Township officials mum about upcoming rock concerts in Lakewood
Over 80,000 are expected to attend two back to back weekends of rock festivals at the blueclaws stadium in Lakewood. The first one will take place this coming Friday through Sunday evening going into Rosh Hashana. Heavy traffic expected on the main roads coming into Lakewood. Its erev Yom tov was anyone informed to do their shopping in advance? Where will all cars park? On the official website it says "There will be NO street parking around First Energy Park. We are asking all our guests to respect the wonderful community of Lakewood, NJ. There will be a zero tolerance for street parking and all vehicles parked on the streets around First Energy Park will be towed." For the following week concert there will be parking in areas designated by the Lakewood Police Department. On social media people were complaining about the high price for on site parking. So, where do you think they will park?? In addition who is providing security at the event. A venue of such magnitude should have been addressed publicly with Lakewood residents but as usual everything is done in secrecy to benefit a few while the quality of life of Lakewood residents just doesn't factor at all.
