PARKING GARAGE –
We are so excited -88 years the Chamber has been working on getting a parking garage for the Village of Ridgewood.
We are hopeful that this will happen soon!

Thursday, August 20 at 8:30am-Chamber office
The Ridgewood Chamber now invites you to a
“call to action” meeting to put the facts on paper why this garage will not:
cost the residents more taxes,
why it will save their “downtown town”.
All businesses have a vested interest in
this parking garage.
Ridgewood NEEDS to bring the infrastructure of its business district up-to-date –
NOW IS THE TIME.

Village Council Approves Pre-construction Funding for Hudson Street Parking Garage

3480 – Bond Ordinance – Pre-construction Funding for Hudson Street Parking Garage ($500,000)

Ridgewood NJ, The Village Council approved the $500K “preliminary” expense by a 4-1 vote with Knudsen being the only “no.”

Wording for the “bogus” non-binding referendum passed unanimously.  Expect property taxes to jump as a result.  There is no way in the world parking utility revenues will ever be able to completely pay off the principal and interest on a $15 million bond.
