  1. By a 5-0 vote, VC members accepted David Bolger’s gift.

  2. pj – you left out the Resolution 08-103, which got a 5-0 vote 🙂

  3. Permission was given: No RFP,as is required by everyone else, no planning board,no zoning board (the building is not zoned for business) no DEP, just money.

    The library is making plans to expand as we speak; they have it in their 10 year plan. They hired a “space planner” and have spent a lot on p.r. and it shows. This money will help them.

    The plan is to get rid of the hill in front of the building. To add parking spaces. But there will be a few trees planted so it doesn’t matter, does it.

  4. Speaking of overbuidling, is anyone concerned by the proposed amendment of our building height ordinance? The new law will allow houses and garages to be taller and bigger. Also, it allows for construction to be placed on built up mounds, so long as the build up extends six feet from the structure. In other words, it looks like you can add to the base of a house, an office building or a water tower, so long as you build a retaining wall around the structure.

    I thought we were moving away from, rather than towards, the grotesgue overbuilding of mcmansions and garage-mahala’s?

    Ordinance 3120 is being discussed at next planning meeting. See Ridgewood News from April 11.
