Save Colonial Lake, Reject the Hotel Project

This petition had 5,343 supporters

We the People who cherish and hold dear Colonial Lake Park – established with great foresight with State of New Jersey Green Acres Funding decades ago -- hereby petition the Lawrence Township Zoning Board of Adjustment and the Lawrence Township Council to reject plans to clear cut 8 acres of prized woodland to build a three-story, 126-room extended stay hotel adjacent to the park. This development and hotel by Woodspring Suites would be extremely detrimental to the health of the lake and the park’s ecosystem while obliterating its prized viewshed.

Instead, we call upon the Township to pool its special Open Space Fund (created by the People when they voted years ago to tax themselves for this very purpose), together with state Green Acres funds and whatever other conservation resources are available to purchase this vitally important woodland in order to protect this jewel of the Lawrence Township park system and the greater Trenton area for generations to come.
