Ridgewood NJ, Deeply Rooted. This is my new venture, consisting of pop up plant shops, until I can find my brick and mortar retail location and retire in a year or two!

Additionally, if any of you have a business location or know of one that would like to host a pop up, I’m looking to do about one a month. So far August and October are booked, in Ridgewood locations. I’m mostly interested in Glen Rock, Ho-ho-kus, Allendale, etc, but I’m open to other towns!

Reader says Paul Vagianos (HE) Feels “HE” is above the LAW

itsgreektome2_theridgewoodblog

Paul Vagianos (D) A Democrat running mate for State Assemble in the 40th District that’s who Paul is refereed to in the article….

Paul Vagianos
So this is the type of candidate that wants to run local Government, A individual who can not follow Building dept, Codes, Village Zoning/Planing Codes, Village Ordinances and State laws of set back. HE Feels “HE” is above the LAW.
This is Who has a Mayor and Counsel scared of him! Because of POWER! What about the residence and other Proprietors that are in the Village, they have to follow Zoning/Planing and local building codes! State and county ordinances and set back laws.
I just spoke with the Building inspector Carlos this morning and he stated there was never a permit issued for this wall or nor was there ever any inspections and refereed me to the Zoning/Planing office. I spoke to a nice women who answered the phone, I had asked for the Zoning officer but she stated she could help me she was very knowledgeable about the whole chain of events of this wall. It was a wood wall prior and they removed the wood and built what is there today not sure as to the date, No prior approvals and the Owner was sued by the Village of Ridgewood. They eventually applied to the Planing/Zoning board and was passed by the board (quote from Women in Planing/Zoning dept., I don’t quite know how that was approved).
So there have never been any required permits or inspections and they were never asked to remove the wall. Why is this!
If someone were to be hurt by the wall coming down or a car were to hit it I SEE A MAJOR LAWSUIT HERE, an unsafe non permitted structure!

You be the JUDGE……I see unfair politics at its worst,,,,people afraid of people with power.
