Parents Warned Not to Park at Plaza to Drop Off School Kids
Attorney for Whiteman Plaza calls leaving cars in parking lot a “continuing problem” and warns of a “systematic plan” to tow illegally parked vehicles.
The Fort Lee Public School District recently posted a letter on its website warning parents that they risk being towed if they park at Whiteman Park Plaza when picking up or dropping off their kids at Fort Lee School No. 1.
The letter, which is addressed to the school’s principal, comes from a Fort Lee law firm that represents the plaza, notifying the school, which in turn is urged to notify parents, that they can’t park at Whiteman Plaza if they’re transporting their children to or from school and leaving their vehicles in the parking lot.
“My client has asked me to send this letter to your attention in an effort to address the continuing problem with parents parking and leaving their vehicles in the Shopping Center to either pick up or deliver children to the school,” writes attorney Saverio V. Cereste.
The letter, which is dated Nov. 21, warns that, “a systematic plan to have [illegally parked] vehicles towed” from the shopping center would begin within seven days.
The school is located just around both corners—Hoym Street on one side and Whiteman Street at the other end of the parking lot—from the shopping center on Lemoine Avenue.
