Message from the Mayor:

We know the last few days have been tough for people between Ida flooding and the “Boil Water Advisory” from the damage Ida caused. The last thing we are looking to do is to add more hardship to our residents.

Earlier today, we asked the Parking Division to avoid issuing tickets for street cleaning as we would do our best to clean the streets with the hope that residents tried to move their vehicles but understood if they couldn’t. If someone didn’t move their car and was issued a ticket in error, dated September 3rd, please email and we will move to dismiss them. If you already paid, please send an email to receive a refund.

We also asked the Parking Division to not issue tickets for street cleaning until Tuesday, September 7th, as residents focus on recovery.

Let’s continue to work together to get through this.


Permits/signs: 8am-4pm Monday through Friday, by appointment only: (Link to permit application below)



The Jersey City Division of Parking oversees parking spaces and lots, manages street cleaning, issues tickets for violations, and provides parking permits.
Resident parking permits are required for parking over 2 hours in many areas. Posted signs will indicate a need for a parking permit, parking restrictions for street cleaning, and other limitations for street parking. Parking meters are also placed in certain high traffic business districts.

 2018 Heights Parking Information for Zone 16 in Jersey City Heights.  All parking regulations  are suspended on the city's holiday list

PLEASE NOTE: When parking regulations are suspended, that means street cleaning, residential zone parking, and meter rules will not be enforced that day. Anytime parking regulations are suspended, drivers are still not permitted to park illegally (i.e. blocking fire hydrants, off corners, etc.) and will be ticketed accordingly.   Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our roadways safe.
