Letters to the Editor Re: shopping mall at Cedarbridge

JewishvoiceNY -2nd letter below
Opposed to Shopping Mall In Lakewood
Dear Editor;
I read with interest the letter (‘Financial Disaster for Lakewood Taxpayers,’ January 11) describing the controversial proposal for a large shopping center and entertainment facility in Lakewood, New Jersey. As a resident of Lakewood, I would like to clarify what lies behind the fierce opposition of many residents to this development.
Lakewood is home to a booming Jewish community. Beth Medrash Govoha is its flagship institution and wields an overwhelming influence on all aspects of life in town, including politics and religion. Many, including myself, have studied at the yeshiva before settling down in Lakewood and are therefore keen to see it succeed. In 2000, when the town granted the land in question to B.M.G. for development, it was located on the outskirts of town near an industrial park with no homes or businesses anywhere in sight. It seemed to be a win-win situation- the yeshiva would get a fundraising boost and the town would get a large new corporate park, without any negative impacts to the town’s residents.

LSTA: Old errors in busing maps hurt Lakewood kids

This is not new, for years parents were challenging the routes with the BOE maps. Lakewood parents were shortchanged by paying in for courtesy busing and the township paying the costs of non mandated public school children.

Matzav.com Decade-Old Errors in Busing Maps Hurt Lakewood Kids.
In recent weeks, the LSTA has arranged transportation for hundreds of additional students, and is working feverishly to provide transportation for every single remaining student. Unfortunately, however, there are still approximately 500 who lack busing, and another approximately 1,500 who lack busing one way to school.

As the LSTA continues working on the matter, it made a shocking discovery.

In order to provide the most optimal service, the LSTA recently purchased “Versatrans” software that is used for school bus route mapping. The software, which has also been used by the public school district for years, came loaded with the maps that the district has been using for its busing. While training its employees in the new software, LSTA officials discovered that the district’s maps have not been properly updated since 2004 – over twelve years ago. Some of the information on the maps is significantly older than that as well.

LSTA Take checks and will send checks.

Lakewood Schools sent home letters informing parents of children who receive courtesy  busing to pay the remaining balance to the LSTA. At the beginning of the school year the LSTA charged parents who are not mandated to pay $150 per child for the courtesy busing. At the same time Public school children who are not mandated are fully covered by Lakewood township with no fee for courtesy busing. Also February 1 is when the LSTA has to send out aid in lieu checks for all mandated children who did not have busing earlier and those that still don't have busing since September.

Cedarbridge traffic study concludes: Shopping mall can be approved no traffic issues.

Full Cedarbridge Traffic study courtesy of First Amendment Activist website. The applicant Cedarbridge LLC Commissioned a traffic study of the Pine street, Cedarbridge, Avenue of the States area to see the traffic impact from the proposed shopping center Lakewood shopping village. The conclusion is that the Shopping mall can be approved and operate compatibly and safely with future traffic conditions in the surrounding area. While the report claims there are significant roadway improvements planned  in the area nothing was done to fix the current traffic situation on Pine street.  Residents would like to see these road improvements done first by the township before construction begins on the shopping mall.

Smart Shopping carts at Evergreen Kosher in Lakewood

The soon to open Evergreen kosher supermarket in Lakewood (perhaps as early as Tuesday of this week) will have smart Shopping carts that lock if taken out of the parking lot area. There are electronic wheel locking systems that make it possible. Its not purely mechanical. Either one or two wheels of the cart are called SmartWheels and have electronic locks embedded in them. Also a cable goes below the yellow boundary line which serves as an antenna to send out the signals. When the wheels reach the proximity of the yellow line (cable), the electronic lock in the smart wheel receives the signal and activates, thus stopping the cart.

Question: Living in Lakewood New Jersey it is not uncommon to see many young boys hitchhiking. I feel uncomfortable about picking them up for safety reasons. On the other hand, is it rude not to give these boys without transportation a lift? Thirdly, people who do pickup hitchhikers often block other cars and cause traffic.

Assuming all Lakewood children have their busing need taken care of the LSTA held a meeting with Toms River and Jackson residents to discuss picking up some of their routes for next year. Ironically some  Jackson residents along the Lakewood border are already getting picked up by LSTA this year while mandated children in Lakewood still have no busing. The plan is for the residents who get aid in lieu from Toms River and Jackson to use the LSTA system bringing in more money to offset the costs of the courtesy kids.

The ever-expanding ultra-Orthodox community in Lakewood, New Jersey, has led to yard signs of “DON’T SELL” in neighboring Toms River." It blames high property taxes on the tax exempt synagogues and yeshivas but ignores the fact that nearby towns have even higher property taxes despite not having yeshivas.

Did APP stop reporting about Lakewood Govt

The APP has stopped reporting anything about the Lakewood government or township committee for the last few  months. Major recent news stories got zero coverage in the Asbury Park Press, nothing about the 2017 mayoral appointment, Vaad, nothing about the Take back Lakewood movement, or the planning or zoning boards, nothing about first amendment activist. Until now that paper did not miss an opportunity to report about the goings on in Lakewood. It actually may not be a bad thing it was last year that the paper wrote a hateful and shameful editorial about the Lakewood community "A.G. must take close look at Lakewood". The paper did not apologize for it. 
The reporter who covers Lakewood actually did a fair and balanced job in the articles.
The paper is still the official newspaper of the township to post public notices, but recently township notices were posted on another local media website. Perhaps a deal was struck, or when you hit them in the pocket suddenly journalistic integrity and the public's right to know does not matter.

Near record warm temperatures

Unusual near record warmth today for the next few days, high today of 61 degrees in Lakewood. Tomorrow in the 50's. Its will get cold again on Shabbos with a chance of snow. warm weather to resume next week.
