Founded in 2006 in response to residents’ concern about overdevelopment and its impact on Wyckoff’s quality of life, members of the Friends of Wyckoff have gathered nearly 4,000 signatures on petitions concerning quality-of-life issues.
Join us so that we can continue to improve the quality of life in Wyckoff and protect our local environment. Friends members receive our quarterly newsletter by mail.
Among our accomplishments are:
Friends of Wyckoff is pleased to have had a significant role in initiating the Open Space Trust Fund, which significantly helped in the purchase of Russell Farms. We are also happy that public officials from both the county and state levels supported this purchase for Wyckoff.
The Open Space Trust Fund gives Wyckoff homeowners control over our quality of life and our property values. These five acres will now not only become a park, it will represent the early farming life so prevalent in Wyckoff for 200 years. It’s nice to know that this land will now be preserved for Wyckoff’s future generations.
Thanks to everyone who signed the petition in 2006 to put the Open space question on the November ballot and again in 2011 to renew the Open Space Trust Fund. This purchase would not have happened were it not for your support.
