Take Back Lakewood
« on: October 28, 2016, 02:07:07 PM »
Alright, time for some discussion.

www.takebacklakewood.com
https://twitter.com/TakebackLKWD

1) Are you familiar with us and what we're trying to accomplish.
2) Agree or disagree
3) Are you one of the thousands that agree but think there is nothing that can be done? Well there is!! :)
4) Thoughts, comments and feedback.

We've accomplished a lot in a very short time and need public support to take this further....

If anyone is interested in substance and would like to privately email me - takebacklakewood@gmail.com I will keep your name confidential (or you can use an email that doesn't have your real name etc. I will add you to a list of people who are getting email updates and we can correspond on real ideas and substance.

Mods and other policemen- I apologize if you view this as self promotion. I am here simply to promote what I believe the majority of Lakewood's residents are very frustrated about. As individuals there is little to be done but as a united group we can change everything. I have no interest in self promotion, rather in motivating the public to stand up for what's currently ruining Lakewood due to overbuilding and density.

OP, since you made a screen name just for this, I assume you will be honest with us.

From $$ hungry developers who buy an old house knock it down and build 10 houses with basements = 20 families with 40 cars.

While you're at it, pull them out of Brooklyn too.

Although here, instead of building new houses, they're building giant buildings.

You better hurry up because they're about to destroy James Street.

It is too late to stop that which was already approved. That doesn't mean we should roll up in a ball and sleep.

I'm working to save whatever is left of the future.

I dint believe you would at this point anyway, the last few developments have been selling a bit slow due to
1. so many new developments opening faster then lakewood growth i.e. people moving to Jackson etc
2. the price being so high and unaffordable and there's a lot less supplemental income from tenants as there's so many available the rates dropped.

I know for a fact in a few developments that opened recently numerous units were sold at cost price or below because the developer couldn't find buyers

@take back. I applaud your efforts.

The only way you will have any legitimacy, staying power, or make any real difference is if you put your name and face to your movement.
Otherwise bringing publicity is great, but it won't affect real change.

You need to either run a legitimate, clean, campaign and run for public office, or find someone else who will run for your cause.

Once you have real official power as an elected official, you should be able to appoint normal people to the zoning and planning birds and get this place in order.
