A MEMO FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

We proudly represent one of the finest condominium recreational facilities in all of Northern New Jersey. This is a facility where a “quality of life” is the recurrent theme and the foundation for the basic principles of the Ramapo Ridge Recreation Association. We have dedicated ourselves to a program of growth¸ that above and beyond routine maintenance will continue to place Ramapo Ridge Recreation Association Facility in the forefront of living in a Community Association. Every resident, by virtue of living in Ramapo Ridge, is automatically a member of the Recreation Association, and thereby responsible for its well being. Your care and concern are amply rewarded by the enjoyment of any or all phases of this outstanding facility. We sincerely hope the guidelines outlined herein will serve to illustrate the COMMITMENT you have to make as a member of RRRA, to assure a superior “quality of life” for all members.
