Reader says, “The 9/11 terrorists were able to live in neighborhoods and hatch their dangerous plots because they knew neighbors ignore neighbors”

"Our Gang" aka The Little Rascals"

“The fact that neighbors are no longer neighborly, that we cannot knock on a neighbor’s door; that we do not know our neighbors is very different from many years ago when neighborhoods were friendly; times have indeed changed. The situation now is dangerous. The 9/11 terrorists were able to live in neighborhoods and hatch their dangerous plots because they knew neighbors ignore neighbors.

Also, neighbors not knowing and being unfriendly to neighbors, increases social isolation; very dangerous because teens more likely to take drugs and alcohol when they alienated, and they will feel alienated in an unfriendly neighborhood.

The above comment about hate is what America does not need. Again it stems from alienation. The comment is an example of social media bullying”

” It’s amazing that the police are stopping kids from playing music in the garage before the 10 PM rule and law. And yet they are not issuing a summons for cars that are parked overnight, very interesting someone’s not doing their job right. Who’s running this town what political party. Well we can say it’s getting sickening. The politics in the village of Ridgewood is running the town. What a disgrace. What a free-for-all. Can you imagine in five more years what’s going to happen to the village of Ridgewood my god no wonder people are selling their homes and moving down south. We are not the leaders anymore we are followers. I just don’t know who we are following? We are in a mess. “

Village of Ridgewood Visioning Survey and Results

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, the Village of Ridgewood Visioning survey will end on May 5th, 2019. The survey will provide the foundation for our new Master Plan and it is incredibly important for Village residents to add their voice and vision by taking just ten minutes to complete the survey. The Master Plan is a guidance document that sets goals, policies, and priorities for investing in the physical, economic, environmental, and social future of a community. A master plan can provide direction in terms of investing in transportation improvements and public facilities, changing zoning regulations, protecting ecologically-sensitive areas, or becoming more environmentally sustainable. Concept plans and other visuals within a master plan can demonstrate ideas and hoped-for outcomes. Importantly, the master plan is the basis for a municipality’s zoning regulations.
THE FUTURE OF RIDGEWOOD NEEDS YOUR VISION AND YOUR VOICE! Visit before May 5 and please share this important information with fellow residents.

(must complete before May 5)

Here are the Results of the Visioning Questionnaire

More than 2,000 people completed the Visioning Questionnairewhich was launched in October 2018 and closed in May 2019. We spent the summer analyzing the data, which includes reading through the thousands of responses to the short answer questions. We summarized the key findings into a presentation that can be downloaded by clicking on the link below. We also compiled and analyzed the information from the Map Your Vision Tool and prepared a similar presentation that summarizes its results.

More details on the workshops to come shortly after you return from the Labor Day Holiday!
