Ridgewood NJ, looking like a bunch of pathetic cry babies ,(TONIGHT)Wednesday’s Village of Ridgewood council meeting will feature discussions on the appointment of a new village historian, a topic triggered by a letter from current historians Peggy Norris and Joe Suplicki to Katherine Marcopul of the State Historic Preservation Office.
The letter, sent last week, protests the proposed development plan for the Schedler property, approved by the village council in March. Suplicki, who also chairs the village’s Historic Preservation Commission, and Norris oppose the plan, which involves extensive tree clearing on the 7-acre site to make way for larger artificial turf sports fields. In their letter, the historians advocate for reconsideration of a 2018 council-approved plan, suggesting a less impactful child-size grass playing field with fewer trees removed.
