perhaps next year someone could take a look at the impact upon the residents of MAPLE avenue. Each friday it is an absolute nitemare. we are unable to leave our driveways due to traffic being diverted down Maple Avenue rather than having traffic diverted at 112 which is better equipt to deal with the influx of traffic. Also those frequently the residents are blocked into their own driveways, and are also blocked between two visitors who do not follow the DMV parellel parking recommendation of leaving 2-3 feet between yourself and that of the car ahead and behind you . Each time the Village holds ANY TYPE of PUBLIC event. those of us who are unfortunate enough to live within walking distance of Main street are extremely inconvienced. I have called the code enforcement officers on several occassions when both of my family's vehicles were blocked in...one inthe driveway, one in the street...thereby causing my husband to miss work on more than 1 occassion, Only to be told that since the event was nearly over they werent going to do anything about it. The even being nearly over doesnt get my husband to work on time does it?? ...Perhaps a parking ticket or at minimum a warning to those who do not follow driver's ed 101 may be in order??

perhaps, a partial solution would be to go back to what was done nearly 20 years ago when we first moved into our home, and that was that those who DID NOT live or were visiting a known address to that area of MAPLE avenue werent permitted to go down that area while Main Street was closed down. While it was a bit of a nuisance initially when the code enforcement officers didnt even let those of us who lived on the southern most area of the street, particulaly when returning from work after doing food shopping and bringing toddlers and infants home from the sitter, eventually it was worked out and the enforcement officer becasme more familiar with who truly did belong in that area. The noice and the litter is a minor annoyance that we are able to tolerate but losing time from work is beyond acceptable.
