Village Council Tables Vote on High Density Housing

I’d like to know which ones of our council members will attend this hearing and speak out against the outrage that is called “affordable housing.” Ridgewood should be out front leading this effort, not wallowing in self-pity and over-development and cowering to the developers seeking to profit from their strangulation of our town
Mayor Hache?
Deputy Mayor Knudsen?
Councilman Sedon?
Councilman Voight?
Councilwoman Walsh?
Let us know what you are doing to stop the over-development, or at least come out and say you support it and wish to see it continue.

Reader says , “it is vital that the council members clearly state their position and how they plan to represent us (on high density housing)”

village Council Elections

“We have only met a small portion of our affordable housing. The massive downtown projects will be mulitiplied several times in order to meet the numbers. That is becuase of the way the council allowed the overbuilding to occur.

Going back to the original comment, i think it is vital that the council members clearly state their position and how they plan to represent us. Didn’t like Aronson, and thought he lied through his teeth, but he did speak openly about how he planned to turn Ridgewood into a city of multi-family homes, littered with parking garages and low end stores. And he had Pucc speaking up right next to him saying how he owed it to the Village to tear it down.

So, where does this current council stand?
