Where can Verona-Cedar Grove Drivers Park During a Snowstorm?
Verona and Cedar Grove offer additional parking in case of a snowstorm.
If you don't have enough parking in your garage or in your driveway, where do you park during a snowstorm?
The Township of Verona does not allow parking on the streets during a snowstorm in any case but is making sure to accommodate cars that overflow from any residence.
“Vehicles left on the roadway during a snowstorm may be issued a summons and towed at the owner’s expense,” the Verona website says.
However, residents without sufficient parking can park at Municipal Lot 1 or at the Verona Pool upper parking lot while its snowing.
Municipal Lot 1 is on Park Place, across from Lakeside Avenue, and just off of Bloomfield Avenue. The lot has 42 metered parking spaces and 25 permit parking spaces.
“If you park in the Municipal Lot, you do not have to place money in the meter,” the website says. “You must remove your vehicle from the metered space once the roadways have been cleared.”
By ordinance residents should have ample parking for their cars in their garage or driveway but residents are always welcome to park in one of Cedar Grove's municipal lots, which do not have meters, said Cedar Grove Township Manager Tom Tucci.
“People should not park on the street during snow but most importantly, should not throw snow back into the street, especially after the streets have been cleared,” he said.
“You should also always shovel snow to the right of your driveway,” added Tucci. “If you shovel to the left the plows will push it right back into your driveway but if you shovel to the right the plows push it away from your driveway.”
