The Village Council created the Central Business District Advisory Committee (CBDAC) in 2016 to work with the Village Council, business owners and residents to evaluate and initiate enhancements to the CBD. This includes improvements to traffic flow and patterns, parking, pedestrian safety and the balance of commercial uses, while maintaining historic and aesthetic elements to create a more desirable, vibrant and memorable destination for all visitors.
The CBDAC is composed of thirteen members: a Village Council liaison; a Chamber of Commerce representative; a Ridgewood Guild representative; three business owners; five residents (one of whom is a member of the Citizens Safety Advisory Committee); the Chief of Police or designee; and the Village Engineer or designee. Resident and business members serve for renewable two-year terms.
