RIDGEWOOD — Public hearings are winding down on two more applications for multifamily housing projects proposed for the village’s downtown. If approved, the developments could bring great change to the bustling business district.

A 43-unit apartment complex with affordable housing units mixed in has already been approved on Chestnut Street at the site of an old MVC inspection station. Two more — a mixed-use 66-unit project at the former Ken Smith Motors site on Franklin Avenue; and The Dayton, a 93-unit residential building slated for the Brogan Cadillac property on South Broad Street — are nearing their conclusion.
