Recreation Camp Parking

IMG_1734

Dear Parents:

I am writing this letter to inform you of changes to the drop off and pick up procedures for the Clark Recreation Summer Camp which will be in place throughout the entire summer.

-Most importantly, there will be absolutely no parking or stopping anywhere on Westfield Ave. All of Westfield Ave. between Raritan Rd. and Brant Ave. is a, “No Parking Zone.” In previous years, these restrictions were relaxed to allow parents to park and drop off children for camp. However, this created a dangerous situation where parents and children were exiting parked or stopped vehicles and crossing the street in close proximity to moving vehicles. For the first several weeks of camp, you will see additional signage on Westfield Ave. to remind you that curbside parking or stopping is not allowed. These signs will direct you to use the Arthur L. Johnson Parking Lot. Any cars that are parked or stopped on Westfield Ave. w ill be issued a parking summons or a traffic summons, with no exceptions.

-As you can no longer park or stop on Westfield Ave., you should park in the Arthur L. Johnson Parking Lot and cross Westfield Ave. at the crosswalk near the north side of Dawn Dr. when dropping off and picking up your camper(s). A crossing guard has been hired and will be present at the crosswalk to assist you. The guard will be there from 0830-0930 and from 1130-1230. Alternatively, if you can find a legal parking space, you may park on Kenneth Place and utilize the crosswalk near the tennis courts to cross Westfield Ave. A Clark Police Officer will be there to assist you from 0845-0915 and from 1145 until 1215.

-At drop off, if you plan to simply drop your camper(s) off, please simply pull into the Town Hall Parking Lot, let them off, and pull out of the parking lot. At pick up, you must either park at the high school and walk up to Town Hall, or direct your camper(s) to meet yo u at the high school.

-We do recognize that sometimes grandparents are dropping off and picking up campers. Anyone who would have trouble walking from the Arthur L. Johnson parking lot may utilize the parking lot at Town Hall. Please keep in mind that the parking spots in the Town Hall Lot are limited and should only be used by those with a specific need. In other words, if you are able to, please park at the high school. There will be camp counselors in the lot at Town Hall to help with the flow of traffic.

-Finally, when crossing Westfield Ave. please model good safety practices for not only your children, but all campers, by only using the two aforementioned crosswalks to cross Westfield Ave. and following the directions of the Crossing Guards and Police Officers present.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and also for your anticipated cooperation. If you have any other family members, friends or babysitters who will be picking up or dropping off your children, please share this information with them.

Have a great summer!
