Fire lane concern at the Factory parking areas

NW Parents,

We have received notification from the Town of Wake Forest that cars parked in the Factory ballpark fire lanes are a growing concern/item of enforcement for the Wake Forest Police Department.  Any cars parked in fire lanes (see attached image we received from the Town of Wake Forest) are at risk of being towed.  This also includes parking in front of the entrance gate.

Please do not park in these areas.

Thanks!
