    Sad day for Lakewood.

  • Right ? says:

    The sad day is that people can’t face the fact that lakewood is growing fast, and needs a plan.

  • To #1 says:

    So let me get this straight. It’s sad that the town votes to approve a plan? You’d rather NO plan? Am I missing something?

  • Moshe says:

    It’s sad that we keep on creating the same mess over and over again without proper infrastructure in place, if all the planning the past 20 years would have been proactive instead of reactive I think we all agree that the town would be in a much better place today. And it doesn’t seem like we’ve learned the lesson yet.

  • Just saying.. says:

    What Master Plan…..we just get a variance to build whatever we want.

  • David says:

    I agree wholeheartedly with Moshe. Iceberg Ahead!!!!

  • Lehiyot says:

    How about a few details of this “Master Plan”?

  • Me, myself & i says:

    Lehiyot,you’re a little late. There has been discussion about this MASTER plan for a while.We are the subjects to the MASTERS of this town who build with no cheshbon. Stupidity is making the same mistake again & again. We subjects can see how the MASTERS have messed up Lakewood but we vote them in again & again.

  • Negel Vasser says:

    I think that anyone voting on this plan should have to take a drive at 4:00 PM, along Cross Street, starting at New Egypt Road.. At Route 9, individual should turn left and drive till East Kennedy. See our roads! Reduce or restrict density! Thanks.

  • local resident says:

    I am a professional in this town & I agree with those who condemn the unabated growth of this town. I have been here for close to 30 years and watching it get worse and worse. Hello! where are the bureaucrats who keep promising to improve things? Stop promising or stop building. From my perspective, every tree comes down, more houses go up, roads are left in poor repair and we sit in traffic – shame on all of the people who lead this town in a way that benefits a select few!
