Judging from the overwhelming lack of response, I guess we're kind of on our own in town. A bit disappointing.

Ive been in town for approximately 1.5 years, we are a young couple, 1st house. It is mostly quiet. And from what I have seen the town is becoming home to a new generation of dual income families. The Taxes are reasonable, and the progression of town has moved at a considerable pace considering our tax $ to others in passaic, essex, morris and bergen. There is a lot of talk about revitalizing the downtown district. using the $$ from the sale of the reservior, as well as many local and state grants. Easiest way to plug into the community is to chat with many of the friendly staff, and passers by in the municipal building and recycling center. Everyone there seems to be up for conversation each of the few times I have visited.

good luck and welcome to town

The Township is a nice place it's rated #1 in Bergen County by NJ Monthly Magazine. Town Council Meetings are every other Thurs night at 8pm at Town Hall on Corporate Drive. The next on is May 15th.

The Town has a web site mahwahtwp.org with lots of information you might want to check out.

Tomorrow is election day in Mahwah for Mayor and 3 Council persons. Remember to vote if you are registered.

Right now the new leadership is proving they are up to it. After about 15 years of incometence on both sides the new manager Scott Heck is using his contractor bussiness background to run the DPW. Like in the sixties and seventies the DPW now does all the drain, road, and maintenance work which is saving millions in engineer and outside contracting fees. Ringwood is sarounded by park lands with many lakes for great fishing, the hunting is real good, it's rough country and not vehicle friendly so a good part of the experience is learning the trails and where the prey is holed up. Turkey are abundant, grouse and pheasent declined after the return of the coyote, fox and falconry. Deer are there but the trophies are few and far between. If thats not your bag then hiking in the spring and fall are great, summers buggy, and cross country skiing is great in the winter if the snow cooperates. As for citified stuff the Ringwood and Skylands manors have arts programs and some intense gardening. The picnic sites along Sterling Brook in Ringwood Manor are remote and when the waters up in the spring and fall it can, with some imagination, remind you of Vermont or Colorado without the lengthy commute.
