WESTFIELD, NJ — It’s official: Signs in Downtown Westfield’s parking lots now show that shoppers must pay for parking from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, instead of the former hours of 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The new rule is one of several that the town council approved recently as a result of recommendations by the Mayor’s Downtown Task Force.

Parking remains free throughout downtown on Sundays and holidays. Free parking is also available after 10 a.m. every weekday and all day on weekends in the unnumbered spots on the South Avenue side of the train station.
