  1. At last nights meeting there were numerous successes indicating that the message is getting through.

    1) There was a visible large number of people there that aren't usually at the meetings.

    2) The board president announced that pursuant to directions that they've received from the Township Committee, they will be a lot tougher now on approving variances and they would prefer that applications reduce density and come with no variances.

    3) Members got up to speak to oppose an application looking to build a new cul de sac with 5 houses in the place of 2.The board grilled the developer and ultimately denied the application with a resounding across the board no!

    4) An application to build 11 lots in the Oak Street Area was denied after the board noted the numerous variances that were requested.

    Unfortunately the planning board meetings last 3+ hours and the public hearing portions are at the end of the meeting which caused many people to leave as the night went on.

    Tonight at 7:30 there is a Township Committee meeting. The township committee meetings are very short (often just 40 minutes) and the portion open to public comments is very close to the beginning. This is extremely important as the township committee has the power to really change things and to replace zoning board members. Please come to the meeting on time at 7:30 and speak up at the 4 minute per person public portion. Tell them about how the traffic is impacting you and tell them that they need to do something to stop the overbuilding. Tell them that they need to overhaul the zoning board and ensure that the board stops downzoning. They are looking to vacate another 4 paper streets. Tell them to stop vacating streets and allowing everything to be a closed cul de sac. We need more through streets!!! See here http://www.takebacklakewood.com/township-committee-and-planning-and-zoning-board-members.html for 2 sample letters to get some ideas for talking points.

    Every person who speaks at the meeting will have a meaningful impact on the board and put them in the position of having to make more promises in public to do something. We need to get them to in front of the video-taped township committee meeting make meaningful promises and explain what they will do to fix things. It is a short meeting and very easy to attend and speak up.

    Please attend the meeting and give an up to 4 minute speech!!

  2. I was at last night's planning board meeting for my own selfish plans. Where were you guys? I didn't see anyone from Take back lakewood. Why don't you stand up and make yourselves known? Why hide in the shadows if you are standing up for what is right? I can't be there tonight, but I hope you stand up proudly and tell meir and menashe that we have had enough of their profiteering while the town is left to deal with all the fallout of their irresponsible policies. Nothing to fear if you speak the truth and have no ulterior motives.

    1. I have been to a few meetings, they are extremely time consuming and more likely than not, the thing you came to protest will be pushed off.

      i am all for chipping in to hire an attorney, or to take part in a rotation of people that show up at meetings.

    2. For some reason all the variances were denied so obviously they are doing something right. Not everything has to be with a whole fanfare.

  3. Did you expect people to have lapel tags saying TBL?
