via Mosque plan consultant seeks lower parking need

BERNARDS TWP. – A debate over parking standards for a proposed mosque in Liberty Corner continued before the Planning Board on Tuesday, Feb. 5, as the proponent’s traffic consultant disputed the threshold set by the board’s staff.

Henry J. Ney, a traffic engineer hired by the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge (ISBR), said that while the staff projected a need for 110 parking stalls, he believed 70 would be “the maximum demand.”

Ney said the ISBR’s proposal for 50 parking stalls would therefore be adequate so long as it “banks” surrounding grass areas for up to 20 additional, future stalls.

But board members questioned the methodology behind the figure, which Ney based on parking counts for mosques with similar worshipping space in Franklin Township in Somerset County and Toms River in Ocean County.

Board Vice Chairman Jeffrey Plaza observed that the Franklin mosque had “disproportionately” lower numbers, and he asked if the numbers for the Tom River mosque would produce a standard “close” to the staff’s.

“A little lower,” replied Ney.

With the board having had little time to review the data, the planners asked Ney to return for another hearing in which he could be questioned more thoroughly.

After two hours of testimony, the hearing – the sixth on the proposal – was carried to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at town hall on Collyer Lane.

The ISBR is seeking to raze a house on 4.3 acres at 124 Church St., located roughly opposite the Liberty Corner Firehouse, and build a two-story, 4,250-square-foot facility for 142 worshippers.

Residents in the area have voiced concerns about the project, saying a facility with five daily prayers, parking stalls and lights is inappropriate for a residential area. But township zoning allows houses of worship on residential tracts of three or more acres.

As we noted previously here,

…what Jersey suburb do 150 people arrive in just 50 cars? There will be at least 100 cars if not many more. Not to mention potential cabbies trekking Muslims to the area.

Someone present at the meeting reported, “Many residents questioned him [Ney] to the point where he exploded in anger.” He must have a lot riding on this deal.

And this:

There’s another Mosque planned in an upscale residential New Jersey neighborhood a few miles away, which is just a few miles away from a 30,000-square-foot, $7M mosque in Franklin Township, not far from the Muslim Center of Middlesex County. It’s creeping in NJ.

And why should mosques concern all Americans?

  1. and planting pig remains on this property would eliminate it from possible construction correct?

  2. This is the third quaint county little town in the area to have Islam, Muslim, mosque issues. I know this area extremely well. It is pretty much lilly white, farms, horse ranches, small churches, wealthy, wall street comuters, old money, get your mail at the postoffice and chat to your neighbor kinda place.

    No mosques should be built since Islam is not a religion.

  3. STOP BICKERING ABOUT THE TRAFFIC AND THE PARKING!!!!! WHO CARES! LET’S ADDRESS THE REAL CAUSE THAT SHOULD CONCERN ALL OF US!

    EVERY MOSQUE THAT IS BUILT IS AN ANTI-AMERICAN ESTABLISHMENT WHICH ADVOCATES THE FULL ENDORSEMENT OF SHARIA LAW AND THE RUINATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AS WE KNOW IT! AS THUS, THESE ESTABLISHMENTS ARE TO BE CONSIDERED AN EXTREME THREAT AND AN AFFRONT TO OUR AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE!

    ISLAM HAS ONE AGENDA AND ONLY ONE–WORLD DOMINATION!!!!!ITS ADHERENTS NEITHER DESIRE NOR PRACTICE ASSIMILATION WITH OUR AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE!!!!! THIS MOSQUE MUST BE STOPPED AT ANY AND ALL COST!!!!!

    OH YES, WE ARE DEFINITELY AT WAR WITH ISLAM–OH YES WE ARE–AND THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A “RADICAL” ELEMENT OF ISLAM BECAUSE EVERYTHING ABOUT ISLAM IS COMPLETELY RADICAL AND UNAMERICAN!!!!! MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT!!!!!

    THEY CAN’T LIVE AT PEACE AMONGST THEMSELVES IN THEIR OWN ISLAMIC CULTURES AND COUNTRIES–HOW IN HELL DO WE THINK THAT THEY ARE GOING TO LIVE PEACEABLY SURROUNDED BY JEWS AND CHRISIANS AND OTHER NON-MUSLIMS????? AHEMMM!!!!!

    you are so right; can islam not be stopped? they continue to use our freedoms against us to get their way and they always seem to succeed. Time for the locals to rise up and block every mosque in every way possible.

  5. To ‘Anonymous’ – I believe we need to stop beating around the bush! We must demand that our public officials declare the “religion” of islam as the DIABOLICAL UNAMERICAN POLITICAL SYSTEM THAT IT IS–WITH MALEVOLENT INTENT TO ANNIHILATE ALL CULTURES, RELIGIONS AND WAYS OF LIFE WHICH DO NOT WHOLE-HEARTEDLY EMBRACE IT! NOTHING LESS WILL DO!!!!!ISLAM IS A “RELIGION” OF DEATH, GENOCIDE AND COMPLETE INTOLERANCE!!!!!

    It does not HAVE radical elements–it IS, YES ISLAM IS, A RADICAL ELEMENT!!!!! The koran and the hadiths clearly teach all muslims to subjugate non-muslims and to wage JIHAD WARFARE against the INFIDEL unbelievers. THE LANGUAGE SOUNDS SO HOLY AND PIOUS WHEN THEY INTERSPERSE IT WITH WORSHIPFUL SOUNDING PHRASES AND PRAISES TO allah–BUT IT IS DIABOLICAL, SATANIC AND CLEARLY AMOUNTS TO THE “RELIGION OF DEATH”!!!!! There’s nothing worshipful or pious about it EXCEPT AS IT RELATES TO THE WORSHIP OF SATAN!!!!!

    Some have said that we need to stop calling islam a “religion” per se. I could care less if people call it a religion SO LONG AS THEY PUT THE WORD “FALSE” before the word “RELIGION”!!! The word “religion” is neutral. The world contains many FALSE RELIGIONS which need to be shunned and avoided. The ancients worshipped idols and demons but their religions were satanic in origin–THAT’S WHERE ISLAM ORIGINATED–THEIR SYMBOL OF THE “CRESCENT MOON” TELLS IT ALL!!! Yes, islam is very much A WORLD RELIGION–A VERY FALSE, DEMONIC, WICKEDLY DECEPTIVE SYSTEM OF THE WORSHIP OF A demon god called allah, and his false prophet!!!!!

    DO I BELIEVE THAT ISLAM CAN BE STOPPED????? YES, I DO!!! BUT I’M NOT HOLDING MY BREATH FOR OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS TO DO THE RIGHT THING!!!!! IT’S UP TO “WE, THE PEOPLE” TO MAKE THEM STOP KOWTOWING TO THESE “false religionists”!!!!!
