Changes to zone parking enforcement in the Heights as of 2018:

*Update: Saturday enforcement is currently suspended, therefore no permit is needed to park from midnight on Friday through midnight on Sunday.

 The area below will become Parking Zone 16 and will encompass the area between State Highway 139 to the border of Union/North Bergen (Paterson Plank Road and Secaucus Road) and from the Eastern Side of Tonnele Ave to Ogden Ave.

There will be zone parking enforcement in this new zone 24 hours a day, 6 days a week (excluding Sundays). Permits will be required from midnight Sunday through 11:59 pm Saturday night. Until full enforcement of Zone 16, Zone 2 is still in effect and will remain in effect during the transition. Residents in that zone must continue to abide by the existing rules and regulations.

All residents and area workers will be required to obtain a new parking zone permit for Zone 16 a the Parking Enforcement Division Office, located at 394 Central Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07307. Hours are Monday- Friday 7:00AM to 6:00PM.


Residents are encouraged to apply for a parking permit online by clicking here and have the permits mailed to them. The permit will take approximately 5-7 business days to be received. 
ALL residents within this zone are required to apply for a NEW parking permit through the link above or by visiting the office. Zone 16 parking permits will not be enforced until date, but can be picked up beginning in May. Non-residents will be able to park in the new Zone 16 for no more than 4 hours.
Guest passes for non-residents are available for anyone who plans on parking for more than 4 hours or overnight. These passes are $5 each and are good for 24 hours. You can pick up these passes at the Jersey City Parking Enforcement Division Office (address above).

The City will be installing new 24/6 parking enforcement signs on streets throughout the Zone 16 (Heights) area. We will continue to reach out to community groups, associations, and residents to ensure everyone is aware of these changes.
