From the January closed session of the LIC

It seems like no one in the Township has even spoken to UPS about this. The big problem is that the Cheder entrance is directly opposite of UPS. The Cheder should have been required to move their entrance over, or reverse the flow of traffic making the exit, the entrance, with a stop sign where they exit opposite UPS.

Doubt any talks will keep UPS here now, they have already purchased a different site. Seems like too little too late, but good luck.

I spoke yesterday with one of the ups guys there not sure how up to date they are, but he told me that they are eyeing a place in bayville. It didn't seem like they already purchased a property.

Hope you are right. The guy I spoke to at UPS told me it was a done deal.

Slightly long post/rant. Sorry, but I am really frustrated.
No one seems to be talking about the individual homeowners who are being held to ridiculous ordinances. It seems that we are paying the price for the backlash against  overbuilding.
First, we are told that you must add sidewalks on any addition, etc. Isn't that the townships job? Don't we pay enough taxes?!
Now, the latest rules demand that any job over a certain size requires you to repave the entire street regardless of whether or not you dug it up!
The builder has complained that it is increasingly difficult to work with the township engineers. They are unpredictable and not talkable!
END RANT!

I agree. I have a friend who is trying to build a house, they are being held to impossible standards. The zoning and planning boards are showing how tough they are by making life difficult for individuals trying to build a single home on their property while continuing to let the developers push major variances through
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

Who actually passes those ordinances? My builder has another client who actually spoke to a lawyer. The lawyer said the only way to deal with it is if the town repeals or rewrites the ordinance. Who is the right address for that?

When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".
