The motels are a blight to our community. They do not provide a service, nor a commodity and the people who stay there are up to no good. I am sure the motels do not add to our taxable income, only detract from it due to the increased crime and need for police services. It is time to get rid of all of them and make Cinnaminson a safer place to live.

Ya know Rachel you are right on point. But they must add to the town's tax revenue, they just would not be there if they didn't. No matter how incompetent local politicians may or may not be nobody gets a free ride in the private sector. BTW the history of why so many motels on Rt 130 is interesting. Way back before Rt 295 & 95 were built, Rt 130 was the major north/south free thorofare. It was the most used road for truckers and travelers going to NYC who were coming from points south and Philadelphia.
