Township looks to restrict yeshivas and non profits from industrial park

First they gave us the genius Blue claws deal. Now to bring revenue to the tax base the LIC and township committee are only letting businesses in the park that are commerce in nature. So now schools will be forced to buy land in residential areas eating up more income producing land that would pay taxes.

  1. Time to investigate all the back door deals that are going on. 25 million for a stadium that has not returned a profit. Now airports hangers that taxes are paying for so a few wealthy connected individuals can park their private planes after they were kicked out of Monmouth airport. The yeshiva and non profits generate more jobs and revenue than the taxpayer sponsored projects for the wealthy. Kick Em all out.

    WHAT AN EXCELLENT IDEA. Industrial park taxes are pure profit. schools replacing housing is not as damaging to our tax base as replacing a business district. Many businesses would have to move for liability reasons if they are near schools. This plan will save our valuable Industrial park. Schools can be built on raw land or perhaps they can sell the airport to become a school zone. Or we can start slowing building and growth. Whatever the solution might be, this is a step in the right direction. Thank you Mr. Reinman for proposing and pushing for this.

  3. When did businesses come running to industrial park, Cedarbridge couldn't bring tenants, UPS may leave because of traffic. And why is money from blue claws deal going to the LIC to build airport hangers? How is that helping the tax base?

  4. This is long overdue. Every school that buys a property in the Industrial Park takes a minimum of $40,000 per year of pure profit off the tax roles.

    Property zoned industrial needs to stay Industrial or taxes will continue to skyrocket. There is a reason why every city has zoned industrial/commercial property.

    And despite a comment on here, there is strong demand for warehouse space in Lakewood.

    2. If you were a business why would you want to move into an industrial park in which a school with 1,000 kids could open tomorrow next door

  6. For years there were many empty warehouses in industrial park no new buisnesses were moving in and more were moving out. Yeshivos and mosdos started buying there as it was considered cheap real estate. As Lakewood grew demand for space increased but more so due to the hundreds who sell on Amazon and those who deal in closeouts. As FBA is now more common demand for space has plateaued. Cedarbridge was suppose to have big businesses that didnt happen. There are still empty buildings sitting around.

  7. While we're on the topic of empty, The "L" Lakewood shuttle buses run EMPTY every time i check.
    Who is paying for that & who is making the money from it?

    1. It was paid for by a one time grant. Once that money runs out they will try to have it paid by local taxes hoping it becomes a asset and necessity to the town. The Dollar per ride does not cover anything. Revenue from the ADS go to the bus company owner not to the township.

  9. Giving tax abatement's that will bring in one million over 39 years is not helpful to the tax payers. The Lakewood tax payers have been ripped off and taken advantage of by politicians who are beholden to big business.

  10. Its time to change our form of Govt there are too many commissions and boards run by unelected officials with personal interests and no accountability to the tax payers. They control and spend tax money like its pocket change while property taxes keep on going up. Get rid of the 5 member committee and elect a mayor who will work full time and take responsibility for what goes on. Time for a revolt.
