    2. Twp comm has responsibility to adopt an appropriate ordinance. That's where the action will occur. So the taping was allowed without any problems. A big thank you to him for providing us with this transparency.

  9. This is not enough, we need an immediate hold on all construction south Lakewood - aka oak street corridor.
    The traffic is unbearable.
    Took me way over an hour to get from Chestnut to Main Street via Route 9 this morning. My wife tried taking the 'side roads' like Vine, etc. and it took her even longer. This madness has to stop.
    Let the township know that talk is cheap, we deserve action.

    2. For a week all you need signatures from 25% of the registered voters. In Lakewood there are 42,000 registered voters so you would need 10.5K signatures. Even if you don't get enough signatures, just the fact that you are working on that will scare them into submission
