You can only get a street permit if you get a letter from the landlord stating that the garage is already full and there are no parking spaces available for rent in these buildings.

It seems you have two optiosn, sue the landlord or don't sign a renewal and find another place. I don't know if the law quires landlords to disclose the parking ordinances, but maybe the threat of suing, or leaving could get you free parking, or a rent reduction to offset the cost of parking.

The squeaky wheel gets the oil. It's just that you have to be prepared to walk away.

It sucks that the city screwed up, but at least it was in your favor for five years.

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.

Does your building have a parking lot/deck/area? If so, you are not entitled to a street parking permit.

Permit parking is only enforced from 8 AM to 5 PM, during weekdays. That, in turn, means that permit parking is only effectively enforced from 10 AM to 3 PM, as you are only in violation of permit regulations if you are parked within a zone for more than two hours. If you leave a zone before 10 AM, or park in a given zone after 3 PM, you are in the clear.

You don't need to name the building, but what's the name of the management company? I've heard of a few companies in and around Jersey City with a less than stellar reputation that would do something like this.

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?


Your assertion is incorrect: buildings with five, or more, units are NOT automatically ineligible for street parking! The residents of said buildings are only ineligible for street parking permits IF the building was required to provide off-street parking. Buildings that were not required to build off street parking as part of their approved plans are not restricted in any way.
