Please note that the Cottage Place Annex parking lot (between The Gap and Gilsenan & Co. Real Estate is a 3-hour zone). The 15-minute meters which currently exist will remain, at 75 cents per hour.
CBD Employee Parking Spaces: These spaces require a CBD Employee Parking Permit and are located in the Walnut Street parking lot and the Cottage Place parking lot, and are delineated by signage. CBD Employee Parking Permits and monthly hang tags for CBD Employee parking may be purchased at the Reception Desk in Village Hall or daily parking may be paid for through Parkmobile or in Cottage Place, at the parking kiosks.
We are extending our Parking Kiosk Pilot Program, and removing parking meters. In addition to the Chestnut Street parking lot, parking kiosks have been placed in the following locations:
Cottage Place parking lot
Cottage Place Annex parking lot (between The Gap and Gilsenan & Co. Real Estate)
Both sides of North Broad Street, between Franklin Avenue and East Ridgewood Avenue
The parking kiosks will accept coins, dollar bills, and credit cards (Visa, Master Card and American Express), and are marked with signs. The parking kiosks require you to put in your license plate number of your vehicle. Parkmobile is also available to pay for parking, by downloading the Parkmobile app to your Smartphone.
Effective September 25, 2018, the new meter times for the train station parking lot and the Park and Ride parking lot will be:
Monday through Friday – 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (14-hour meter duration)
