  5. i dont see why anti semitism is needed as a attorney it is simple...they made a laaw bec orthodox are moving to town and want them not to screw it up...thats illegal i feel bad for jackson but they were not thinking....they should compromise and make changes which the orthodox would agree to like ten acres for a school now when they loose they will be in trouble as everything will go....they have to understand orthodox residents in jackson left lakewood but must still be treated with respect

      Exactly. Jackson has an unbelievable resource that lakewood never did. 100 square miles of, mostly empty, land. If they use their resource correctly thay could welcome jewish residents and make sure they build responsibly. Make schools within walking distance to nice wide open developments that will save them money on busing and the taxes the jews pay will be well worth it. Now they will waste millions on fighting with their new neigbbors.

    3. With 3 acre zoning and people living 5 miles away from each other ,you want schools to he walking distance to everybody. Sounds like a real thought out plan.

  7. This is ridiculous. We all hate the traffic that poor planning overdevelopment caused us, and now we are calling Jackson anti-semites when they try to prevent it? Well, based on the primaries I see that traffic isn't really that bad for us to do anything meaningful, so let Jackson share our daily pain with their hate.

  8. Oh boy! Here we go again. Please explain to me how banning any dorms ANYWHERE in Jackson prevents overdevelopment

    1. Dormitories by definition are high density housing and cause higher traffic. What is the Jackson ordinance for apartment buildings? Though honestly dormitories are even denser than apartments, so more restrictions must be needed.

      It is rational to ban dormitories to maintain character of their town.

    2. How do dormitories cause traffic, by definition a dormitory means you sleep there. Most of the students in dormitories do not have cars.

  9. Just remember. Engineers and traffic experts have stated that the more people move into Jackson ,the worse traffic in Lakewood will get. Reason being is that all shuls ,schools and most kosher stores will always be in Lakewood.Jackson shul and school zoning is so restrictive . Therefore all Jackson residents will always travel to Lakewoid for schooling ,weekday Shuls and shopping. This will cause abnormal traffic. So the more people move to Jackson ,the worse Lakrwiid traffic will get.

    1. This is obvious. Jackson is what is known as a bedroom community to Lakewood. There will be no schools or real shuls there for a long time. In a few years there will be a few thousand families who have to commute to Lakewood for anything other than sleeping.

    2. Besides for the traffic issue all the perks the township gives to the schools that are paid for with our taxes we will now be footing the bill for Jackson taxpayers.

    3. This response is to all those commenting about how Jackson will never allow Shuls. The fact is that is just not true as federal law requires them to make reasonable accommodation

      "RLUIPA prohibits zoning and landmarking laws that substantially burden the religious exercise of churches or other religious assemblies"

      https://www.justice.gov/crt/combating-religious-discrimination-and-protecting-religious-freedom-21

      A bedroom community, is not an excuse for not allowing the building of shuls. Shuls are are neighborhood necessity for Orthodox Jews.

      The idea that Jackson is only a bedroom community is slightly outdated. Jackson actually had more ratables added last year then the $2 billion added in Lakewood. No other Town in Ocean County was even close.

      It seems like Jackson is being developed and a pretty fast pace right now regardless of the frum community. It would be in Jackson interest to do some intelligent planning so they can build without affecting the quality of life.

    4. I didn't say they were right under the law. I said that they will fight every shul and school until they are sued under rlupa. It will take time. They will show that it is allowed ,but you,need at least 3 acres plus 60 parking spaces etc etc effectively making it close to,impossible to have a shul.

  10. jackson must talk and stop fighting

  11. Let's just wait this out. Naturally the senior communities will shrink as they are not attracting new seniors to move in. That land will soon become available for our community homes and shuls. Hashem will provide.

    1. Nonsense. Jackson zoning is so restrictive that you can't make shuls or schools. Period. So all the thousands from Jackson will drive to Lakewood to school ,shop and even daven in the weekdays. Yes on Shabbos they will daven in houses ,garages etc but on weekdays they will drive in to Lakewood. If you are worried about traffic ,you ain't seen nothing yet.

    2. You misunderstand. I am talking about the senior communities in our Lakewood.

    3. A lot of senior communities are being brought by frum people who want to down size and be near there kids.
