Draft Master Plan Report
Here is the 326 page draft master plan document.
Here is a map showing all of the proposed zoning changes.
The Planning Board will hold 4 public hearings to discuss the Master Plan and eventually vote on either adopting it as is or sending it back to T&M with requested revisions. The final version will be sent to the Township Committee.

The master plan is full of statements referencing a need for more housing to accommodate another hundred thousand residents which we all know is impossible. It uses an old mindset of a need to build more and more and doesn't recognize that we've reached capacity and need to slow it down now. We need to ask the Planning Board to scratch out all references to higher density or a need for more residential housing. We need to remove all of the zones that they are trying to rezone for increased density.
The Planning Board has a choice. Blindly close their eyes and rubber stamp the report that will be the nail in Lakewood's coffin - or actually read the report and edit it to erase all of the falsities. It needs to be re-written by people who are NOT developers and their lackeys. Regular citizens in Lakewood see clearly that Lakewood needs a drastic decrease in density. Unfortunately, much of the board has already been bought out by special interests.....
