Give Input for Ridgewood's New Master Plan

Visit: www.visionridgewood.org

We live in a special community and we want our new Master Plan to reflect the priorities of everyone who lives here. Please think about where you want to live as you get older and let the Visioning Process know what you want our town to look like. As we review and rewrite our Master Plan we must identify the key elements that will support and retain our older population.

Two questions are important:
1. Does Ridgewood have a supply of housing that is both affordable to older adults and consistent with their needs?
2. Does it have the necessary policies, plans and programs in place that will provide a range of housing options into the future?
