The Town of Guttenberg is considering implementing alternate street parking to make street sweeping more efficient, as well as putting resident parking in effect seven days a week. Sponsored content.
“Two big projects that we’re talking about and getting ready to implement in town to try and help with the parking for residents. Alternate side street parking, which would enable us to be able to do the street sweeping more efficiently than we do,” explained Guttenberg Mayor Gerald Drasheff.
“We’re gonna line the streets of Bergenline Avenue, we’re gonna try that, we’re trying to squeeze every space we can out of our limited parking.”
Despite being just eight blocks long, Guttenberg is extremely densely populated, home to at least 15,000 North Hudson residents.
The second initiative hoping to make parking more manageable is by enforcing resident parking seven days a week, as opposed to just Monday through Friday.
“Right now, we have resident parking five days a week … we are looking at making the resident parking seven days a week. Most of our residents seem favorable towards that and we’ll probably start that after Labor Day.”
Drasheff said the town is also considering adding parking meters on John F. Kennedy Boulevard East, another measure he feels would make parking easier on weekends for both residents and business owners alike.
