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.  Any parking suspensions are 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.
