Rise Up Ocean County was founded on the simple belief that the continued, unchecked growth in Lakewood is contributing to diminished quality of life in the surrounding communities of Toms River, Jackson, Brick and Howell. Our efforts emphasize strict compliance with local zoning ordinances and we fight our battles in front of Zoning Boards, Planning Boards, in the courts when necessary and of course here on our website as well as on our social media platforms. Furthermore we see eradicating corruption at all levels as a primary goal and as such believe that sunlight is the best disinfectant. We do NOT target people in our efforts, we target bad behavior and the people responsible for it.
To the best of our capabilities we also make ourselves available as a community resource. Our financial resources are VERY limited but we do support worthy causes, particularly the homeless and/or disenfranchised. Please contact us with any requests.
