Ridgewood Public Library Strategic Planning Survey


The Ridgewood Public Library is updating its Strategic Plan, which is required every 5 years. Part of the process is asking residents to complete a survey regarding many facets of the library, such as how they use the library and feedback on its programming and facilities.


The survey is now live and will be active until Friday, September 23, 2022. Upon completing the survey, there is an option to give your email address or phone number to be entered into a raffle to receive a $100 gift card. Although the survey only takes a few minutes, your participation will have a positive impact for many years to come!


Please use the link provided and be sure to have all members of your household complete the survey. You can also help by sharing this information with others by email or posting on social media.


Thank you on behalf of the Ridgewood Public Library, the Library Board of Trustees, and the Library Strategic Planning Committee



Ridgewood Master Plan Draft and Public Hearing


The Ridgewood Planning Board and Master Plan Committee are pleased to present the Village of Ridgewood’s Master Plan draft for preliminary public review and feedback. A Public Hearing for adoption of the Master Plan, by the Planning Board, is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at 7:30 p.m., in the Court Room of Village Hall.


Although New Jersey requires only four elements in a municipal Master Plan, the Master Plan Committee, working with Heyer-Gruel, made a commitment to ensuring all elements were considered, updated as necessary, and included where relevant.


Community and stakeholder input gathered through the Visioning process provided the foundation for the Master Plan document.


The end result will be that Ridgewood's adopted Master Plan will be a robust, comprehensive, and dynamic document that reflects our community's collective vision for the future.


The hope is that everyone will have an opportunity to review this amazing document before the September 20, 2022 Planning Board Public Hearing.
