Important Parking/Driving Notice

Shul-ParkingAs we are now in the new building everyone must understand the importance of adhering to the parking/driving rules and laws in the shul vicinity. Please follow these important guidelines:

  • There are many signs  installed on the street around the shul. Follow all posted signs!
  • On Baythorne Rd., do not park beyond where the shul property line ends. Both sides of the street!
  • On Green Meadow Pkwy., do not park beyond where the old shul property line ends. House side only!
  • Do not not make U-turns. Take the extra moment to drive around the block
  • Follow the 25 mph speed limit.

There is plenty of parking on the far side of Green Meadow. Please park there even if it means taking a few extra steps!

Additionally, please be respectful of those who are tasked with the unenviable position of overseeing that these guidelines are followed.
