  2. Chutzpah:The attorney says its only "a minor sub division" therefore the public did not have to be informed of the Oak street corridor.
    361 homes is a Massive development, The corruption and hiding things stinks, Shame on the township committee for letting it go this way, Its an insult to all the residents of Lakewood.
    VOTE THE BUMS OUT.

  3. Thank you to first amendment activist for uncovering this corruption and calling out the committee and township for helping developers while keeping the public in the dark.

  4. The vote to approve the Oak street project is incomprehensible. The cost to taxpayers will be significant. The old reasoning that we need housing for our children does not apply here. This is purely a profit play for a few individuals at a major cost to the public. All of these projects should have never been approved for many reasons. Politics, and profits, as always goes before the needs of our taxpayers and residents. Our best interests are secondary to the needs of a few. Please note how such a monumental, and questionable project was passed through when everyone is on vacation. Such dishonesty cannot go by with impunity. We must take action now.

  5. Welcome welcome.. Good morning everyone... Oak St corridor density was approved with the smart growth plan years ago when all of you were sleeping... And couldn't be bothered... Even after the Smart Growth approval... The developers who own the land there had "Taynis" on the planning board because they only approved 10,000 SF lots which at that time could not be used for duplexes (duplexes were only allowed if you had 12k SF in an R10 zone at that point) . It was supposed to be single family homes. So they used their pull with the committee and created the new zone called R10a that allows duplexes in a 10k SF lot. They broke the ice on the tiny duplex lots thats turning Lakewood into a ghetto..Snore Snore.... All the while everyone sleeps..... Now that they're 99% of the way there and they require an approval just to streamline the development process all of a sudden everyone wakes up.. Modeh Ani... They know exactly what they are doing.. They do all the background work.. Working the committee and boards on tiny inconsequential ordinances and variances that mean nothing on their own... Then when they put it all together and walk in with a "As of right" super dense project.. There ain't nothing you can do... Rabbosai.. Start reading the fine print and looking up every vague ordinance on the committee agenda.. That's where the action is..

  6. They kept on getting caught up in their own lies about vacating the paper streets. No first they said its for a park than they said it will still belong to the township than they said the neighbors will buy it than they said its for a drainage basin. and the lies keep on growing and growing. Its deception and not ehrlichkeit by unzereh. what a shame and embarrassment.

    1. Klausenberg only has a small portion of the land. I don't get the cheshbon at all. Satmar can't fill their development. Belz is mostly not belzers. So now Klausenberg thinks they'll be successful???

    2. Klaus will pay above market because they want the proximity to the mosdos, the developers will primarily market it to Klaus. The buyers do not want a housing bloc as by Samar and belt, and want a house of their own. $799k duplex's will be just fine. It will all be signed and paid for before the first shovel hits the ground. all on the name of helping poor lakewood families get a chance at home ownership.

  8. 361 Units with basements is 722 new familys moving in with no way out except for the already congested Oak St. and Route 9.Those streets are already parking lots.

    I would never wish jail on anyone, but if there was anything illegal, I hope it is uncovered, at this point nothing will stop these committee members, they have no conscience. They have destroyed Lakewood permanently.

    I don't blame the builders, hey are doing hat they are supposed to do, and if they wouldn't someone else would. The politicians disgust me.

  10. Klousenberg has over 70 yingerlot who signed already to come to lakewood. I think it's easier for a klousenberger to move to lakewood then a satmara. Also vorhand said if satmar doesn't sell out soon! He will start selling to framda...m

  11. There's going to be schools and shopping centers, its not just 722 familiarity two cars each. There's plenty other hidden projects like faculty housing, matza bakery and knows what else that'll be in that Getto.

    Start the petition to widen Oak Street now.

  12. That was a huge battle by the landowners to convince the township committee to approve the street vacation, with only 3 members of the public refuting its passage. Fortunately the twp comm. members realized that the wording of the ordinance would not guarantee any future open space/recreation area would become reality. Back to the drawing board!!!
    Yes, reading and understanding ordinances, no matter how insignificant they may appear on the surface, is of utmost importance. Vacating streets is usually a mundane, slam-dunk approval process. Someone was in for a surprise that night.

  13. wow, those landowners really kept it going to vacate those streets. Why did they feel like they were being "punished"? If it isn't in writing in the ordinance, then it goes to adjacent property owners. Why should they be trusted that it would go back to the township for parks or open space? Really, for 361 future families, why are they stating that the open space is nearby? Those fields are designed for soccer and baseball games, not for little tykes playgrounds. One needs to have them placed within such a huge development for the little ones to enjoy, nearby.

  14. the developers get away with it because people are buying up these homes. If people stop buying anything that has 4 walls things would change for the better.
