Township Adopts Time Limits For Downtown Parking

Parking regulations – introduced on TLS several months ago – will soon be taking effect in downtown Lakewood, officials say. Township officials with the urging of downtown shop owners have adopted Downtown Parking Regulations, setting specific time limits for on-street parking spaces during normal business hours to enhance visitors’ and shoppers’ experiences Downtown.

To accommodate shoppers and visitors to the Municipal complex, Lakewood has numerous municipal parking lots with free all-day parking and just a few spaces with specific parking time limits. Although Lakewood is one of the few towns that offer free parking in its Downtown as well, there is a limit, from one to three-hours, determining how long vehicles can remain in on-streets parking spaces.

Drivers who park in the Downtown are urged to take note of the signage or pavement markings in the Downtown. In the next month, Lakewood personnel will be giving out warnings to make everyone aware of the Downtown Parking Regulations. After that, vehicles in violation of parking ordinances will be subject to fines.

Mayor Albert Akerman said, “Once again, we appreciate your patronage of Lakewood businesses, and we encourage your support and assistance of our efforts to make every visitor’s experience to Downtown Lakewood a good one. Thank you for your cooperation.” TLS-PR.

  1. There’s enough problems with getting people to even go to downtown Lakewood – it’s not like potential customers are being driven away because of a lack of parking. This is very short sighted.

  2. I remember when meter maids used to mark the tires with chaulk on clifton i belive that was before the lakewood scoop !
    bad idea for shoppers who can go to diffrent places in town who care about down town

  3. If you are a shopper then this should not bother you. How many hours do u need to shop? It will also help u if u are shopping because u will have more spots. The store ownwers and employees will have to park in the lots.Good move all around.

  4. This new set of rules is going to kill downtown shopping. If i park in a one hour spot and i want to grab lunch and hit a few stores…forget it! How about they take care of all that loitering that still goes on down 2nd street? No, that would actually make shoppers -more- comfortable!!!
