Council Delays Vote on Loading Zones


PATERSON, NJ – The City Council decided to revise two ordinances that would have created new no-parking loading zones on River and E. 30th streets.

Officials said they are trying to balance businesses’ need for places where trucks can park to unload supplies and merchandise against neighborhood parking concerns.

Council members said they wanted the ordinances to make it clear that the loading zones could be used by any business in the area and not just those in front of the designated space. Moreover, they said the city needed to contain the time periods for “no parking” to allow residents to have place to park when they come home from work.

The ordinances would have created one loading zone in front of Carmen’s Pharmacy and Medical Supply on River Street and another near J&J Medical Supply on Broadway.

They had been scheduled for a final vote on Tuesday, until council members opted to make revisions.
