FIRST REPORT: Jackson Trails files federal lawsuit against Jackson Township

Jackson Trails has filed a federal lawsuit against Jackson Township.

In December, TLS reported the lawsuit was expected after the Township denied the application, which seeks to build several hundred homes. Today, that lawsuit was filed.

The Jackson Trails development was attacked on social media, though fully compliant with all Jackson land use laws and ordinances. The developer did not request any variances for the proposed development.
During one hearing for the development, planning board members, all appointed to their positions by Mayor Mike Reina, voted 4-4 which would deny the application. However, being that the members who voted ‘no’ did not provide a clear explanation for their vote, the developer went before the Board for another hearing, but the Board refused to consider it.

Jackson Township is already embroiled in two ongoing federal lawsuits.

  1. Frum developers. One has to assume if if was prima homes or any other non jewish developer it would have been approved. Jackson discrimination at its best.

  2. I would have to disagree with you # 4 . This area is a rural area and peaceful . I believe whomever the developer was , Jewish or Non Jewish , it would be up to the township and its citizens to decide if they want much more housing in that area . The traffic will be greatfully increased in that area , and the stress on the sewer and water systems as well . there is a heavy presence of truck traffic in the area from the asphalt plant nearby . We would not want a housing development close by Think of the poor quality of life if you were to put that development there . Noise and air pollution would be increasingly present . Developers need to stop thinking of GREED of MONEY , rather than a quality of life for residents. My point is clear .
