Reader says, “leaving was the Right Thing to Do “

I agree with the last comment. We also left several years ago, forced out by a job loss and increase in taxes. Lived through the Valley Expansion debacle and glad it was defeated. With all this development and that travesty of the parking garage Ridgewood will become another Montclair. It was hard to leave but with all that has happened in the past few years since our departure, I’m certain it was the right thing to do. And yes, that Town Garage has been an eyesore and issue of controversy for years. Make the speculators who bought it pay for clean up. It is not the responsibility of the tax payers but sadly it will probably end up as such

  1. If you left because things were so bad, why are you still looking at news about Ridgewood on the blog??? Many of us long time residents are happy here, and using our time to help out where and when we can. Doesn’t mean we don’t criticize or speak out, it just means we have “ownership” in the town. No town is perfect, and the more you know about a place, the more you learn, good and bad.

  2. The village of Ridgewood is not what it used to be .they are just going backwards. It’s a shame the taxes are so damn high. The services are not the same. I’m living in the village for 47 years. In the CBD is getting very dirty.
