There will be a few more places residents on the west side of Ridgewood cannot park if an introduced ordinance is passed next month.

Brought to the table at the Feb. 8 council meeting, the ordinance would prohibit parking at several points along the northern side of Sherman Place – most notably near the corner the curb line of westbound Godwin Avenue, an intersection at which a man and his 10-year-old child were struck last September.

  1. Let me guess. To offset this and help out businesses, commuter parking at the train station will be halved and permit prices raised to $2000/yr.

  2. Residential streets should not be used as parking for shoppers, commuters and store owners.

    It is a quality of life issue. The residential streets are not here for the convenience of shoppers and business owners.

    Maybe the downtown does not need to grow anymore. I am done with it. The CBD think that it is all about them.

  3. Who is so well connected on Sherman place?

  4. I would hate having strangers park in front of my house all day. Only exception should be if you actually live downtown.

  5. Thank goodness, it is about time. Travel through Sherman a few times a week and you take your life in your hands each time you use the blind turn. Parking makes it worse and only one car at a time can pass. I don’t live there but always thought it should be a one way street.

  6. Sherman place residents have long fought with evidence and diligence. Not connection. Someone should Ask about the connection on pomander that landed them in this mess to begin with.
    What a joke. That last council bites us in the ass endlessly from beyond the grave.
    Sherman place is a nightmare and an accident waiting to happen- even without cars parked there.
    Valley hospital used local streets for their employees and visitors ruining the neighborhood. That shouldnt be allowed either.

  7. “Who is so well connected on Sherman place?” Apparently not the residents! They are not in favor of a ban, and did not ask for one. The residents of Pomander had “friends” on the old council, were granted no parking on their street and that traffic is now on Sherman. Instead of recognizing they have created an issue on Sherman, the residents of POMANDER suggested no parking on Sherman either, despite the idea that residents on Sherman actually don’t want the limits there. Unbelievable.
