North Plainfield Posting Signs for Alternate Side of the Street Parking

June 22, 2014 at 12:15 PM

NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Germinating from the orange spikes that cropped up around town in April, new parking signs announcing days and times for street sweeping and alternate side of the street parking have finally risen. 

The new parking restriction were enacted in 2013 by the Borough Council, but have not been implemented pending the erection of these signs.  For most residential areas in the community on-street parking has been allowed at any time, but that’s changing to allow for better street sweeping.

“We’re getting closer to the launch date for enforcement,” said Borough Administrator David Hollod.  “The utilities have finished marking their lines, and we’re putting up the signs.”

The town prefers to begin enforcement all at one time, and so will wait until all signs have been posted before giving warnings or tickets.  Because of this, plastic bags are covering the signs until they have all been installed.

Similar to an alternate side of the street parking rule, the new ordinance will create no parking zones on one side of the street for particular hours.  For a few streets near schools and business districts the no parking ordinance will be once a week from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. to facilitate picking up and dropping off students and commercial activities.

For most residential streets included in the ordinance the one side parking restriction will begin at 7:00 a.m. and end at either 5:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m.  The day and restriction end are dependent on the street, but will remain consistent throughout the year.

“The idea is to ensure the streets get cleaned and to reduce the amount of debris,” said Doug Singleterry, North Plainfield Council President. "It will allow for more efficient street sweeping."

The penalty for violating the no parking zone will be no more than $50 or 15 days in prison, the standard for all parking violations in the borough.

A full list of the streets with new parking restrictions is available by reading the ordinance at the North Plainfield web site and clicking on the link 13-02, or downloading it as a Word file.
