses are prevalent and include corporate-style office buildings. A neighborhood shopping area along Route 59 on either side of Hemion Road meets many of the local retail and service demands of Montebello residents.
