Local Real Estate Tycoon Proposes Valet Parking Lot At Wilsey Square

In Uncategorized on November 6, 2008 at 5:05 pm

During last night’s Village Council Work Session, local real estate developer Nick Tsapatsaris revealed his conceptual plan to offer valet parking at Wilsey Square. The developer hopes to have his operation up and running prior to the start of NJ Transit’s upcoming train station renovation project.

Tsapatsaris, owner of a commercial office building at 20 Wilsey Square, informed Council members of his plan to install several parking lifts on property located directly behind the Exxon station on Godwin Avenue, just south of Wilsey Square. According to Tsapatsaris, an increase of 70 parking spaces could be achieved in the area by deploying parking lifts on the identified property.

Under Tsapatsaris’ plan, drivers would exit their cars directly in front of his building at 20 Wilsey Square. A valet parking attendant would then take over. No car owners would be permitted in the area where the parking lifts operate.

Council members thanked Mr. Tsapatsaris for his presentation and suggested he move his proposal forward by submitting an application to either the Board of Adjustment or Planning Board.

Tsapatsaris is a member of the Ridgewood Planning Board.

  1. Excellent idea — this way we can pull in traffic from all over Bergen County. In fact, there is a lot of space where we could place high rise parking lots around the train station.

    Why would anyone encourage this idea?

  2. isnt his being a member of the planning board a conflict of interest… this is another example of how the west side of town is not really a part of the central business district. these lifts will be an eyesore and cause major traffic congestion.
