The parking structure will be controlled by the Bloomfield Parking Authority. Based on the requirement of 1.4 parking spaces per residential unit, the structure requires 247 parking spaces to meet the needs of the residential portion of the project. 314 spaces are being included in the plan, laving 67 spaces available for non-residents.  At nearby Avalon apartments, the actual utilization is 1.18 spaces per unit. Avalon is fully occupied. 

Parking for non-residents will be limited to Bloomfield parking permit holders between the hours of 8 a.m.and 6 p.m. A control system, most likely using some sort of radio frequency device will allow access. Radio frequency technology is what is used in EZ-Pass. The exact system in the final project has not been determined at this time.
