Ridgewood may soon become more industrial.

Community Board (CB) 5’s Zoning, Land Use and Special Economic Development Committees approved the idea of a proposed industrial business zone in the neighborhood at a July 1 meeting.

“For as long as I can remember, that has been the legal use for those businesses in that zone,” said CB5 District Manager Gary Giordano. “I think the sentiment is that this provides that certain areas be set aside for manufacturing.”

At the next CB5 meeting, the committees will recommend their position to the full community board.

“It is obvious to me that the committee members feel that manufacturing is important in both NYC and the U.S., and we should try to foster that,” Giordano said.

The next CB5 meeting is scheduled for July 10 at Christ the King High School at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
