MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair Officials have announced that parking enforcement will resume November 1.

According to a release, Township Officials wrote, "After a thorough evaluation, the Montclair Parking Utility will resume enforcing parking regulations that were temporarily suspended amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning November 1, free 15-minute parking at meters will be suspended. In addition, enforcement officers will issue tickets to vehicles parked in violation of 1-, 2-, and 4-hour on-street and overnight parking regulations."

The parking enforcement had previously been suspended to encourage visits to businesses during the pandemic. Due to executive order restrictions, several local businesses implemented curbside pickup service.

The Montclair Mayor and Council stated that they are pleased to have been able to support the local community by waiving April and May 2020 parking fees and reducing June, July, and August parking fees for monthly permit holders as well as suspending on-street and overnight parking enforcement from mid March until June 1.
