SOUTH ORANGE - Seton Hall University has sparked a parking war with residents in South Orange.
Earlier this school year, campus security allowed students to park on residential streets just off campus. With more cars on campus than available parking spots, officials encouraged students to utilize the adjacent neighborhood of Tuxedo Park.
However, residents say they're unhappy with the large influx of cars, which make it difficult for fire trucks and other emergency vehicles to get through.
Tuxedo Park Neighborhood Association President Wilma Von de Pol says town officials and police have been helping by enforcing existing restrictions, putting up temporary "no parking" signs and adding spots on less residential streets.
Meanwhile, town officials say Seton Hall is working to create a temporary lot on open land. Plans to expand the university's current parking garage are also in the works.
