Street maintenance and other Village of Ridgewood employees were advised by their supervisors this week to avoid work along Heermance Place, which was recently determined to be private property belonging to the Board of Education (BOE). Orders are considered effective until the village and school district reach a consensus regarding future upkeep and rules enforcement along the roadway.
Surveys and a full title search recently revealed that the BOE owns most of Heermance Place, the thoroughfare passing between the high school and Stadium Field. The portion of Heermance that fronts two residential homes is owned by the Village of Ridgewood.
The BOE subsequently converted the 23 parking spaces along the road from first come, first serve to faculty-only spots.
