Ned Thomson Votes For Bill That Would Increase Density, Reduce Parking In Lakewood

Outgoing Assemblyman Ned Thomson on Thursday voted in a committee hearing to advance legislation that would potentially bring higher density and less parking to Lakewood and beyond.

In essence, the legislation would allow for higher density and fewer parking spaces in areas that are close to public transportation.

With the NJ Transit line running through Lakewood, much of the new developments would be subject to this new law, allowing developers to provide less parking, creating far denser neighborhoods.

Under the bill, parking could be reduced by up to 50% in areas near public transportation. Being that parking generally takes up more space than homes themselves, this legislation could dramatically increase density in Lakewood.
