Rt 35 by Wendy's and Mcdonalds is going to add a Lube it All to the now empty lot. Plus the new 1$ store in the plaza. Then add in the [no arrow signal] that let's you make a left on N35 at Mcdonalds. This is going to become a major mess way before the redevolpment of Fort Monmouth. Start thinking ahead.

make longbranch safer by cleeaning up the drug problem and having the poilice work together with landlords. We need to feel safe in our own homes. Maybe even make a citizen meeting with the township every so often.

Seems like Long Branch has a few problems that are easily fixed. Number one issue is the garbage. And as a poster stated, landlords are often to blame. They take the section 8 money, and let the place turn into a rat hole.Most homeowners take care of their property, but section 8 is guarenteed income, so they dont really care what the place looks like. Lets get tough on landlords and clean up the city, number one issue. Adam is the boss, so when the City is filthy, he gets the blame. It would be nice if someone from the Mayors office or council addressed this forum also.

I agree about the garbage and litter. It has to become a priority. Long Branch has come a long way in the past few years. The improvements have been dramatic. It would help if Adam made litter and keeping the city clean a prioriity. He's done a lot of good things for the city. If he just puts out the word "we're going to keep this city clean" I'm sure it would help. The order has to come from the top. The problem is citywide, and not just limited to some areas.
