Reader says , “So, you raised your children here, got the benefit of an excellent education, a town without metal detectors or gang violence”

” So, you raised your children here, got the benefit of an excellent education, a town without metal detectors or gang violence. I assume they got into good colleges. You are living in a house worth probably assessed over $1.6 million. Your taxes are about 60% of what you would pay in most of Essex County. If you work in New York City, there are few towns that provide a better lifestyle with a shorter commute than Ridgewood. We have a great downtown (true, maybe not as good as it used to be, but neither is anywhere else, and I agree that the high parking fees are ridiculous). As for the leaders, they have been elected for issue-specific reasons, but that is the responsibility of the voters (and especially the NON-voters). Ridgewood isn’t perfect by any means, but it isn’t nearly as bad as everyone is making it out to be. But if you disagree, lots of people are ready to buy your house, which would undoubtedly be priced higher than most surrounding towns, and marketed highlighting Ridgewood’s many amenities and qualities. I hope James’ potential purchasers don’t read his blog entry! “

Reader asks Will the Village Prorate Parking Fees for Tag Holders

” Purchasers of premium parking hang tags allowing for parking in the train station lot should be refunded a portion of their purchase price. I paid for 12 months of parking. Not 8-9 months. This project was surely known about when the tags went on sale in December 2018. Nothing was said to purchasers about this 1/4 year project which materially diminishes the value of a station parking tag (whose purchase price which went from $1000 to $1300 in the space of a year). “
