  1. Wow, Check out ALL that high density one house on top of the other at Koke's Senior development on Cross St. No wonder the seniors are upset living in such conditions

  2. Yes. The seniors are the biggest chutzpah. They rezoned land from 1 house per 2 acres and built 10 houses per acre ,20 times the density ,and then they complain when long time Lakewood families who are here 25 years before them ,want to build houses and duplexes for their kids.

  3. A little while ago the city held a meeting to address the problem with route 9 congestion. The cost to widen the nine is very steep and other ideas were floated around. Some serious, some not - like proposing a gas hike to cover the cost.

    But the sad truth is that it was all talk to make the big wigs look good, but it was a bunch of lip service and a fat joke. Because of all the things to do, the first is, don't make matters worse. Adding lights adds traffic. How many accidents (fatalities?) are the responsibility of the builders who shirked their duties to help alleviate whatever it is they impacted?

    If more homes are needed, find a better place. Don't build over a one lane highway that is super over crowded and effects the whole ocean county daily. And forget the builders, who grants the permits? The people on the boards. Just wondering, are they receiving any kind of kick back from friends who are builders? Are they themselves in anyway connected to construction companies? Even remotely. Is there anyway that this can be investigated?

    1. They "win" raffles that none of us heard were happening. They "win" free vacations. They get massive mishloach manos.

      Hershel has been saying this for ages: "STOP THE BUILDING".

  4. It would be one thing if the variances would benefit the people who currently live here. However in order to keep the prices high these developments are not being built for lkwders. All my friends who grew up in lkwd are buying in Jackson who can afford lkwd housing prices. So we give variances to allow builders to make a profit that in no way benefits current lkwd residents

    1. Im sirry i disagree. I gave relative whise children bought homes in several new developments and they are all Lakewood residents ,most of them children of long time 30 year Lakewood residents. True many of them are getting the money from grandparents ir relative in NY thst have money ,but the homeowners themselves are all either in yeshiva or formerly in yeshivah bmg .
