Ridgewood appoints members to planning, zoning boards


JULY 7, 2015    LAST UPDATED: TUESDAY, JULY 7, 2015, 9:42 AM

The Ridgewood Village Council held a special public meeting last month in order to make appointments to the village’s Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment as well as hire a new labor attorney and special labor counsel.

The Planning Board will see plenty of familiar faces return as all five appointees served during the previous year. Mayor Paul Aronsohn, board member Nancy Bigos and Councilwoman Susan Knudsen each return for a one-year term as Class I, II and III members respectively.

Number two alternate Khidir Abdalla was given a two-year term and Chairman Charles Nalbantian will keep his seat for the next four years as a Class IV member.

On the Board of Adjustment, current Chairman Joel Torielli and Vice Chairman Hans-Jurgen Lehmann each received four-year terms to continue in their respective roles.

Jennie Wilson was promoted from alternate to full board member on a two-year term while Sergio Alegre was bumped up to the position of first alternate on a two-year term.

Ines Bunza joins the Board of Adjustment as the second alternate on a one-year term.

Appointments for these two boards will be effective at their respective reorganization meetings.

Ridgewood zoning board continues discussion on temporary cell tower

Ridgewood zoning board continues discussion on temporary cell tower

TUESDAY MARCH 4, 2014, 12:36 PM

Discussion continued at the Feb. 25 zoning board meeting on a proposal to place a temporary cell tower at the Exxon Mobil station on Route 17.

Several months ago, AT&T put the tower at the station without zoning board approval. The board was unaware of the tower until they were notified by Albin Court resident Diane Haderthauer at a meeting earlier this year. The board then engaged in discussions with AT&T, and on Feb. 11, the company removed the tower.

A day before, the company submitted an application to the zoning board to place a temporary tower at the same site, Zoning Officer Tony Merlino said. The process has begun to find them a spot on the zoning board’s agenda for a hearing, he said.

According to Merlino, though the application has been submitted, it is not yet complete.

The board’s counsel, Bruce Whitaker, noted that the board could stipulate that the company could leave the tower in that location for “so many months,” and if it’s still there “after X number of months… they would get fined.”
