Lakewood Parking Regulations Coming To Downtown

New parking regulations are about to take effect in Downtown Lakewood.

It’s all in an effort to make sure you get a spot.

After hearing complaints from shop owners, the Township Committee introduced a way to make it fair for everyone.  The days of leaving your vehicle in a space from dawn to dusk will be over.  Time limits ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours will be posted on signs.  Some of them are already up.  On-street parking will be for four hours.

Mayor Al Akerman says “Lakewood is fortunate to have a vibrant and exciting downtown with many unique stores and places to shop. Township officials and Lakewood shop owners want everyone to have a great experience shopping in Lakewood, rather than driving somewhere else. That is why some new parking regulations will be taking effect.”

To accommodate shoppers and visitors to the Municipal Complex, Lakewood has numerous municipal parking lots with free all-day parking and a few spaces with specific parking-time limits.

Drivers who park in downtown are urged to take note of the signage or pavement markings. In the next month, Lakewood personnel will be giving out warnings to make everyone aware of the parking regulations. After that, vehicles in violation of parking ordinances will be subject to fines.

If you work Downtown, there will be spots available for you during the entire day.
