-Land Donation (click here to see image)

The Cedar Lake Property Owners Board would like to announce the donation of a parcel of property to the CLPO by Virginia Bechtold, at 224 Cedar Lake North. The former owner requested that the property remain park-like for the enjoyment of the stockholders. The Bechtold family lived on Cedar Lake for over forty years.  In giving this property, the family requested that the Board would provide to others an experience that is part of the natural beauty that is Cedar Lake, i.e. a pocket park. In keeping with the donor's request, the CLPO Board has unanimously accepted the property with its restrictions on behalf of all CLPO stockholders. It will remain in its natural state for all to enjoy. A special thanks to the Virginia Bechtold and her family for their generous donation. (2/21/2009)

Appeal Denied by NJ State Supreme Court

On September 24, 2007, the Bedewi's filed an appeal with the clerk of the NJ Supreme Court in the matter of Bedewi v. Cedar Lake Property Owners and the Township of Denville. The Petition for Certification was denied. Therefore, the earlier lower court rulings continue to favor the Cedar Lake Property Owners and the Township of Denville. A copy of the DENIAL is available to review here.

An oral argument before the Appellate Division was made on June 6 at the Morris County Courthouse in Bedewi v. Cedar Lake Property Owners. A lower court ruling in Cedar Lake’s favor had been made in 2005. On September 5, 2007, the Superior Court of New Jersey affirmed the 2005 decision! Click here to read the decision.
