    1. TBL, why do you pick and choose certain applications to fight while ignoring others that are also problematic. Are you protecting someone?

      Absolutely not, I have no connection to any Builders or Developers. It is very simple. I request the engineer's letter for all applications more than two houses. It's not worth making a ruckus now about every individual single home in Lakewood. From the applications with 3 or more houses, many of them are conforming with little legal grounds to oppose them. I pick the ones that have multiple houses with multiple variances and list them since those can be easily objected to.

    3. Appeal 3398 is crazy! It's a 100x200 lot! That application shouldn't have been allowed through the door!

    4. where is grantwood ave and james?
      james, cross, pine...... are all flooded- stop the approvals!!!!

    5. So speak up!!

    6. Sometimes a single home will request a side setback variance to put in basement steps, or a rear setback so they can have a bigger deck. No reason for anyone to get up and fight those. But when they hear applications that want 3-4-5 variances to get a subdivision those need to be fought.

    7. Why shouldn't #3998. It's routinely approved for the last few years. Definitely for the right people it's been a cinch

  3. Westgate mafia where are you now??
    you were so involved in fighting against an existing shul citing traffic and safety concerns.

    1. Westgate got pushed off. Lawyer claimed First amendment activist microphones picking up his conversations and its an attorney client privilege. Mr. Klein refused to remove his equipment and the appeal was pushed off apparently there was too much opposition.

    2. cant wait to see the video :)

  5. Where are all the safety conscious Westgate tzaddikim since the beginning of the year? You can stop a shul being built but you can't stop bussing only going along hillside? You can stop a shul being built but nothing else is a priority to raitz uhn people? Shame on you, you sick sick sick people. Where's the Westgate Rav and the PP Rav? Where's the Westgate mayor? Aha suddenly the worms are starting to crawl out of the woodwork and the rot is starting to show.

    1. The Westgate mushchasim only care about one thing. That is to settel old scores with anyone who did not bow down and stood up to them 15 years ago. Thats why they oppose the Kelmwoods shul while people have no where to daven for a lack of space. That is why they are opposing the developer here. The safety hazards on Hillside with the bus stops dosn't bother them, the cars flying past Ropshitz dosn't bother them, the traffic on kingsfield dosnt bother them. You get the gist..

    2. Opposers are crazy, has anyone looked at the plan? These are HUGE lots, I don't get why the builder doesn't attempt to sneak in more houses- easy approval

      Delete
    3. The top shot shul causes far more safety issues than Kelm woods. I drive past there early in the morning and in middle of day when people are rushing to get to minyan on time and drive like maniacs.

    4. Al Pi the new top shot shul Bais Din, arkaos is now not only muttar, but the expected way to go!

  7. To anon at 7:14:

    The lots may be big but obviously they aren't big enough for what they are zoned for and what he's trying to get out of them. Hence the VARIANCES. Say NO to variances on big projects! What's the worse that will happen if he actually only gets what the lot was zoned for? He'll only make 3 million instead of 5??

    1. It is big enough! It's jst approved for single he's asking for double, but they are big enough for

    2. They are not requesting a single variance!!

      Delete
    3. He is trying to use an old approval for single family and pull the wool over every one pretending it was duplex approval

  8. 2nd time Westgate/Penzer pushed it off at a meeting. How many times to people have to spend until the zoning board actually respects the people for taking time to oppose the application and not allow any postponements??!!! Do they respect the people of Lakewood and the neighborhood??!! I think the answer is quite obvious. You have 50 people coming out and taking time from their busy schedule to be there for 3 hours and then have Westgate/Penzer pushing it off for no good reason and yes zoning board says ok. Now thats chutzpah! Patch in ponim for all the neighbors!

    1. How come no one was so concerned when the groise tzaddikim were opposing Kelm woods and things got pushed off 3 or 4 times AND ARE STILL PUSHED OFF?!

      Delete
    2. Exactly. When it favored the Ropschitz mob to postpone and push off kelmwoods they were all in favor no one complained. They hired a lawyer went around schnorring from poor WG mishpachos to fight against a shul. Planing board chairman was playing along dragging it out trying to push it to the zoning board.
      In the mean time THERE ARE NO SEATS IN SHULS FOR FATHERS AND CHILDREN.
      Men, children are bouncing around from shul to shul looking for a seat to daven. and the establishment is quiet. Not a word from Mayor Miller about this travesty. He was contacted numerous times but so far keeps on ignoring the iussue. Not a word from the west gate Rav to put an end to this chilul Hashem.
      But now they are upset that they have to come back again to the zoning board to fight another application.

    3. As the saying goes, "what goes around comes around". Ropschitz had no value for other people's night Seder so.....

      Delete
    4. You can always join the walk to Prospect park shul they have plenty of room for all those who have no seats in westgate.

      Delete
    5. Or maybe Cheder Toras Menachem will be so kind an open a location in westgate so the kinderlach can have a place to daven

      Delete
    6. If you need seats talk to R' Heshy Hisiger of Prospect Park he will help you find a seat in a nice friendly area with no traffic or tznius issues.

      Delete
    7. Or if you need a heter to go to Arkaos and hire a lawyer to fight against another yid or a shul contact the westgate vaad rabbonim.
