Hearing set for May 3 to work out the issues

 Judge denies appeal to keep Bais Horaah open while issues are worked out.  -NEWS12NJ.com  reports " A New Jersey judge has denied several business owners access to their building while issues with the certificates of occupancy are worked out. The building, located on Madison Avenue, houses a Federal Savings Bank, the Bais Hora'ah rabbinical school and the Lakewood Conference Center. However, according to the township’s code enforcement officer, the building is only approved to have the bank inside.
The Bais Hora'ah rabbinical school reportedly holds daily prayer services inside the building, and township officials say the building is not zoned for that. Officials also say there is not enough parking to handle three different businesses. Code enforcement agents were forced to board up the building four times because the tenants kept prying off the boards and going back inside. Property owner David Gluck filed a request that would allow the tenants to stay while the issues are worked out. His attorney argued that places of worship are allowed in downtown Lakewood. But state Superior Court Assignment Judge Marlene Lynch Ford denied the request. A full hearing will be held on May 3 to work out the issues."

    Their assertion that the building is now a place of worship is ridiculous. unless what you worship is money. places of worship with all those uses are also required parking if they will cause worshippers to park in municipal lots during business hours.

    There is once again parking in the downtown area. proof positive that the illegally built bais horaah caused all the parking problems for over a year. There is no way that they can figure out how much loss they have caused businesses adjacent to them. Hopefully customers that have stopped coming to these businesses will now return. Once again, there is only one solution for the Bais Horaahs future existence. That is a parking lot of their own. As it stands now there is no area large enough to provide the spaces needed for the multitude of uses that have been added to that building in the last year. Local businesses have been more than patient and tried to compromise, only to be met with added malfeasance and inconsideration from ... and his cohorts.Mr.. does not represent any torah institution. ..There is no compromise, there are no exceptions any longer. The damage was done, and now has been removed. We look forward to seeing the building used by a single entity in which 17 parking spaces will be sufficient. If the building must remain two thirds empty in order for the downtown businesses to function, so be it.

      You are from out of town. Had no problem parking and have decided that my sole motivation is I am a selfish jealous person. So you got the whole story figured out even though you know nothing about the real issues. Sounds legitimate.
      As for any of the other businesses causing parking congestion. They are all in the B2 zone. That is exactly why a building that is not in the B2 zone is required parking. There is already an issue and any additional congestion , especially such a constant daily one, is a problem. The owners want to ask the planning board for approvals. If you want to know all the details, you're invited to come to the meeting.unless you are out of town of course.

    2. The mere fact that u are not from lakewood shows that you are clueless about lakewood. Keep your 2 cents and use it to buy your next bagel .

    3. Following the local construction/safety codes is a chillul hashem? Harold is right, thank you very much. He is a role model for our youth!

    4. Yes, I am from out of town and yes I believe your motivation is pure selfishness plus שנאת ישראל. Can you prove otherwise? Can you prove that they are causing the parking lots to fill up. It seems other posters are saying otherwise. And the many times I visited Lakewood and used that parking lot, I never had a problem. It's no wonder you have such a rotten name in town.

      Wow . you seem to know me and my motivations so well having never met me or discussed the issue. Perhaps you visited here Bain hazmanim. Perhaps you are the sonai yisroel for judging someone else wrongly without knowing the facts. If you are from out of town of what concern is Lakewood politics to you? Do you have another motivation? What town are you from? Maybe I can put my two cents into your local politics? The fact that there is a choice of open parking spaces most of the day in places where no spots were available is proof. The fact that people were seen parking in these lots and going into Bais Horaah all these months is also proof. I am glad that you found a lucky spot and enjoyed your bagel on your visit to Lakewood. I would not trust you to do a scientific study based on your experience.

      Why don't you write your name and th town you are from? Otherwise I will assume you are one of the selfish people trying to benefit from ruining other people's businesses .

    7. Don't worry about my name and where I live. You should worry about the chillul Hashem you caused and continue to cause. Did you get a heter from a Rov to damage others? Can you prove to anybody that they caused a lack of parking? And your reputation and name tells me everything I need to know about your intentions. To bad you didn't learn how to get along with others.

    8. If Harold is performing a chillul hashem to you, then you need to study more and troll less, because that idea is the height of ignorance.

  5. BP's 50 employees also take away many of the parking spaces in the Municipal lot.We must begin enforcing the 2 hour parking limit.

    Meir Lichtenstein's 2nd street tenants also take away downtown public parking.

    Monmouth Ave by 3rd street, the school takes away downtown parking.

  6. Nothing changed, parking situation is the same, and that's why the township wants to purchase additional lots for parking. A few guys learning in that kollel, which has a policy which forbids parking in downtown, had no effect on the parking.

  7. No parking today, all that we accomplished was messing up the sedorim of a bunch of innocent guys caught in between the egos.
