The owners of Harbourside Place and the Shoppes of Jupiter are at it again — arguing over parking on U.S. 1.

Shoppes of Jupiter is located across U.S. 1 from Harbourside Place.

A battle started in the summer of 2015 when the owner of the The Shoppes of Jupiter shopping plaza charged Harbourside Place patrons snatching parking spaces from his lot.

Orange signs with black lettering reading “No Harbourside Parking” were placed.

Friday night, the signs were back.

Is there a parking problem? It depends on who you ask.

No, said one Shoppes of Jupiter store owner. Harbourside Place patrons spend money in my store.

Yes, said another. Harbourside Place patrons take my customers parking spaces, he said.

Two years ago, detente was reached after Jupiter Police Chief Frank Kitzerow met with the Shoppes of Jupiter general manager.

The signs came down.

“(Jupiter Police) will be working on a parking plan to protect (Shoppes of Jupiter) spaces for his customers during special events at Harbourside,” according to an e-mail from then-Town Manager Andy Lukasik.
