Village should say ‘no thanks’ to high-density housing
Francis H. Schott

To the editor:

Over the past decade, Ridgewood has made great progress in improving our citizens’ quality of life. Our schools have been enlarged and modernized to make them adequate for our 5,800 students, a number that has steadily grown over the decade. Our recreational space, although still below state and federal standards, has been substantially augmented for the first time in generations by the acquisition and development of Habernickel Park and the purchase of the Schedler property as well as the enlargement of Citizens Park.

Admittedly we are still struggling with parking and traffic problems downtown, but the positives outweigh the negatives of the early 21st Century by a wide margin.

  1. Members of this Council doesn’t care about this information. They are here to put their own stamp on Rdgewood good or bad. We voted for them based on their beliefs Only history will show if we did the right thing..

  2. Only housing for seniors should be built and on a limited basis.

  3. Yes #2 but I think there may be something in the law that you can’t make it all senior housing but that would solve a lot of problems.

  4. The writer asks the question that I want answered . . . what is the net benefit to Ridgewood (after the “facts” the developers presenting are independently substantiated and/or adjusted to reality).

    And Ron Simoncini . . . take your quiz and shove it.
