PUSH BACK DAILY RIDGEWOOD CONSTRUCTION

104 Signatures Goal: 250

Most doctors recommend sleeping 8 hours a night to function properly. The college lifestyle is characterized by working late into the night, and going to bed much later than one should. Therefore, with the current Ridgewood construction beginning daily at 6AM, a healthy Ziv or Village resident must be asleep by 10PM to get a normal nights worth of sleep. We all know that this is completely unrealistic and ridiculous for anybody to be in bed by 10PM considering our heavy workloads and our social/extracurricular activities. For this reason, we are taking the necessary steps in order to make sure that a solution is found. At this point, the construction is in its beginning stages, we will be faced with much more noise pollution as construction advances. The impending arrival of cement mixers, cranes, power-saws, backhoes, etc will become will significantly raise the noise-level. That is why we are requesting that the construction starting-time is delayed from 6AM to a more reasonable hour. We and our families pay over $50,000 per year, and we feel that the least we can be offered is a good-night\'s sleep.
