Crossing Guard on Forest Park Ave and Wendt
We are turning to you as Traffic Commissioner in Larchmont, New York. The Village of Larchmont has always partnered with the community to protect the lives of its citizens. Chatsworth Avenue School is an elementary school for boys and girls ages 4 to 12, located on Chatsworth Ave. Every morning and afternoon there are hundreds of children being dropped off, picked up, walking, biking to and from the school. We, the Parents of the children attending Chatsworth, are extremely concerned for the safety of our children.
Forest Park Ave is a residential street and the main entrance of the school. There are so many close calls with cars parking illegally, parking in the crosswalks, vehicles not stopping as children attempt to cross to and from school. We fear that it is only a matter of time before there is a serious incident.
We implore you to request the addition of an School Crossing Guard for the safety of our children. School crossing guards are found at most schools throughout the state– We are asking for a crossing guard to be present at the front of Chatsworth Ave School on Forest PArk Ave, during pick up and drop off. All parents should be able to send their children to school without the concern of their children reaching school safely.
We thank you in advance for your consideration of this matter – as well as for all that the Village of Larchmont does on a daily basis to keep our children and community safe.
