In the end we will have to deal with a project that will be equal to three westgate developments. The ramifications are obvious. I do not need to go on anymore about this. Let this be remembered as the moment that our planning board let down the people of Lakewood.
The planning board showed some concern about impact fees and the need for infrastructure, but the overall idea of adding thousands of homes on a property that is meant to be a tax benefit to our town, and making it a tax loss was not addressed.
The meeting ended with Shuie Shmuckler asking for a vote because he wanted to get home to eat supper already. The whole future of Lakewood was decided tonight and Mr. Shmuckler was in a rush to vote so he could eat. I hope it was a delicious supper.
