Happy New Year

Dear Friends at the Ridgewood blog ,

There are several projects and services I want to share with you…

Traffic Alert – Starting Monday, January 16th PSEG will be working on Broad Street to upgrade the service in Ridgewood.Construction activities include the installation of manholes and underground pipe.The work will be done from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondaythrough Friday for approximately 3 months, weather permitting.Paving will take place after the 3-month construction period.Police will monitor the traffic but please try to plan alternate routes in order to avoid the traffic congestion in the construction area.

2017 Annual Parking Permits – Annual Resident, Non-resident and CBD employee parking permits are available for purchase at Village Hall.Driver’s License and car registration are required to apply for all parking permits.The Annual Parking Permits for residents which are available, cost $750 annually, and it allows residents to park in the Chestnut, North Walnut, and Cottage parking lots.We have reached our current capacity for the $1,000 Premium Permits, but you may call the Receptionist at 201-670-5500 ext. 200 to put your name on a waiting list for these permits, as new commuter parking spaces become available.

New in 2017 – “Shopper/Diner” parking spots are available in the Hudson, Prospect and Chestnut Lots.These parking spaces are marked with white signs and arrows, and commuter parking will not be allowed in these parking spaces.

Leaves…Our annual leaf collection is finished and we ask that from this time forward, please do not put any leaves in the street. Branches, plants and leaves can be brought to the Recycling Center or placed in paper biodegradable bags.All yard waste must be brought to the recycling center or held until yard waste pickup begins in the spring.Please consult your 2017 calendar for spring pickup schedules.

Christmas trees are still being picked up on both the east and west side of the Village each week.Please place them on your curb, and not into the street.

Snow and Ice Reminder – When there is snow and ice forecast, please assist us by placing your garbage cans at the end of your driveway, by the curb, but not in the street.This will ensure that our employees are able to safely pick up your solid waste. Additionally please remember to clear your sidewalks within 24 hours of snowfall.This is especially important on school walking routes, but is required in all residential zones.

In observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, Village Hall and The Stable offices will be closed on Monday, January 16th There will be no sanitation or recycling pick up on that day.

Thank you for your cooperation,
