[ARCHIVED] Bloomfield to Suspend Parking Meter Enforcement Immediately in Effort to Help Local Businesses

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- In an effort to help local businesses struggling from the lack of traffic as a result of the Covid-19 Coronavirus, Bloomfield will be suspending parking meter enforcement immediately. This comes after the township announced that it would be suspending alternate side parking rules for the rest of March. 

“Small businesses are a critical part of our community and with people avoiding going out at this time we believe this will be an incentive for people to stop in to our local businesses,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “This in conjunction with our plan to cease enforcement of alternate side parking rules should make parking in Bloomfield easier for residents and visitors during this tumultuous time. However, two hour neighborhood parking restrictions will remain in place.”

Additionally, in order to better allow residents access to restaurants, fifteen minute parking signs will be put on meters outside restaurants to encourage customers to do curbside pickup. 

Updates to parking enforcement rules will be made available to the public as more information about the Covid-19 Coronavirus is released. For the most up-to-date information please visit the township website at
