Lakewood isn't over developed. It's 24.98 miČ for around 4k people per square mile.

You got a traffic problem. Get two or three lane roads and it'll be fine.

You can't just prevent people from moving in because you like life how it is, or was.

More people = more money for everyone that has a business ;D

Lakewood's roads were not built to handle this many people. Even if all of the current roads were widened (not happening in my lifetime) we still don't have a proper grid to allow for various ways of getting around. The problem was further exacerbated by many cul de sacs and vacated roads further constricting traffic flow.

Yes we have a traffic problem. We're compounding it by adding density on top of that. There are areas with lakes and parks included in our borders that are non buildable. In the areas that are buildable, we are killing them by overbuilding.

While you can't stop people from buying a lot and building a house, you can stop people from buying a lot, subdividing it into 4 lots with a zoning change, building 4 lots with 8 families and 16 cars. That entails spot zoning and variances and can and should be stopped. This is not farfetched. Actually,  on Monday night an applicant is looking to turn 4 lots on W. County Line into 51 townhouses!!!

It's not a matter of wanting go back to 50 years ago when this was a resort town.  It's simply recognizing our limits.  Dumping more and more houses on our already crowded neighborhoods has caused tremendous problems in the past few years and is slated to get much worse if it's not stopped now.

Thanks, We've obtained a draft of the PRV agreement but we don't yet have the final which will be signed today.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

There is now a real concern that IF the proposed road changes and traffic fixes are actually implemented, they will tie up township resources for many years putting the rest of the town on hold while they work to alleviate the traffic caused by the shopping center.
