After recent concerns were raised about a proposed accessibility ramp currently leading to “nowhere,” Ridgewood Council members will continue their ongoing discussion on the future of the former horse barn at the Irene Habernickel Family Park.

Employees at Village Hall are hoping to proceed with an ADA-compliant ramp project that would lead from the municipal park’s parking lot area to the bi-level structure that was once used as a horse stable. A Community Development Block Grant has already been earmarked to fund up to $60,000 of the ramp construction.

Recreation and engineering officials are now petitioning the village’s governing body to approve an estimated $8,000 feasibility study to determine the usefulness of the barn. They previously proposed converting the building into a restroom facility.
