Third Phase of Affordable Housing Project to Go Before Planning Board

Groundbreaking-Spruce-Sewer-Line-pic-tls-300x240The third phase of the Lakewood Commons affordable housing project will go before the Planning Board tonight. The phase, the third of six proposed phases, will add another 62 homes to the Lakewood Commons project.

There’s currently about 130 families occupying the large development, which began approximately six years ago.

Last year, officials took part in a groundbreaking ceremony to install a sewer line in the area to allow for the further development of the project.

Seventy two homes were constructed in the first phase, and 58 homes were in the second phase.

The homes are awarded via a public lottery, and are for low to moderate income families. [TLS]

  1. how do I apply to want to be in the lottery?
    what are the conditions to apply?
    must I be married & have children to be in the lottery?
    are these homes or townhouses?

    if you know the answer to these please let me know

  2. Im not sure y they bother going to planning board. They should just build it, everyone should move in & the township cant do a thing. It cant be worse than tent city, right ?

  3. To anon- no, not 0..there are non jews living there too. How pathetic that u try to turn this into a “them vs us”… the lottery was done in public with number balls for each applicant’s number spun in a bingo cage..I was there for the last one and non jews as well as jews won; that doesn’t guarantee everyone’s able to get a mortgage though. It’s not free housing.

  4. I live in phase one & have outgrown my three bedroom home can I apply for a larger model? Yes there are non jews in my phase. The application process was long drawn out & tortorous.
