PARKING DURING A SNOW EVENT PDF Print E-mail

Sunday, January 25, 2015snow-covered no parking sign

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning -- a crippling and potentially historic blizzard to impact the area from late Monday into Tuesday, with snow accumulations of 20 to 30 inches.

Montclair residents are reminded that the Township has a parking ordinance in place, Township Ordinance 327-25, to facilitate snow removal on public streets. The ordinance prohibits parking on public streets during a snow event as well as parking a vehicle so that it extends into the roadway when it snows. The regulation applies when any accumulation of snow completely covers the roadway and obstructs road markings.

The parking prohibition remains in effect after the snowfall has stopped and until the entire block of roadway has been cleared of snow.

Daily overnight parking permits may not be used when streets are snow covered. The ordinance also applies to metered parking areas during the hours of 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.

Vehicles with handicapped placards/plates remain legally parked, however these vehicles may not be parked in the same location for more than 24 hours. If at all possible, other parking arrangements should be made to keep the streets clear for plowing.

On-Street Parking Permit Holders: We encourage you to park in a municipal lot. Hourly limits and meter fees at the municipal lots and the Fullerton Parking Deck (located next to the Park Street YMCA) will be waived when snow accumulations are greater than two inches and until 24 hours after snow has stopped falling. The Crescent and Bay Street Decks will not be open for snow event parking.

On streets where overnight permit parking is allowed, the following regulations will go into effect during a snow event:

1. On even calendar days night permit parking shall be allowed on the North and East sides of the street.

2. On odd calendar days night permit parking shall be allowed on the South and West sides of the street.

The date which determines on which side of the street to park is the VIOLATION DATE during the 2:00AM – 5:00AMwindow when enforcement officers are out. THE VIOLATION DATE IS JANUARY 24, THEREFORE PARK ON THE NORTH AND EAST SIDES OF THE STREET TONIGHT. Night permits only allow residents to park on the street until 9:00 AM therefore these vehicles MUST be cleared of snow and moved off the street by 9:00 AM so that snow removal can begin those sides. Vehicles should be removed to area parking lots while streets are being cleared and may resume parking on the street only when the snow has been completely cleared and snow has ceased.

One-time use/daily scratch off permits are prohibited during a snow emergency and vehicles displaying these types of permits will be ticketed and removed from the roadway under ordinance 327-25.
