  1. Fix the roads….

    1. Roads Are a complete Disgrace including State roads look at Linwood from walthery down to Route 17

      A complete bombed out minefield for cars and bicyclists or motor bikes

      Observe drivers driving down center line to save tires and suspension.

      No excuses state road or not

    2. Roads Are a complete Disgrace including State roads look at Linwood from Walthery avenue down to Route 17

      A complete bombed out minefield for cars and bicyclists or motor bikes

      Observe drivers driving down center line to save tires and suspension.

      No excuses state road or not

  2. I agree with the posters about the roads – They are AWFUL!!! All over not just Ridgewood. And yes, I find myself trying to dodge all the horrible patchwork and holes (my car is old and cannot afford costly repairs at this point)

  3. Every day and in every way, Ridgewood is becoming less and less special…

    Sad.

    1. hopefully the higher interest rates will keep the marginal people out.
      this used to be a respectful place but as has been demonstrated, you can take the Hillbillies out of the holla, but you cant take the hillbilly out of the person.

  4. More money spent on the Schedler house? For what? And most importantly, Why? They should not spend a cent more until they have a firm contract for its use! What happened to the playground, the walking trails, the small field? Use the money in ways that it can be enjoyed by the residents of Ridgewood! Not just something that will make the Mayor and her cronies happy and absolutely no one else in the entire Village. The house appears to be a bottomless pit and it has been nothing but a tremendous waste of taxpayers’ money. Stop it already!

  5. Just think how many local streets could have ben repaired with that totally wasted money!

  6. What about the pickle ball. This place is amazing with the money we are dumping into this site. The dirt hilll looks like a dirty site. Litter all by the side of rt 17.

  7. How about cleaning up the village own sites like on just not straight, they are filthy and in need of Major repair work.

  8. PSEG has dug up the town installing new gas pipes and service to homes.
    The water co replaced the lead service lines in my area
    I was told its best to wait 5-6 months for these excavated areas to settle before repaving to avoid future settling of the road bed.
    Lets hope the town can coordinate with PSEG to do it right, pave curb -to- curb since paving only one side never properly adheres to existing pavement, thus creating a future fissure in the middle of the road.

    1. You’re missing the important point.

      Those tire wide ruts provide GUIDANCE for those driving in the dark or under the influence. Sort of like autopilot for all.

    2. The scar on North Pleasant has certainly settled.

      I drive on the other side of the road to avoid getting stuck in the rut.
