On November 1, 2019, the Borough of Edgewater began having residents re-register their vehicles on the registration portal of the Borough at , according to month and section of town.  This is due to Borough Staff who must still review and confirm submitted supporting residency documentation.  November - Section 1 from the Fort Lee border south to including Glenwood Avenue, December – Section 2 from Glenwood Avenue to including Hilliard Avenue, January - Section 3 from Hilliard Avenue to Archer Street, February – Section 4 from Archer Street to the North Bergen border.  MARCH 1 ENFORCEMENT WILL COMMENCE ALL RESIDENTS ARE TO HAVE NEW RESIDENT PARKING REGISTRATION OR ALL VEHICLES IN VIOLATION WILL BE ISSUED A SUMMONS FOR NON-COMPLIANCE.

The existing resident parking program remains intact however the only changes are the following;

  • Yearly renewal of electronic parking permit – This will require residents to log into the on line parking portal on the Borough SITE  once a year.  You will need to fill out the on line form and scan all supporting documentation such as New Jersey driver’s license, vehicle registration, and proof of residency in the form of a lease agreement, property deed, along with a utility bill with matching name and address.  Once registration is approved, your vehicle license plate becomes your permit.  However, in the first year of implementation and possibly succeeding years, you will also be provided a decal, similar to what is provided with the current system.  This is to provide a secondary means of identification in the event the electronic scanning system which reads license plates malfunctions.
