I am gutted that all my heroic efforts to buy a house in Ridgewood are heading to waste. Affordable housing is never affordable and in the end when landlords are incapable of filling their units they will ask the courts to change laws in favor of section 8 and that’s the end of the town and start of the eternal sh!thole living. Speechless as to how powerless current residents are and nobody raises a voice about us. The whole NJ but especially Bergen County is the Fair Share Housing (FSH) playground. They can play with our lives as they wish.

I too was vocal against Valley but now I totally regret it. Valley would have been much better than what’s coming. I live near N Maple Valley property and I get chills down my spine when I picture what that area can become. Valley facilities would have been a miracle but now only God (FSH + Murphy) knows what it can turn into. Depressing.
