After an hour of testimony the Board first approved the preliminary and final major sub-division, then granted the D-3 variance and approved the site plan related to the affordable housing component, and finally agreed to carry the application for the house of worship until January to give the applicant time to make some minor changes to areas of concern expressed during the previous hearing. In all cases Spalthoff was the lone dissenting vote.
For years, according to court documents, neighbors had complained about the property, which sits a mile south of the famed Fountainbleu hotel. They said it was illegally used as a synagogue, and generated excessive traffic and noise. City officials were keen that the property would revert to a single-family home in keeping with the zoning code. According to the homebuyers’ lawyer, the city assured them that the house could be used for prayer services if they remained private — closed to all but friends and guests.
The Zoning Board of Appeal has approved plans by Congregation Khal Tiferes Yosef to move from its current home in its rabbi's basement to a new two-story shul at 49 Bennett St., basically across the street.

In what is an annual right of passage, Mayor Michael Reina and the Jackson Township Council are calling on residents to offer their time and talent to a number of Boards and Commissions in 2023. Of note: Mayor Michael Reina is delivering on a campaign promise and is requesting volunteers for the soon to be created Jackson Township Open Space Advisory Committee.
When Ocean County GOP Chairman and still convicted felon George Gilmore lost his choice to fill Assemblyman Ron Dancer's seat, it left a mark. When Gilmore lost Jackson's Mayoral contest that saw Mayor Michael Reina re-elected despite no support from Gilmore, it opened a wound. When Manchester Mayor Robert Hudak won handily over Gilmore's hand-picked candidate in the general election, Gilmore was left bleeding in the street. Now, with the run-off election between Hudak and Gilmore's choice, Rob Arace, just a week away, it might be time for the Chairman to start to rethink his vendetta driven, post-felonious leadership.
After almost a decade of participating in land use applications and over 4 years of running Rise Up Ocean County I think it's safe to say that, perish the thought, Lakewood Township's model of presenting planning/zoning documents to the public is far and away the best when it comes to transparency and ease of use. At least here in Ocean County anyway.

Tonight the Jackson Township Zoning Board may finally render a decision on an application that has languished for quite some time, Green Apple Holdings. Although the outcome is not assured, it's widely expected that a denial is forthcoming and will likely result in a clean application for a huge religious school instead.
Yes it's the end of the year and no we don't expect a great deal from our elected officials as 2022 winds down but, the Jackson Council has important business to get done and it seems as if some Councilmembers are content to run out the clock and pass along the problems to the incoming Council.
Protestors have sued Chicago’s mayor over the church’s zoning designation, and despite an archdiocesan assessment which says repairs are an insurmountable cost, demonstrators insist that St. Adalbert’s church could become financially sustainable.
Plans by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc. have scaled what could be their greatest hurdle in moving toward building a facility that will become home to a working, living, and worship facility for members of the religious order.
For an 11 man force the Lavallette Police Department sure does have a lot of drama and although the Lambs vs. the LaCiceros isn't quite the Hatfields vs. the Mccoys, the recent decision to appoint Christian LaCicero to the position of Chief over Justin Lamb is the talk of the town and was not without controversy.
