Ridgewood November 25, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 7 Two houses on Hillcrest will again be leased by John Koster The Ridgewood Village Council has again voted to lease the two houses that are part of the former Habernickel Horse Farm, now a municipal park, for one year with the option of a second year’s lease on each house. The lease is by bid. The house at 1037 Hillcrest Road may be bid for possible lease at a minimum of $4,574 a month, with the second year’s lease optional. The bid permits occupancy by a tenant and his or her immediate family. The house will be available on Feb. 11, 2010. The second house at 1057 Hillcrest Road will become available on June 15, 2010, and the minimum bid on the lease is $3,969. The highest responsible bidder will obtain the lease, which may also be renewed for a second year. The Habernickel Horse Farm, the first parcel of land purchased with the halfcent set-aside for every $100 of assessed valuation – and with bonded money – once housed personal and boarded horses that could be seen grazing and romping beside Hillcrest Avenue on the approach to the Waldwick border. The purchase of the land touched off lengthy hearings in which leaders of the recreational sports programs advocated as many as five athletic fields on the 10-acre site, while neighbors and other residents wanted to see the site kept in as natural a condition as possible. A Holiday Bazaar will be sponsored by The Preserve Graydon Coalition on Sunday, Nov. 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at a private home at 250 North Maple Avenue, Ridgewood. More than 20 presenters will offer unique pottery, wreaths by a landscape designer, handmade jewelry, chocolates, small watercolors by Nancy Petrie, note cards of Graydon ice skating scenes by Ridgewood artist Dorothy Warren, Christmas ornaments, candles and candle holders, exquisite origami, handmade American Girl doll clothes, Cellular Labs Skin Care, and Pampered Chef items from the co-owner of the Ridgewood Culinary Studio. Current plans call for two overlapping fields on the flat pasture near the road, with the sloping area set aside for walking and ADA-accessible nature trails. Bazaar to benefit Preserve Graydon Other sellers will show their whimsical sculpture, framed photos of Ridgewood’s downtown clock in all seasons, homemade cookies, and more. Short sessions by a licensed Feldenkrais practitioner for achy necks and stiff shoulders will be available. Coalition car magnets and lawn signs will be available for the first time. Admission is free. A portion of all proceeds from this event will benefit The Preserve Graydon Coalition, a nonprofit grassroots group working to save Ridgewood’s Graydon Pool.
