Questions from the public 40 minutes

Closing statements 1/1/2 minutes each

1. During the recent budget proceedings, Ridgewood Water outlined a six year, approximately 40 million dollar capital plan to
update the facility which serves not only Ridgewood but also Glen Rock, Midland Park and Wyckoff. Should the town invest the money
to update the facility or should we consider selling the utility and why?

2. We are looking at potential new development in Ridgewood , in the downtown area and the Central Business District (garage and
multi family housing at several locations). What measures would you propose to minimize disruption to traffic flow, local businesses and home owners and to ensure pedestrian safety?

3. Regarding the Town Garage location on Franklin Avenue and the adjacent municipal lots, the Department of Environmental Protection has cited these properties for remediation due to underground fuel tanks that are leaking diesel and hydraulic fuel into
the surrounding ground water. There has been talk of charging the cleanup to a potential developer or acquiring the garage site by
eminent domain and doing it ourselves. How do we address this problem in the most expedient manner so that no further
contamination occurs and serves the best interest of the village?

  1. No questions about valley?

    The development question does not adress the possibility that these projects are too big for the village. Should we proceed with any or all of these?

  2. As I keep saying it’s a done deal and a bonanza for a new council.

    . You have to SEE THE HIGH HIGH density effect on TRAFFIC BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHAT TO DOOOOOO,

    And then you can add stop signs or a cop to direct traffic like in Hoboken, assholes

  3. Ridgewood Ave will probably need more traffic lights. There will be congestion with all the additional cars for the restaurants and high density housing. How will people get across the street? It is like a game or wack-a-mole already.
