City Starts New Parking Program
Roughly 850 spots will be added to streets of Hoboken.
In three weeks, finding parking in Hoboken may get a little easier.
The Hoboken City Council passed a new law on Wednesday night, creating a new "extended parking zone," which includes 850 new parking spots around town on near corners of one-way intersections. The new parking program will go into effect in 20 days.
Residents will be able to park within 15 feet of crosswalks on outbound street segments and within 25 feet of crosswalks on inbound street segments during certain times, according to the city's announcement on Thursday about the new parking spots. The new law is possible because of changes made on the state level roughly two years ago.
There are still rules attached to the new program. Parking in the "extended parking" zones is not permitted between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and when Hoboken's public schools are in session.
The city announced it will be sending out more documentation about the new rules.
