Visioning for Ridgewood's Next Master Plan

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, the Village of Ridgewood will officially launch Our Village, Our Future, a Village-wide visioning process that will inform the creation of its next Master Plan. The website will serve as the main online portal for Our Village, Our Future.

The primary goal of Our Village, Our Future is to implement a community visioning process that reaches out to a broad range of Ridgewood residents and other stakeholders (e.g., businesses, institutions, etc.) and encourages them to think about and discuss the values, principles, goals, and priorities that should shape the future of Ridgewood. This community visioning process represents the one of the first steps toward creating a new Master Plan for the Village.

The final outcome/product of this visioning process will be a Vision Plan. This document will summarize the community engagement process and synthesize the results of this process in terms of identifying and explaining the values, principles, goals, and priorities that should shape the Village’s next Master Plan.

It is anticipated that the visioning process will take approximately 6 to 7 months to complete. The process of creating the next Master Plan will start after the visioning process is complete.

Residents and other interested parties can visit to learn more details about Our Village, Our Future and are encouraged to sign up to receive e-mail updates.
