  1. Ridgewood needs more high density apartment buildings built within a walkable distance to the train station. That is crucial for a vibrant CBD, and a necessity to keep small businesses afloat during these recent hard times.

  3. Perhaps Ridgewood could explore purchasing single family lots of land when they go up for sale, and then rezone them for multi-family use and build high density affordable housing there. There are many large lots in NW Ridgewood where this could work. The buildings could be integrated with existing residential neighborhoods. Really could be quite nice. It would be a win-win for everyone: no new high density housing in the CBD would be needed, and it’s just adding more residential buildings to existing residential areas.

    1. its call spot zoning
      its illegal
      i do have a checkbook.the proponents of this dopey idea might see a house in your neighborhood transformed into a halfway house filled with drug addicts.
      i get a laugh and tax deduction

  4. Ridgewood needs more high density apartment buildings so it can become a $hithole

  6. Wait in till they build housing on Maple Avenue at the old Village Ford property.
    That’s coming real soon.

  7. NJ Transit should consider closing the train station in Ridgewood since it’s not serving enough people.

  8. Market is high.
    Interest rates are still (relatively) low.
    Sell and get out while the getting is good.

  9. “Perhaps Ridgewood could explore purchasing single family lots of land when they go up for sale, and then rezone them for multi-family use and build high density affordable housing there”

    I hope thew first lot the buy for multi-family or high density affordable housing is next to your house.

  11. What’s happening at the Park and Ride on Rt. 17?
    I heard the Village sold it to the DOT??? ParkMobile signs all gone.
    $12 a day made a lot of us take alternate transportation. Another nice job by the brains down at Village Hall.

  12. More affordable housing is needed in Ridgewood. And so many current residents want to see more diversity in Ridgewood, we’ve all seen the many lawns with BLM signs. We know people in Ridgewood truly want more diversity, there not just virtue signaling. 2022 can be the year Ridgewood brings in the much wanted diversity!
