Ridgewood NJ, according to Mayor Susan Knudsen , “A thread on a Facebook group suggests a lack of communication about the June 11 Hudson Street Parking Garage Open House. This is an incredibly important time for Ridgewood and Village Council wants the public to be fully informed about everything we do…. especially when deliberating the design, funding, construction and details of the Hudson Street Parking Garage.

Keeping the record straight, and fully transparent, the May 23, 2018 Village Council meeting outlined the Hudson Street Parking Garage timeline that included the following:
June 5th Village of Ridgewood Planning Board courtesy review (PUBLIC MEETING)
June 11th Open House for the Public 7-8 (PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE)
June 14th Ridgewood Historic Preservation Commission courtesy review (PUBLIC MEETING)

The same information was (and still is) posted on the Village website, social media platforms, emailed via a community organization, and the June 11 Open Public House was announced again on June 6 during the manager’s report. Additionally, I posted the same information to my Mayor Facebook page along with the specific information about the June 11th Open House.

This has been a transparent process and for anyone to suggest otherwise is absolute nonsense.

Questions and comments about the garage are always welcome AND encouraged – email [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected]
