CITY OF NEWARK OFFERS FREE HOLIDAY PARKING
AT ALL 1,600 METERS, STARTING december 16th

Newark, NJ – Mayor Luis A. Quintana announced today that the City of Newark is encouraging shoppers and residents to make their holiday purchases in Newark’s downtown and neighborhood retail areas, by offering free parking on its streets beginning on Monday, December 16th. The city resumes collecting from the meters on Monday, December 30. 2013.
On those days, all 1,600 parking meters on the streets of Newark will be covered in plastic bags, and no charges will be assessed for parking at meters. The city has parking meters in all five wards, but most are in the central business district
“We hope that this free parking will encourage people to come to Newark to do their holiday shopping, and enjoy our many attractions and dining options,” said Mayor Quintana. “We welcome holiday shoppers, who will find Newark a friendly and convenient place for all their shopping needs.”
The program of waiving parking charges comes under municipal ordinances, and is run by the Newark Parking Authority, and was decided upon after consultations with Mayor Quintana.
While charges for parking meters are being waived, fines for double-parking, and parking in prohibited zones, remain in effect, and will be enforced. Municipal ordinances banning parking at bus stops or at fire hydrants also remain in full force.
