Parking Permits

Residential parking permits are issued by the Municipal Clerk’s Office (609) 924-5704.

Residents may apply to the Office of the Clerk for a residential municipal parking yard permit. Proof of residency (a signed original lease/mortgage agreement) and a valid vehicle registration card are required.

The Clerk's Office will review the material and issue a parking decal for Park Place West (behind the CVS) or Maclean Street Yard (must live within 400 feet). Parking decals are distributed upon availability, currently there is a waiting list for the Maclean Street Yard.

The Park Place West lot is strictly for over-night parking only. Hours are Monday through Friday 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. and Saturday 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m. Sunday all day, the vehicle must be moved by 9:00 a.m. Monday.

The cost of a resident permit parking in a municipal lot is $25 per month. Fees are not prorated.

On-Street Parking

On-street permit parking is allowed on certain streets within Princeton. Upon application, the Clerk’s Office will verify that the street is approved for on-street parking. The Clerk’s Office will then inquire if the resident has access to a driveway or any other area on the premises utilized for parking which would deem them ineligible for an on-street permit. If parking is not available on site, one (1) overnight on-street permit is allowed per residence. Proof of residency (a signed original lease/mortgage agreement) and a valid vehicle registration card must accompany the application. After reviewing the information the Clerk’s Office will issue the resident a temporary one-week permit. The application will then be forwarded to the Zoning Office for review before a permit may be issued.

On-street permits are for overnight parking only. These permits enable you to park on the street where you reside between the hours of 6 PM to 9AM.

An on-street permit is sold on a quarterly basis and is $30 a quarter. The initial temporary one-week permit for on-street parking is $10. Fees are not prorated.

Parking Options

The Municipal Parking Garage on Spring Street is a convenient option. The rate varies depending on when you enter and how long you park at the garage. Reduced evening rates are available between the hours of 9 PM and 9 AM. There are also two privately owned garages on Hulfish and Chambers Streets. Lastly, some residents make personal arrangements in private lots or with friends and neighbor.

Guest permits for over-night parking in the Park Place West Lot, may be issued by the Clerk's Office, based on availability. The application must be completed by the resident and the cost is $10. Each guest permit is valid for one week and permits may not be used consecutively.

A resident is limited to six (6) guest permits per calendar year.

Without a permit there is NO PARKING on any street within the boundaries of the former borough between the hours of 2 AM to 6 AM.
