The application for the Lakewood Shopping Village project in the Cedarbridge industrial center development by BMG was pulled from Tuesday night’s township planning board agenda.
“Over the past few weeks a number of Talmidim (disciples) have personally reached out to Roshei Yeshiva and me to share a range of concerns regarding the Cedarbridge application to build a shopping plaza,” read a letter from Rabbi Aryeh Malkiel Kotler. “While many of the issues raised reflect inaccurate information, among them are matters that deserve further evaluation and discussion.”
“We have been listening to a wide range of input, and have been working with a representative of the group of Talmidim on those, and will continue to do so, and to solicit input from others, in order to determine the circumstances under which the project could go forward,” the letter continued. “We are postponing the application as we continue to work on this.”
