Parking Changes in Ridgewood - January 1, 2015

Parking Changes in the Village of Ridgewood

Effective January 1, 2015, the Village of Ridgewood will be implementing several new parking options and regulations all aimed at achieving the most efficient use of parking resources for residents, commuters, central business district employees and visitors to our downtown.  

These changes represent months of public discussion of our parking challenges and opportunities.  

1. Metered parking on all streets and lots will now allow up to 3 hours from 10am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday at a rate of $.50 per hour. Repeat parking – in the same space -- is prohibited and will be enforced.

2. Ridgewood Parking Permits (RPP) for Ridgewood Residents are available at an annual rate of $750 to provide unlimited parking in all parking lots. A Ridgewood Resident Sticker is required and available for free when purchasing the RPP.

3. Ridgewood Parking Permits (RPP) for Non Residents are available at an annual rate of $1,500 to provide unlimited parking in the Cottage Place lot or the Rt. 17 Park and Ride lot.

4. Central Business District Employee Permits are available on a monthly basis for $80 to provide unlimited parking from 6AM to 2AM at the Ken Smith property or Cottage Place lot.

Important Notes: 

All permits can be purchased at the Village Hall Reception Desk (Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 4:30PM) by cash, check or credit card.

The cost of the parking permits (outlined above) will be prorated as appropriate.

Similar to the situation prior to 2011, extended parking – beyond 3 hours – generally requires one of the permits outlined above. (Several 12-hour coin-operated meters, however, remain at the train station for Ridgewood resident commuters.)

For more details – concerning documentation requirements and the process for obtaining permits -- please visit our website at or call us at 201.670.5500 ext. 203.
We are making a major effort to share this import
