I was able to buy a street parking pass for five years in a row when I moved here.

When I tried to renew last year, the parking authority sent back my check with a hand written note saying "sorry, your building provides parking". They do provide parking at $200 plus, per month. I contacted the parking authority to find out what changed, and they did not get back to me. I contacted Candice, on the city council and she forwarded my email to the head of the parking authority.

They simply responded, "the building provides parking". Apparently, the parking authority made a mistake issuing me a street permit five years in a row. Sort of strange. It was a bummer, but since I leave for work everyday at 7AM and dont get back until 6, I can still park on the street with an expired pass. They dont seem to enforce over the weekends or after normal work hours.

When I sign and resign my lease they never mention I am not eligible for a street pass.


Thank you for your feedback. I was considering contacting my councilman, but from your experience it does not seem that it would get me anywhere.
That is very frustrating to learn after 5 years that now you are ineligible. If I had known of the restriction prior to signing the lease, I would have continued my apartment search in another neighborhood.

Thank you for the clarity. The Parking Authority informed us that our address is not eligible for a street parking permit. Therefore, I am assuming that the building was required to provide off-street parking as part of their plan.

Building Management Failed to Disclose Parking Restriction and Violated Ordinance 257-6

The building management where I reside did not provide notice, prior to us signing our lease, that their tenants are ineligible for the street parking permit as per the Jersey City Ordinance, 257-6. - "Disclosure of availability of zoned parking permits for residential buildings."
(Buildings with 5 units or more are ineligible for street parking, and the landlord is responsible for providing this notice in writing prior to a prospective tenant signing the lease.)

Link to the ordinance:
https://library.municode.com/nj/jersey ... PRTR_S257-6DIAVZOPAPEREBU

Consequently, we will have to park in a garage and pay $200 extra monthly. Despite the management now knowing that they violated the ordinance, they do not think that they are responsible and will not work with us to alleviate the cost of parking.

Has anyone had a similar experience? If so, what was the result if you took action?

I found a parking lot on Bay Street between Erie and Grove that will let you park for a week. They charge $9 a day.

Hi! Any suggestions for parking lots in the downtown area? I'm going on vacation and am looking to leave my car for a week.
Thanks in advance!
