This Village Voices segment focuses on a group discussion that took place in April, with a follow-up discussion held in May. The discussion was initiated by a resident who has lived in Ridgewood for many years. We provided a toolkit that contains guidance on organizing and facilitating the discussion and instructions for reporting back the results. The resident convened a group of four other long-time residents, all of whom have been active at one time or another in various civic organizations and/or Village matters.
Since the start of the visioning process, we’ve sought assistance from residents with a range of promotional and engagement activities. To encourage more conversations among neighbors and friends about the future of Ridgewood, one way to get involved is to hold a group discussion on this topic.
