  1. More parking please.
    The current situation is terrible, (especially with the tent).
    Customers & businesses can’t function without parking, besides for the danger the traffic congestion causes in & out of the complex.

  2. Such a Shame I grew up in the used to be good ol Lakewood now these people come in and knock everything down I am fed up along with many others and people wonder why kids these days get into trouble because their is nothing left for our kids of Lakewood to do further more how the homeless people aren’t even though about and don’t have no type of good housing for them because once again they let these people take over the town

  3. The DIN of BAR METZRA, only gives the closest neighbor the right to offer more money than someone else wants to pay.

    But in no way, does it give him the right to get it at a better price, or to sell it to him without anyone knowing about it.

    I am taking about public property.

    If it’s a private owner, he can do with his property whatever he wants.

  4. a private owner can do what he wants? interesting your saying a seller can decide who he wants to sell it to, i didn’t know that, ( but then you can get in trouble with discrimination laws)

  5. in general when the township sells property in needs to be advertised and made public, so many times we find out after the fact that it has been sold, that’s really not a way to do business
