ROXBURY, NJ – When it comes to motorcycle shopping in Roxbury it's been a case of lose some, gain some.

On the losing side of the equation: The closure of Trebour Motorcycles, a multi-brand dealership that was on Route 46 in Ledgewood; the demise of Garden State BMW Motorcycles, which was in the building now housing Castle Printing; the shut-down of Legends Harley-Davidson farther west on the highway.

On the up side: The Cycle Exchange, a used motorcycle store at 1395 Route 46, is hoping to become bigger.

The Cycle Exchange owner Nolan Forlenza is renovating a 2,500-square-foot building adjacent to his company’s current 10,500-square-foot structure. The building being reworked was formerly occupied by the Weecycled Consignment Shop.

Plans call for using the building for additional showroom and vehicle preparation space for The Cycle Exchange, a proposal currently being handled by the Roxbury Township Board of Adjustment.

Forlenza is seeking variance relief and amended site plan approval. He wants to re-stripe the parking lot (to regulate 1-way traffic flow), erect new signs, create new doors and accesses to the building, install some new lighting, create handicap access and renovate the façade.

The plans also show that all traffic will enter and leave using the driveways in front of the main building. Nearly 1,300-square-feet of pavement currently in front of the former Weecycled store will be removed and the area bordering Route 46 will be "topsoiled, seeded and mulched." He is also asking the board to allow him to display and sell boats at the main building.

Construction crews are already at work inside the former Weecycle building, performing a complete interior renovation. "We're making it all new inside," Forlenza said.

Forlenza said he also wants to replace - with something larger and prettier - a dilapidated, small building he owns adjacent to his main store on east side. The building once housed a carpet or floorings business.

"We look forward to knocking that down," Forlenza said. "We want to beautify Route 46 there."

Necessary Discussion and Debate of Addressing School Violence

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,

As of late, due to most disturbing acts of violence against children in our schools, there is much vigorous debate regarding gun control and protection of our children and grand-children.

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.

I think that exploration in three areas needs to be more thoroughly discussed and debated. The first is ...
