  1. Some towns are doing a way with for sale sign’s when selling a home. It is so 1980’s and tacky. And everything is on line anyway.

  2. “including the planting strips between the curbs and sidewalks.”

    Also known as devil’s strips in many parts of the country.

    Don’t know why.

  3. U own the property put up any sign u wish

  4. The last comment is exactly what’s wrong with the village of Ridgewood this is why people are moving out in droves because these people are moving in!

  5. Zero enforcement.
    RW is becoming Bergen County’s punch line…

  6. They don’t allow For Sale signs in my vacation house community. So much nicer!

  7. Several Kaufman signs spotted that are posted in violation of this rule.

  8. Lots of Vag signs posted in violation of code at corner of N Pleasant and East Glen across from the cemetery.

  9. My kids call the area from YMCA to Village Hall Bidenville.
    No shortage of BLM\Biden-Harris and Gay Pride flags in that area last election. I’m sure will be Murphy signs in every lawn!

  10. Bidenville also full of “Hate has No Home Here” signs. So soy.

  11. I believe Ridgewood had an ordinance that prohibited Real Estate signs in the 90’s
