FYI: The idiom “jumping the shark” or “jump the shark” is a pejorative that is used to argue that a creative work or entity has reached a point in which it has exhausted its core intent and is introducing new ideas that are discordant with, or an over-exaggeration of, its original purpose .

Ridgewood NJ, the Village Council clearly jumped the shark at the Wednesday night council meeting, The reality is council members Winograd and Weitz vowed 9 months ago that they were all for implementing the 2017 plan.
Councilmembers Vagianos, Winograd, Weitz deleted the 2017 agreement and resolution on Schedler and voted for their own plan.
Councilmember Winograd the tree candidate and now she’s all in for cutting close to 200 trees. Her response? These are not the “right” kinda trees. That’s actually how she runs her Ridgewood Moms and Dads without free speech page.
The original plan was approved by the New Jersey’s Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), in which the Village accepted grant money .New Jersey’s Historic Preservation Office, located within the Department of Environmental Protection, brings expertise in a variety of fields essential to preserving historic resources.
They count among their staff historians, researchers, planners, architectural historians, architects, engineers, & archaeologists. They respond to more than 40,000 calls yearly from people working to preserve, protect and promote New Jersey’s historic resources.
The new plan now goes back to SHPO for approval. It will most likely go to the courts given the turf’s risk to water wells (forever chemicals)in your drinking water.
Councilman Weitz suggested that the Village has the right to do anything they want with their property without State involvement. He is an attorney. He should know better. Is he really suggesting that we’re going to sue the State of New Jersey?
The county wants nothing to do with the project. The Village of Ridgewood already received notification from the County of Bergen that the Villages’ application for grant funds to purchase 510 West Saddle River Road was been denied .
And to top it off the same council members who attacked the previous mayor of over transparency and open communication voted to limit public participation and appeared to promote bullying during the council meeting.
