There seems to be some confusion regarding the new Permit Parking for Residents/All Others 2 Hour Max signs that are being put up on certain streets. Please note that these signs are put up by the Police Department/Traffic Division and are not regulated by the Parking Authority. These signs are to provide adequate parking for residents and to discourage long term parking of commuters. To obtain your FREE residential permit, you need to go to the Law Enforcement Building and go to the Records Department. As soon as you enter the lobby, the door to the Records Department is on your right hand side. They are open from 9 AM – 4 PM. You must bring proof of residency to obtain the permit. If you need any additional information about residential permits you can call 973-680-4105. If you have a specific residential parking concern (non metered) you can call the Traffic Division at 973-680-4103.
