R’wood Ibz at Board 5 Meet Wed.

The potential creation of an Industrial Business Zone (IBZ) in Ridgewood will be the focus of a public hearing at Community Board 5’s next meeting this Wednesday night, June 12, in Middle Village.

As announced by District Manager Gary Giordano, the session will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the CNL Room (Third Floor, Door 10) at Christ the King Regional High School, located at 68-02 Metropolitan Ave.

The public hearing will focus on the IBZ proposed by the Ridgewood Local Development Corporation for part of the area known as “South of Myrtle Avenue” (SOMA). The proposed zone includes manufacturing-zoned properties bordered by Cypress Avenue on the north, Irving Avenue on the south, Hancock Street on the west and the Long Island Rail Road’s Bay Ridge branch on the east.
