Noticed missing trees on Neimann Road at the corner of Drake Road? Site clearing has begun for construction of a new campus for Yeshiva Mesoras Hatorah.
According to the Site Plan approved by Lakewood Township’s Planning Board on May 19, 2020, the new 2-story building will hold 22 classrooms to serve up to 450 students, plus an unfinished basement. Open space will be provided for recess play.
The circular parking lot will fit 5 buses at a time, and will contain 45 off-street parking spaces. The applicant’s professionals testified to the Planning Board that they will stagger their arrival and dismissal schedule to be able to load all their buses in their parking lot without needing to stagger buses on the road.
Additionally, they will widen their frontage of Neimann Road, and provide curb and sidewalk along their frontages of Neimann Road and Drake Road.
The Zoning and Planning Boards have granted numerous approvals along Drake Road, with the condition that the applicant’s widen the road pavement along their frontage of the road.
