RIDGEWOOD, NJ(CBSNewYork) — A proposal to expand a New Jersey hospital has been voted down.

Ridgewood residents cheered as a planning board voted against Valley Hospital’s proposal to nearly double in size, CBS 2 reported.

Resident called the planning board process ‘one sided,’ reported.

The project would have included building demolitions, the construction of a 94-foot-tall building, and a large parking garage, the report said.

The hospital has been pushing for years to expand, saying that it needs to keep current in a competitive environment.

Residents complained about the traffic, noise, and air quality that the 6 year construction project would have meant.
