  1. Get the school to park some where its not fair that they keep their cars all day and we can’t use the down town parking lot. Thanks for working on this

  2. Its about time –I used to shop downtown 2nd St but now the lot is always full. The teachers from the Shul take up the parking spots for 8 hours. It should be a one hour limit or park in the municipal lots.
    Maybe the town should look into parking meters–it would bring revenue to the town.

  3. Please don’t even suggest meters. I pay enough taxes already and would just shop online. The parking is a hassle but I usually find a spot. Meters will push me to shop out of downtown for sure!

  4. Why would anyone shop downtown anymore? Everything is available today away from the downtown area. You save time and lots of aggravation too. I avoid that area like the plague. It is a total nightmare. Fourth street backed up all the way with no way to turn. Clifton resembling a parking lot. Trucks double parked all day on Clifton. No parking. Need I say more?

  5. free up the lexinton parking lot its always full everyone that parks keeps their cars all day from 9 till 5 thats unfair to those who want to shop or go in to somepnes office for 30 -45 min one parking spot can be used 8x more per day WAY TO GO MEIR GET THIS DONE THANKS

  6. Mr. Lichtenstein-I’m a big fan. You have proven that your a real man; honest, hardworking and professional to the T. Keep up the good work and we’ll continue to have your back.

  7. I used to shop at corner of 2nd got always fast service and they have everything I know they have the biggest tzedakah accts people that can’t afford and now my freind is suffering I can’t even shop there because there is no parking when there is no school there is plenty of parking please help ty meir

  8. it will be yet another failed attempt at a situation that they have wasted thousands of tax dollars on and always ends up being good for only a few not the many.
    what about that promised traffic light at the end of our block of Pine St and MLK dive?? where is that one.

    hey scoop how about a new poll?????

  9. The general lack of parking, congestion,and dangerous driving in downtown Lakewood causes people to avoid the downtown area.

    There is no quick fix to the issue, as all available parking spaces are spoken for. Where is the Planning Board? Why does the Township Committee begin preparing ordinances to better control traffic, parking, and enforce parking regulations.

    There is a critical need for off street parking, but no one is willing to pay for it. This means that as the population grows, traffic in the downtown area will continue to deteriorate, unless drastic changes are introduced.

    Some cities have pedestrian only downtown areas, with off street parking nearby, or there are offsite parking garages with shuttles to and from the downtown area.

    The absence of change will kill the downtown and enhance the profitability of the malls, where parking is provided.

    Of course, another remedy is to relocate the downtown businesses to another location such as the industrial park or the Corporate Park. This would free up needed real estate for downtown residential units.

  10. is it possible to turn municipal parking lots into multi-level parking (like you see @ malls & hospitals)? or wouldtrhat be far too expensive?
