Hoboken City Council still yet to vote on measures to increase parking rates | Hudson County View

For example, currently a fine for parking at a bus stop is $53, but would significantly increase to a fine of $98. Similarly, the fine for parking of commercial vehicles overnight would significantly increase from the current penalty of $75 to $105.

Among some others, fines would increase also for “prohibited parking at all times,” “permit parking only” and “no parking loading zone” from $45 to $58, $68 to $80 and $45 to $58, respectively.

These rate increases are being considered, according to the resolutions, to “better effectuate safe, orderly and efficient use of public space and scarce curbside resources,” and since “parking violations and penalties have gone largely unchanged for over 10 years and are now out of balance with pricing for other parking services in Hoboken.”

Yet another ordinance would “implement dynamic pricing for meters” based on factors such as parking demand, adjacent land uses or peak periods throughout different areas of the city.

In this instance, based on a draft drawing that displays the pricing variations, the majority of meters placed in areas running north and south, as well as west of Washington Street, would cost drivers 50 cents for every 15 minutes, while the majority of meters east of Washington Street would cost drivers 90 cents for every 15 minutes.

And finally, the third ordinance withdrawn from discussion and a vote, would increase rates at municipal parking garages for residents and transient rates for visitors parking in municipal garages.
