Ridgewood NJ, are the supporters of Healthbarn concerned if the lease doesn’t get renewed Stacey Antine will no longer do good for Ridgewood through her Foundation? That is not what the lease is about it is about Healthbarn USA a private for profit business. Healthbarn foundation is headquartered in Lyndhust. So why does every thing written about Healthbarn talk mainly about the foundation not about her classes going on in the park?
Healthbarn USA couldn’t possibly bring in $50,000 to the Village I am assuming that is including her rent. Rent which would of been paid by a private tenant too. Only a small number of classes are considered partnership don’t let the free advertising on the Parks & Rec website fool you that they are all partnership. The amount of money the village spends on up keep of the old home costs tax payers a lot of money during the year.
A business shouldn’t be allowed to operate out of a neighborhood park it isn’t fair for the homes in the neighborhood. This business belongs in a business area not in a park.
