  1. I dont get it. Why is brick any better than raintree? You still need to come and drive into lakewood for all your needs. Your childrens schools, your doctors, shopping etcetra…. You just need to drive from further away in order to get stuck in traffic.

  2. Let me preface by stating how wonderful this beautiful city is for many obvious reasons.

    The fact that Lakewood Yeshiva is located in this town is the only reason the Jewish population of Lakewood has grown to what it is today.

    There is no question that we all owe the Yeshiva an incredible amount of Recognition and thanks for all they provide for this City on a daily basis they are the heartbeat of our city.

    The traffic problem in this city is out of hand.

    It is understandable when you experience the massive growth we are going through there will be traffic related issues.

    What was once a small town is now a thriving burgeoning city.

    The issue is many of the problem areas were totally avoidable.

    The consequences are gridlock and the inconveniencing of thousands of people.

    There is no need to squash houses onto every single piece of property.

    While I understand there is some kind of building freeze in effect what is to say in a number of years when all quiets down the entire Cedar Bridge will not turn into Pine?

    The entire Strip should be turned into a park before there is some temptation to jam it up.

    In no way should anyone think they could’ve done better I definitely don’t know that I could have.

    This is not meant to G-D forbid be a knock on any Board, Committee,or governing body.It is what you call life and all our elected officials work selflessly on our behalf.

    I do think a fresh pair of eyes is a healthy thing and as a little Joe schmo ask on the powers that may be to give this some thought.
