Livingston Fire Chief Requests Parking Limitations at Cornerstone Way


LIVINGSTON, NJ - Monday night’s town council meeting began with an opportunity for residents to voice their concerns regarding the parking situation at Cornerstone Way.

The established ordinance that opposes parking on both sides of Cornerstone Way was in much debate among the street’s homeowners.

Mayor Steven Santola announced that over the past week, engineers and Fire Chief Christopher Mullin recommended that this ordinance stay intact for the sole purpose of safety.

According to Santola, the fire chief feels that an emergency vehicle will not be able to park if necessary due to cars parked on both sides of the street.

“By limiting the whole side of a street, we lost a lot of available parking,” said Michele Novick, who lives on Cornerstone Way. “To not allow cars to park in front of your house is an issue.”

The resident then explained that due to limited driveway space, she would like to resort to street parking, but cannot.

Santola agreed that this may not be the ideal situation for residents, but safety is priority.

“The fire chief doesn’t have anything against you guys, he just needs to be able to get through. While we feel sympathy for you, we have an obligation for the entire community and their safety,” Santola said.

Councilman Gary Schneiderman felt strongly about following the Mullin’s recommendation due to his credibility.

“How can you go against the fire chief’s recommendation? Do you think he’s making this decision haphazardly? You have my vote, Steve,” Schneiderman said in response to the resident’s complaints.

In other business, engineering services has been approved for asbestos abatement monitoring at Monmouth Court.

Councilman Michael Rieber requested that a running tab of all project expenses, including the asbestos monitoring be recorded for better knowledge of actual dollar amounts.
