BERKELEY HEIGHTS - On Tuesday, July 7, Council member Marc Faecher told residents living around Governor Livingston High School a modification to the ordinance governing parking will be introduced at the council's next meeting on Tuesday, July 21.

Faecher agreed with residents of Crest Circle and Crest Drive that the earlier ban on parking on some streets near the high school resulted in students simply changing their parking spot to other streets, which has caused a "quality of life issue" for residents of those two roads. "Like water flowing downhill, the parking flowed down hill," he said.

Crest Circle and Crest Drive, from Gallison Drive to Countryside Drive, will have time restrictions placed on them, similar to those already on Sussex and other roads in the area, he said. One side of the street will have no-parking signs, the other side, time-restricted parking. Those restrictions will limit prohibit parking on school days between 8 and 9 a.m. and from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

Council President Jeanne Kingsley suggested that time restrictions be placed on Summit Road, also, since "that's the next street" down the hill.

Crest Drive resident Howard Baum, who has spoken more than once about the parking problems on those roads, was at the meeting on Tuesday, July 7. He thanked the council for developing a plan of action, but suggested it "extend the parking signs to the end of Crest Drive."

The details of the streets that will see time restrictions place on them will be spelled out in the ordinance. Residents will have an opportunity to comment on the changes at the meeting and, later, at a public hearing on the changes.

Acting Chief John DiPasquale and Lt. Robert Deitch have supported the change in the ordinance, Faecher said.
