Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Mayor Susan Knudsen has publicly announced that a development plan for Schedler Park recently sent to the State of NJ’s Historic Preservation Office for approval, was submitted to the State without the review or approval of Ridgewood’s Village Council.
Specifically, the development plan included the following “extra” components, none of which were either discussed or approved by Mayor Knudsen or any other member of Ridgewood’s Village Council:
Several pickleball courts
Patio surface approximately three (3) times larger than what Council members did approve
Thus far neither Mayor Knudson nor Village Manager Heather Mailander have identified the employee(s) responsible for the bogus submission. Nor has there been any public mention of disciplinary action taken, if any.
A corrected development plan was recently submitted to the State and has reportedly already received approval.
