body

 

                     WHEREAS, the Department of Engineering, Division of Traffic and Signals and the Newark Parking Authority desires to extend the time limits on parking and street parking boundaries (affecting all City Wards); and

 

                     WHEREAS, the parking time limit will be increased to allow motorists to park for an extended period of time on certain streets throughout the City; and

 

                     WHEREAS, the street parking boundaries are being extended in Chapter 7 to allow for more meter parking and to cover areas that are highly congested that do not allow for an efficient turnaround in the parking availability, due to the fact that there are no meters regulating the time limit on parking; and

 

                     WHEREAS, some of the changes made in this Ordinance will replace sections of R.O. 23:5-4 and R.O. 24:5-5  in order to have the street boundaries and hours of parking in one ordinance to make it easier for the Parking Attendants, Police Officers, and Citizens to know the regulations.
