Beginning Monday, July 22, the Hoboken Parking Utility will be making changes to temporary no parking sign (TNP) policies. The new policies were approved by City Council in the spring and are designed to reduce the amount of on-street parking disruption for resident permit holders.
Phase I of the TNP sign policy changes include:
• TNP signs may need to be purchased and posted further in advance: TNP signs for any function other than construction activity, official City business, public safety, or emergencies must be purchased a minimum of eight days in advance (for permit parking zones) in person at the HPU customer service window or a minimum of 10 days in advance through HPU Online so that they can be posted by HPU seven days before the TNP signs go into effect. TNP signs for construction activity and official City business must be purchased a minimum of three days in advance (for permit parking zones) at the HPU customer service window or seven days in advance through HPU online.
• New fees: new fees for each TNP sign as of July 22, 2019 will be:
• Fines for not removing TNP signs after they have expired: customers who purchase TNP signs will also be responsible for removing them after they expire. If TNP signs are still posted more than two hours after the TNP signs have expired, the purchaser will be subject to a $45 fine per TNP sign.
• Limits for residential contractors and dumpsters: as of Monday, July 22, residential contractors will be limited to two TNP signs per location, per day. Customers purchasing TNP signs for dumpsters may only purchase a maximum of three TNP signs per dumpster location per day.
