Planning Board Gives Final Denial Resolution To GCU 20 Year General Expansion Plan

Planning-Board-Meeting-gcu-picLast night, the Planning Board gave their final rejection to the Georgian Court University 20 year general expansion plan. The Planning Board last month postponed the vote on the Georgian Court University resolution, upon the board Lawyer’s request, as they reviewed some of the items written in the application. 

The resolution denied the University’s application for a 20-year general development plan, after it ended in a stale mate on December 21, 2010.

At that December meeting, a motion was first made to approve the plan with the exception of the two entrances, but that did not pass. Another motion was then made to pass the entire project, but that ended in a stale mate, which legally creates a denial.

GCU is expected to fight the rejection in court.

Approved last night were several applications for some other schools who requested permission for additional buildings. TLS.

  1. I think they should be allowed to expan. Yes there is an issue with the opening of 2 more of their gates but really, the town can not tell them how they use their own property. It is where they want to build for the future..and they will Never give it to Lakewood to build more houses on.

  2. We build shuls and schools in every neighborhood even though the neighbors don’t like it.

    TLS why won’t you post this? I’m a kollel yungerman and I don’t mean this in an antisemitic way. My point is that we have to wake up and realize that we do to others what we don’t want GCU to do to us.

    The fact is that these schools and shuls bother the neighbors, Jew and non-Jew alike, and we just don’t care.

  3. #5, it’s not true that we don’t care. I know of neighborhoods where frum people stopped shuls from coming in because they thought it would make the neighborhood more noisy, etc.

  4. IT’s a shame that they can’t expand yet all the other school can . how about the one’s on cross st, neiman rd, and prospect st, something is wrong with this, GCU has been here even before BMG
